Facebook Wants Your Video Views

facebook-video-blogSpanAfter you’ve watched a video on your mobile device that was posted on your facebook wall, there will now be related videos recommended (if you’re part of the test subset). This will work only for videos uploaded to facebook, not shared content.

Getting users to watch more videos raises the time spent on facebook and turning facebook into more of a tv channel makes it more attractive for integration on Smart TVs.

Of course the endgame here is selling ads and sponsored recommendations by owning your UGC like Youtube and Vine.

Techcrunch has more.
