In an effort to encourage people to connect, Facebook is testing a "things in common" label that users will see ...
Watch is a proper YouTube competitor and one of the ways YouTube attracts creators is being able to share revenues with them. For the unaware, Facebook Watch is touted as the company's answer to YouTube, and it allows users to discover interesting videos and interact with friends and creators.
After launching in the U.S. a year ago, Facebook makes Facebook Watch available everywhere, allowing easier access to videos and interactions with friends, creators and other fans.
Launched in the United States in 2017, the video service allows users to enjoy videos from different genres, including entertainment, sports and news in their personalised "Watch Feed" that carries a collection of recent videos from the pages they follow. "We're expanding our Ad Breaks program so more partners can make money from their videos", she added.
Pages within the designated countries that have 10,000 or more followers and have been able to generate 30,000 one-minute video views in total over the past two months will now be able to monetize their videos with the expanded release of Ad Breaks.
In a statement, Facebook has said that it plans to support content creators and publishers by giving them a platform on a global scale.
Facebook has been making a push to bring in more video creators, as well as drive more traffic to the original programming featured on Watch. Users will also have the option to customize their Watch section by following more Pages or removing Pages from their follow list within Watch.
A home for your saved videos: If you see a video in News Feed but don't have time to watch it right away, you can save it to watch later in Watch.
