Facebook Watch is becoming a legitimate television network which is proving that the way users watch shows continues to evolve beyond relying on televisions sets to see programs. In 2017, Facebook rolled out the Watch platform to enable creators ‘find an audience, build a community of passionate fans, and earn money for their work.’
