Facebook Delays Original Video Content Launch

Facebook was little changed on Monday after reports said the company’s initiative under which publishers are creating exclusive original video content for the social network has been delayed. Recode said, according to multiple sources, the initial plan was to roll out content in April, and the date was pushed back to mid-June with hopes of showing some of it off at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, but now, late July or early August is more likely.

Reports said the reasons for the delay are product-related, with issues still to be ironed out such as where the content will be housed – on its own page, or on the pages of publishers.
