Facebook Watch is the newest addition to the social media platform’s slew of features. Each show on the platform is made up of episodes — live or recorded — and follows a theme or storyline.
The platform is perfect for sharing a video series, such as a weekly cooking show, a daily vlog, or a set of videos with recurring characters or themes. A popular example is Humans of New York: The Series, which tells the stories of Brandon Stanton’s experiences talking to people on the streets of New York and abroad.
Facebook is also introducing Show Pages to make the process of creating a show and publishing new episodes simple. Show Pages are organised in a way that clearly conveys what the show is about, enables people to watch episodes and other related videos, and connect with communities of fellow viewers.
Over time, creators will be able to monetise their shows by adding ad breaks.
