The state-of-the-art Video service adds to Facebook contending YouTube and TV networks. No sooner users will have an experience of a new video tab on the massive social media platform Facebook. The video tab has a range of shows and TV series where few of them funded by the Facebook itself.

The comments on the shows could be seen and can connect with the friends and groups based on your interest. There are also, dedicated shows where people can stick to them by subscribing.

Previously, the videos are just posted and every individual can go live. This video feature will dominate the short segments of news channels. Even though video tab has launched in the last year, Facebook says it needs some modifications and content for best user-end-experience.
