Facebook Watch was launched globally less than a year ago, and in that time has built an audience of more than 720 million people monthly and 140 million people daily who spend at least one minute in Watch. The Facebook newsroom caught us up with some of the accomplishments and growth of the platform.
Why it Matters:
Facebook Watch was built on the notion that watching videos can help people connect more deeply with others, instead of the platform being a passive or solitary social media experience. Watch provides virtually unlimited ways — comments, shares, reactions, polls, Groups, messages, Watch Parties, and more — to connect with people through video.
