Early in August, Facebook launched a new tab, Watch, where it plans to showcase new funded shows. Facebook says the new platform is for all creators and publishers of video-based content to their audience. Facebook’s goal is to create a community of video watchers on the social networking platform and while at it make money.
Users will discover new videos based on the communities they ascribe to and what their friends are viewing.
