On 22 September 2020, Facebook provides pro-tips in using video playlists and series.
Playlists are collections of videos revolving around a specific theme or topic. These are perfect for organizing tutorials and thematic videos. They suggest related content to Facebook viewers allowing discovery.
Series is a bunch of episodes sharing the same content set or theme. What’s good about a video series is the option to create trailers and have different seasons. Series also allow chronological viewing of content. They are highlighted on a Facebook Page for better discovery.
As per Facebook, playlists and series are a better way of organizing content for discovery and distribution. They offer a nice viewing opportunity to users. They also increase the chances of a video to appear when searching for content based on topics. Pages can also streamline their presence through multiple feeds on a Page.
Implications for Marketers:
Playlists and series are discovery tools on Facebook Watch. They cannot bring a sudden increase in video views. But in the long run, they play a key role in audience engagement. Marketers who have videos in a certain theme or topic can consider testing these two options. It may also be a good way to promote unique video content.
