Facebook Watch platform creates awareness amongst youth about side-effects of technology
BE SAFE is an endeavour to educate viewers and today’s youth about the various side-effects of the ever-growing world of technology around us.
Each of us is susceptible to a lot of things lurking around that we are not aware of in the least. By means of these short videos, #BeSafe does not only mean to entertain, but also create widespread awareness about topics that concern one and all.
Online scams, bank transactions, love gone wrong, suspicious links, fraud.... and many such things that affect each one of us. The need of the hour is to #BeSafe.
Facebook Watch is built on the notion that watching videos can help users’ connect more deeply with people, instead of being a passive or solitary experience.
Users have virtually unlimited ways — comments, shares, reactions, polls, Groups, messages, Watch Parties, and more — to connect with people around the videos you love.
We know that people have a range of video offerings available to them, but Watch is more than just library of videos — it’s a place where people can follow video creators they care about, start conversations about videos with friends, and build communities of fans who share their interests.
Watching videos has always been a social experience, but as people increasingly watch videos online, it has become more solitary.
With Facebook Watch, we set out to demonstrate what it looks like to build deep bonds through watching online video, instead of just having a passive viewing experience.
The 'Watch' experience is personalised - organised around what users and their friends and communities are watching
The makers of SIT, Mohit Hussein & Chhavi Mittal, present edutainment videos based on true events.
Each episode kicks off with a story that gets summed with the show's presenter, actor Iqbal Khan giving tips to deal better with similar situations to avert any negative outcome.
The storyline of the show draws the viewers into the story with the focus being on the end emphasis of driving awareness around practical tips and platform tools that can help people.
