Top Facebook video creators from India

Aravinda Holla4 years ago

In the fag end of the year 2013, a small group of engineers working for Facebook were busy analyzing why most people didn’t click on videos in their news feed. Couple of reasons they zeroed in on were: Video thumbnail images weren’t interesting enough and people were impatient to wait for the videos to load. And then something interesting happened – one of the team members reminded everyone about the Daily Prophet newspaper in the Harry Potter movies. And that’s how the idea was born. Just like how the images in the newspaper come to life magically, they included autoplay of videos in the news feed. That’s how it all started.

The Video explosion on Facebook:

The changes started to work wonders for Facebook. Up until February 2014, only a quarter of all videos posted to Facebook were uploaded directly while the rest came from YouTube. But just one year later, the ratio turned upside down! By Feb 2015, 70% of Facebook videos were uploaded directly! The number of video streams per day hit a staggering 4 Billion!

Sample this – Popular News site Buzzfeed’s video views on Facebook grew 80 times within a year touching 500 million in April 2015!
