Only Facebook Videos Likely To Be Seen In 5 Years

Rate this post

Apparently Facebook videos must be doing extremely well and that could be the reason for Facebook to have ‘all videos’ in the next five years.

At Fortune’s Most Powerful Women International Summit in London on Tuesday, Nicola Mendelsohn, VP of Facebook for operations in Africa, Middle East, and Europe, said

Facebook will be probably all video.

Mendelsohn added that video is “the best way to tell stories in this world” and “helps us to digest much more information.”facebook1

Facebook has been actively decreasing its efforts on text and putting its all efforts into video with numerous recent features and updates. This is evident from Facebook Live that gained immense popularity since its opening to public this year. Along with Mark Zuckerberg’s recent video of a conversation with astronauts on the International Space Station, there are many attention-grabbing videos that have gone up on Facebook Live.

Understanding the scenario of moving photos, GIFs, and images have become increasingly popular replacements for text reactions or messages. Facebook with a new feature has responded by allowing users to post videos as comments on their social sites.

Facebook is one of the first places on the web to host 360-degree photos and videos and with the introduction of virtual reality media, there will be new non-text ways to share things on FB.

There has been a year-on-year (Y-O-Y) decline of text and video-based communications have continued to grow.

Mendelsohn said Facebook would ‘definitely’ be mobile, and would ‘probably’ be ‘all video’ five years from now. Overseeing 433 million users in her region, she said Facebook Live is “a bigger faster phenomenon” than expected by the company.

If I was having a bet, it’d be video, video, video.

According to Fortune reports, users currently watch an average 100 million hours of video on Facebook mobile in a day. In just one year, the daily views have increased from 1 billion to 8 billion.
