Facebook Muscles Into the Online Video Scene
Posted in: Online TV/Music at 11/08/2017 20:28
Facebook is moving into short-form, professional video with Watch. It is a latecomer to the field, following similar moves by rivals such as Twitter, Snap, Spotify and Reddit. But Facebook could still wind up being a big winner.
More than 30 partners, including A&E, Hearst, and MLB, will produce content for Watch, which began appearing as a tab for some U.S. users on Thursday. Over time, the company expects the offering to grow to hundreds, and possibly thousands, of shows.
