Facebook introduces a new video platform, Watch

PAA accepts video submissions right here, and while it does not pay for content, it credits creators with their channel links on Facebook (16.5 million followers), YouTube (1.8 million subscribers), and Instagram (218,000 followers) - which often results in a flood of new followers in a matter of days. Just past year, the social media giant launched a dedicated video platform. Watch can give a tough fight to platforms like YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos and even the regular TV shows. It was the second most-watched video on the web for the month of July, according to video intelligence firm Tubular Labs, and is the 28th most-viewed video of 2017. Per Facebook's blog post, Watch will help users find videos from outside their news feed and will be available on mobile, TV apps and desktops/laptop. The new Facebook Watch platform, on the other hand, aims to provide users with original content that's not found elsewhere. "Watch" will be initially rolled out to selected users in the U.S.
