Facebook Goes Head-To-Head With YouTube With ‘Watch’

In a blog post, Facebook outlined the new service that it calls “Watch… a new platform for shows…”

“We’re introducing Watch, a new platform for shows on Facebook. Watch will be available on mobile, on desktop and laptop, and in our TV apps. Shows are made up of episodes — live or recorded — and follow a theme or storyline.”

The new feature will roll out to a limited number of users in the US first.

According to TechCrunch, some Facebook users will have access starting today and that partners who create video content will make 55% of ad revenue.
