“Since we launched in the US in 2016, we have experienced tremendous growth with our core audience,” Riemens continues. “We have seen a shift as brands now seek to engage the highly sought after Gen Z demographic, and there’s been an increased demand for content targeting this audience, which is something we’ve been successful in creating for some time. Our content has been specifically developed to meet the needs of Gen Z in response to what they’re searching for. Content that champions social justice, is reflective of their global outlook and feeds their desire to make a positive mark on the world.”

The focus is on creating stories that drive engagement and facilitate community building. Facebook Watch means we use our content to evolve and grow our community and be a part of the conversation around issues that matter to Generation Zoomin. It also presents an exciting opportunity for our creators as we look to build serialized content with them and develop appointment viewing with our audience.”
