Facebook Watch Platform to Launch Dedicated News Section

“Facebook is set to launch a news section for its Watch platform and is testing different video partnerships with around 10 publishers, according to a report by Axios today” writes Tim Hardwick for macrumors.com. Along with serving as a platform for end users to watch shows, Watch is also meant to help creators and publishers find an audience for their content, build a community, and earn money.The additional section would be the first standalone news product for national news in Watch.Hosted content would be a minimum of three minutes, and Facebook plans to launch the feature this summer to test what works best.Aside from Facebook’s monetization goals, creating a news product that’s native to the platform is part of an effort to promote content from vetted publishers, following last year’s outbreak of “fake news” on the social network.
