In January of this year, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg announced the introduction of a new feature called “watch movies,” which allowed users to watch online content on the social network without logging into their account.
While it was initially billed as a way for people to enjoy movies and TV shows they didn’t own, the feature also served as a kind of platform for monetization.
Now, Facebook has expanded the feature to allow for a wide range of content from other sources, including Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and YouTube.
But what is it that makes a movie a “watchable” piece of content on Facebook?
What does it mean to be a “video” piece?
And how does the platform’s video service, which allows users to upload short clips and videos to its site, make money?
Mark Zuckerberg answered all of these questions and more at the 2015 Facebook Live conference, where he explained the new features in greater detail.
But before we delve into the details, here’s a look at how Facebook’s video business operates on Facebook.
Facebook’s Video Platform Video content is made up of two different categories of content: “Watchable” and “Non-Watchable.”
The term “watchables” refers to videos that users can easily view and share in a short amount of time.
“Non watchables” includes videos that Facebook deems too long or too short, but Facebook considers the video to be “watchible” as long as the video is at least 1 minute and 30 seconds long.
The term, “non watchables,” also applies to videos on other platforms that users may have viewed.
“Watchables” can be uploaded to Facebook, but they can only be viewed by “likes” on the video platform.
When users post a “like” on a video, the video can then be watched and liked by other users in the same video’s timeline, who will then share the video with other friends and invite them to view it.
These videos, called “liked videos,” can then also be watched by people in the “followed” and/or “following” circles on the page.
Facebook has also created “followers,” which are individuals who have shared the same “liking” or “follow” videos on the same page as the person who shared them.
These “follower videos” can then automatically be shared by those “likers” and followers, which creates a network of “loved” and other “followable” videos that can be watched.
A video’s “like” or comment can also be used as a filter on who can view it, but only after the video has been liked and comments have been made.
This allows users who may be “lacking the time or inclination” to comment on a “liker” video to see if they can get a comment on it, as well as “lucky” or high-quality comments from others in the video’s audience.
Facebook does not offer a way to add or remove “likers” and comments.
The video itself, which can be shared and watched by anyone, will remain “watchy,” and Facebook does make sure that users are able to easily “like and comment” videos they watch.
However, when a video is shared on Facebook, it’s not just the person posting it who can watch it.
Users who follow the “lIKers” or the “commenters” in the videos can see what’s going on, but the people who posted the videos are not, meaning that they can’t see the content being shared.
For this reason, a “follow-user” like button on the bottom right of a video will not appear when someone clicks on it.
Facebook allows “lives” to be viewed and shared by other people who are connected to the video, but “livers” can’t share them.
“Livers” also can’t “lose” a video from their account, as long they’re in the user’s timeline.
If someone deletes a video’s account, “liver” members can’t re-add it to their timeline.
Facebook also requires that videos are uploaded to a separate server.
When someone posts a video on Facebook and “lifts” it from the “watchlist,” Facebook will remove it from their profile and put it on the “Lives” section of the “Watchlist,” which will automatically appear in the timeline for “lifter” members who are also viewing the video.
“lifted” users can then access the video and add it to the “lists” they have created for videos on Facebook as well.
Facebook is not a streaming video service by definition, and this means that Facebook doesn’t offer the ability to upload a “live” video from a user’s mobile device to a “streaming” service.
This means that videos that people upload to Facebook won’t
