Those who consider Facebook a social network and nothing more should better thing again because a new platform for shows has just been unveiled. Simply dubbed Watch, this piece of code promises to be available in Facebook's TV apps, as well as on mobile devices and PCs.

Facebook Watch comes with a set of features suggesting that the social media giant is ready to deliver original video content. Obviously, this means that the tools needed by media creators are also ready to roll out. Facebook's news article about this service highlights the following types of shows:

  • Live shows that connect with fans
  • Shows that engage fans and community
  • Shows that follow a narrative/have a consistent theme
  • Live events that bring communities together

Unfortunately, only "a limited group of people in the US" have access to Facebook Watch, next to a limited group of creators that would get access to Shows. The plan is to fully unleash the service soon, so those who do not get early access can only wait.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
