Facebook Watch Party
Why not host your own Awards of Excellence Facebook Watch Party on your club page?
Staying connected, active, and engaged has never more important! Facebook has a great feature called “Watch Party” that allows you to stay connected safely whilst learning and having fun.
Facebook Watch Party allows you to schedule and watch with your members from anywhere as a shared viewing experience. Members can then watch and comment on Facebook videos in real time. All this interaction and co-watching of the video happens on a single screen of Facebook through your Facebook page.
How does it work?
Similar to real-life parties, the host invites people to watch videos together in Facebook Watch Party. The host is the one who creates a party. Once you create a Watch Party, you will be able to view other members and have a discussion with them about the video. The participants can then react and add real-time comments on the video.
Please click here for information on how to create a Watch Party on Facebook.
