Facebook Expands Watch Party to All Pages

 

today announced its intent to expand the availability of Parties to all and profiles across the social network. Parties launched strictly in Facebook Groups earlier this year, and since then Facebook says there have been 12 million Parties. Parties, which let people videos together in real time, generate a lot of engagement.

Facebook wants to see even more engagement, so it is making Watch Parties easier to find, set up, and share. Viewers and hosts can comment in real time as the video plays. Some new features are being added to the tool, such as the ability for the host to schedule the Watch ahead of time.

Further, comments will now be threaded to make it easier for viewers to have on-going conversations. Watch Party is available on PCs and mobile devices.
