Why go Live? Facebook’s head of video Fidji Simo will tell Disrupt NY

TechCrunch TechCrunch 21/04/2016 Josh Constine

How will Facebook video change the physics of news publishing, app downloads, commerce, and what we point our phones at? Find out a TechCrunch Disrupt NY May 9th-11th when Facebook’s head of video Fidji Simo joins us on stage for a fireside chat.

By now, Facebook’s likely hit 10 billion video views per day. In a few short years, it became an 800-lb gorilla big enough to stand tall against YouTube and Snapchat. And with videos getting so much visibility in the News Feed, Facebook video has created a ripple effect that impacts every type of business.

At Disrupt NY, we’ll ask Simo what we should expect next from Facebook Video, how companies can adapt, and why Facebook is betting so big on Live broadcasting.

What’s working and what’s not for video publishers on Facebook?

Will Facebook Video widen the rift between big brands with huge budgets for video and small businesses who don’t know where to start?

How will video ads for apps bring let great developers thrive and push crappy apps off the top charts?

And can Facebook become a video destination, not just a serendipitous channel for discovery?

Our Facebook expert Josh Constine (hey that’s me) will get you the answers at Disrupt NY.

Tickets are still available. Grab them here.
