Facebook unveils new video service

By BBC | Published Sat, August 12th 2017 at 08:20, Updated August 12th 2017 at 08:23 GMT +3

Social media giant Facebook has made a move into dedicated video, pitting it against YouTube and TV networks.

Users will soon see a new Watch tab that will offer a range of shows, some of which have been funded by the social network.

Viewers will also be able to see comments and connect with friends and dedicated groups for shows.

"Watching a show doesn't have to be passive," said the company's founder Mark Zuckerberg in a Facebook post. "It can be a chance to share an experience and bring people together who care about the same things."
