Facebook Launches New Feature Which Could BURY YouTube

Just when you thought they couldn’t possibly take on yet another platform, Facebook pulls a move that’s setting off alarm bells over at YouTube.

Basically, it’s TV on Facebook.

We’re not talking about video memes, we’re talking actual TV shows - like comedy or reality or live sport - which would be delivered via the Watch tab on your Facebook feed.

In a post on Thursday, Mark Zuckerberg said users would be able to see what your mates are watching, and chat with them during the show.

It’ll only be available for a limited group in the US before rolling out in the coming weeks.

No word on when it’ll hit the Aussie market.
