It seems the industry just can’t stop talking about the increasing statistics happening in the online video market space. Our goal is to bring all those amazing numbers to you in one place. Starting with Facebook.
Did you know that 2 billion videos are viewed each month on Facebook? Never underestimate the power of social media. Word of mouth is still the best way to spread information, technology is just the tool.
Another incredible statistic: According to comScore live streaming video has increased over 600% in the past year. That’s 1.4 billion more minutes people are watching video online! HD and/or better quality video might have had something to do with that number but companies have also gotten smarter about how to publish this content; making it a better user experience. If you build it, the users will come.
Last but not least, were you aware that internet users in the US watched online video for an average of 15.1 hours per viewer during the month of October? That breaks down to 15.4 billion monthly video viewing sessions! Is it the change in the weather or ’tis it just the season for video?
