After a breakthrough with Live Stream, Facebook continues to be ambitious to expand its audience with its television show features. If successful, this feature will bring the influence of Facebook to a new height.
Facebook is taking a seriously its plan to offer TV shows right on its site. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is persuading Hollywood producers to by such TV programs for $ 3 million per episode and hundreds of other productions. Facebook has set a goal of turning the late summer into a scheduled launched time for this program and is expected to attract the age of 13 to 14.
The source also said that Facebook would target people aged from 17 to 30, so the company is looking for TV programs like Pretty Little Liars, Scandal or The Bachelor of ABC. We can expect dozens of other social network programs when the list of these programs is fixed.
Although Facebook has not confirmed this information, it spent millions of dollars on media companies to post content directly to their website last year
Focusing on high quality content helps Facebook outperform when compared with others such as Snapchat or Twitter. Snapchat also has a solid foundation in this original content area with programs coming from big names such as Disney, MTV, MGM, A&E, etc. However, these programs are shown in a different format with each episode lasting only 3 to 5 minutes.
It remain unclear whether Facebook also want to make such short clips or not, but according to the Wall Street Journal, Facebook is considering a time about 10 to 30 minutes. Our News Feed will be lively thanks to the variety of these Facebook shows.
