Although Facebook’s Watch Party was present earlier also, now finally it is accessible for everyone. It means a lot for content makers and media networks as it may provide a profitable substitute for the old-school broadcast methods.
- Meaning of Watch Party
- We all know that Facebook has undergone plenty of modification in the last year. At present, they have even started to pay attention to society building characteristics such as Groups and Group Chats because it leads to creating more traffic and user commitment than that of any normal posts and pages.
- Recently, Facebook launched the ‘Watch Party’ functionality, which basically enables Groups to stream a playlist of videos and then also allow them to chat about them in a chatbox.
- Luckily, the characteristic can now be used not just by Groups, but also by pages or individuals.
- To get an idea, you can note that the Watch Party is a bit same as Youtube Live or Rabbit, but it’s only available to videos that were earlier only present on Facebook. That only prevents users from seeing their favorite and famous TV shows and movies because most media networks and content makers are not wishing to post their text on Facebook for other people to share out for free.
- It is at least a good attempt that Facebook is giving it a try and thinking to modify by enabling individuals and pages to host their public watch Parties. They believe that content creators and media networks are most of the time likely to put engaging text on Facebook if they can manage when and how users see it.
- People and Pages Will Be Hosting Watch Parties
- Facebook Testing: Facebook has been silently checking out Watch Parties for Pages.
- For instance, on a Facebook Watch Party, you may have binge-watched ScoopWhoop or Tasty videos. After analyzing them, got to know it went quite good, and also that they’ve to lead more attention than non-live videos. Note that it’s evidence that place content and influencer videos gain from Faceboo’s Watch Parties characteristics.
- Till now, the most curious one has been WWE’S Watch Party movement as it shows the way TV shows and sports may find their way onto watch Parties in the upcoming time.
- On Facebook, active users know that there are WWE live streams matches every week that are held on Tuesday. But when it comes to countless global wrestling fans, then it has been observed that those fans can barely get to see the live streaming.
That’s the only reason behind the WWE again airing their matches in Watch Parties that make the goal of different time zones and a remarkable success that has been seen by them on it.
- In conclusion, we can say that Watch Parties are still amazing for individuals and groups. Though there may not be much of TV on Facebook, there is still a lot of interesting placed text that you can like to see. One of the best parts is that you can even begin your own Watch Party. It is very simple to do. You just need to do it from the ‘Write a post’ box which is present at the top of your feed.
