Facebook is testing a new feature, dubbed Suggested Videos, which -- as its name suggests -- is designed to make it easier for users to access videos that might be of interest to them.

The feature would suggest videos based on what you're currently watching, in the manner of YouTube. It is currently only being offered to select iPhone-based Facebook users, although Android support is set to be available in the coming months.

Suggested Videos is not only designed to enhance the Facebook user experience, it is also part of a very deliberate business strategy to push video, an important part of the modern online and social media experience. The feature would also enable Facebook to make more money because the feeds would include video ads -- revenue from the ad views would be split between Facebook, media companies and content creators.
