Early this week, Facebook introduced a new platform for shows called Watch. Available on mobile, desktop and laptop, and the platform’s TV apps, Watch will be a new tab on your Facebook feed. It will feature original programming co-created by Facebook as well as videos from other content creators.
The “Watch” tab will have sections like “Most talked About,” “What’s Making People Laugh,”” and “What Friends Are Watching.” There’s also a Watchlist section to get updates on the show that you follow.
In its blog, Facebook lists five video content creators that you can enjoy with Watch.
This food-centric Facebook page gained traction thanks to its easy-to-follow recipes explained through mouthwatering video instructions.

Nas Daily engages fans and the social media community with his one-minute videos published every day. His videos are created with his fans and friends from whichever country in the world he is currently visiting.
3. Gabby Bernstein
New York Times bestselling author, motivational speaker, and life coach Gabby Bernstein mixes recorded and live video episodes to connect with fans and answer their questions in real time.
The Major League Baseball’s page broadcasts a game a week, enabling people to watch live baseball while connecting to friends and fellow fans on the platform.
5. Mike Rowe
Television host and narrator Mike Rowe partners with Facebook for the Returning the Favor series. Here, Rowe finds people doing something extraordinary for their community, tells the world about it, and does something extraordinary for them.
With Watch, creators can showcase their video content to a wider group of audience and establish a stronger number following. On the other hand, users get a dedicated spot on Facebook to satisfy their cravings for more original live or recorded video content.
Watch will initially be available to a limited group of people in the U.S. Facebook plans to bring the experience to more people soon.
