God help us, Facebook is bringing back the Real World

Nested in the new "Watch" tab in the Facebook app, the platform has managed to attract moderate attention, but in order to turn into the popular video platform that the company is hoping for, it's going to need a harder push. As the first original reality series on TV, it broke new ground being the first show to tackle culturally resonant stories that included HIV/AIDS, race, mental health, homophobia, addiction, and more. In addition to a new season for USA audiences, Facebook Watch and MTV Studios are also developing native productions in Thailand and Mexico. Facebook's press materials reminded me that The Real World did take TV to uncharted territories, such as televising the first same-sex commitment ceremony. We now know where at least one of these reboots is ending up.

It opens with a powerful reminder of what The Real World once was: a show that gathered together different people and had them live their lives together.

The social media platform will also try to connect fans to participants in the show with Facebook Live, watch parties and other innovations.

Rival social network Snapchat last week announced that it was also creating original series, while Twitter were also on the French Riviera to trumpet how it was working with 150 major news, sports and entertainment organisations on video content. That's right: you can now play God with the Real World contestants.

Facebook Watch is widening its interactive game-show format Confetti internationally, and it will launch a program called The World's Most Amazing Dog, a worldwide interactive competition series in partnership with animal-video publisher The Dodo.

The three new seasons will be filmed in Mexico, Thailand and the United States respectively, and will incorporate interactive elements via Facebook's platform that will "empower fans to shape the action" according to a press release from the two companies.

MTV president Chris McCarthy called the Facebook reboot an "opportunity to impact culture and create a new genre of television all over again".
