Mark Zuckerburg is at it again. Facebook has decided to make its foray into the streaming world with the Watch button. According to his Facebook post, this will be a place where users can discover shows that their friends are watching. The segment will also allow users to follow their favourite shows and creators.

Another important possibility is that Facebook users will be able to chat and connect with people during an episode. They will also be able to join groups of people who like the same show.  The feature will roll out in the US first and later all over the world.
