Facebook has officially announced ‘Watch’, which is the social network’s first venture into TV. A new ‘Watch’ section will be added to all of its portals including the website and all its mobile applications.

Watch is personalized to help you discover new shows, organized around what your friends and communities are watching.

In Watch, you will find sections like “Most Talked About,” that highlights videos that spark conversation, there's even a “What’s Making People Laugh,” that will have shows based on how people have used the “Haha” reaction.

Just like in a live broadcast, you can see comments from other viewers watching the video as well as the famed emoji reactions.

The plan is to introduce original content first in the US and will gradually roll out to users soon. No details though on what content we can expect.
