Facebook will begin rolling out it's Watch tab to a small percentage of users from tomorrow. 

The tab will be the new home of all video content on the social media platform including programs commissioned by Facebook. At the time of launch there will be 40 original shows but Facebook have plans to create hundreds more. 

Over time the tab will curate content to users personal interests and you will be able to search through options using reactions. 

Facebook hope this new section will open up new ways to generate advertising revenue without clogging people's newsfeeds. If successful, this move will post a threat for Netflix, Amazon and YouTube.
