Facebook will be directly controlling video content that will appear in the news feed of almost 1.5 billion-member of Facebook’s Social Network that includes Instagram and Facebook. The main goal of bringing TV service to facebook is to attract young Snapchat-Loving to facebook who are increasing every day.
The company will also introduce 5-30 minutes high-budget original web series shows in Facebook’s video lab comparable to Netflix’s shows like “House of Cards” and “Scandal”.
