Facebook's new video service is called 'Watch.' But will you?

One caveat that Watch now carries is its current availability; according to the blog post that Facebook posted on their blog, the Watch will only be available for United States citizens as of writing but rest assured that the expansion is underway.

San Francisco: Facebook Inc. on Wednesday made its biggest move to date to compete in the television market by expanding its video offerings with programming ranging from professional women's basketball to a safari show and a parenting program.

Facebook envisions its new Watch feature as TV designed for social media, a place where users comment, like and interact with show creators, stars and each other - and never leave.

And the viral power of the compendium clip has not only drastically increased PAA's following - to the tune of an additional 1.4 million Facebook fans since the video went live last month, the company says - but it has also increased the visibility of featured creators. The company has rolled out Watch- a new way to view videos on social media.

More tha 30 partners, including A&E, Hearst, and Major League Baseball will be responsible for content generation for Watch.

Amazon hired Schawe-Lane and Lane as. "I thought we would be safe and accepted", Schawe-Lane said in a telephone interview. Two months before resigning, they filed discrimination charges with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Facebook said it will be introducing Watch to a limited group of people in the US and plans to bring the experience to more people soon.

"You'll be able to chat and connect with people during an episode, and join groups with people who like the same shows afterwards to build community".

Imagine that all these users that Facebook have gathered throughout the years; now, the Watch can also capitalize on the huge amount of audience and statistics they have.

The shows available include "Nas Daily", "Gabby Bernstein" and "Kitchen Little". They also mentioned these possible features that are included in Watch; shows that engage fans and community, live shows that connect directly with fans, shows that follow a narrative arc or have a consistent theme and Live events that bring communities together.

Business Insider reports that Watch is scheduled to roll out August 28 but only to a small number of people at first. Watch is basically the redesigned Video tab which is already available to US users. According to the video shared by Facebook, when the user taps on the video tab, they will be taken to page with videos and different categories.
