2018 was a big year for Facebook Watch. Watch launched to every country around the world, we opened the platform to videos from all Pages, and debuted dozens of Facebook Originals. Amazing new content on Watch really got people talking — from Jada Pinkett Smith's breakout talk show Red Table Talk, to the critically acclaimed dramas Sorry For Your Loss starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sacred Lies from showrunner Raelle Tucker, to live LaLiga football matches in the Indian subcontinent. We also kick-started our slate of global shows with our first interactive game show Confetti expanding to six new markets this year, and MTV's The Real World arriving next year in the US, Mexico, and Thailand. And creators around the world, like Nas Daily, Jay Shetty, and Laura Clery, are thriving on the platform with their own brands of humor, insight, and creativity.

How much false news exists on Facebook?

It’s challenging to measure because there’s a lack of consensus on how to actually define “false news.” There’s a spectrum of content — from satire to opinion to hoaxes intentionally crafted to deceive — that different people might put in that category. Misinformation is also an ever-evolving problem. Its purveyors are continually trying new tactics to seed it, so we’re constantly updating our approach to catching it.
