Every day, Facebook has 1.4 billion active users who upload 300 million images and view 8 billion videos. YouTube, which receives 5 billion video views every day, is a close second. That's about 5 billion photos and 3 billion songs ever since it started in 2005.
The number of daily active users on Facebook has increased from 200 million in 2006 to over 1 billion in 2011. It is estimated that this number will reach 1.5 billion by the end of 2012.
In 2007, when Facebook launched its iPhone app, there were only 80 million iPhones worldwide. Today, there are nearly 700 million smartphones (including iPhones). Thus, almost 9 out of 10 people with access to phones can use them to connect to the Internet. This means that more than 1 billion people can log into Facebook via their phone each month.
In conclusion, there are currently about 1.4 billion people online daily. Of these, 50% are located in the United States, 13% in India, and 7% in China. The other 27 countries together account for less than 20%.
Every 60 seconds, 317,000 status changes are made, 400 new users are added, 147,000 photographs are posted, and 54,000 links are shared. Facebook receives over 8 billion daily video views on average. Eighty-five percent of Facebook users watch videos with the sound turned off. Captioned video commercials can improve video watch duration by 12 percent on average.
With approximately 700 million registered members, including nearly half of the American population, Facebook is unquestionably the leader of the pack. But, more crucially, Facebook is quickly becoming a go-to destination for consumers searching for health information.
Every day, Facebook receives over 4 billion video views. According to this source, 500 million Facebook users watch 100 million hours of video material per day. Mobile phones account for 65 percent of all views.
Video views on Facebook are a very important factor for determining social status. The more video views you have, the higher your rank will be. You can see how popular you are by looking at your friends' videos and photos on your profile page. Videos with many views will show up in your News Feed at the top of your page.
Facebook measures user engagement with its video products by viewing several parameters including: average view duration, percentage of video pages played, and percentage of people who watched the video who like Facebook. These metrics help identify which videos are most effective in attracting users and their attention span.
View count is only one way Facebook calculates social status. It also takes into account the number of comments made on videos, likes received on photos, and shares done on links inside videos. So, if you have a lot of activity on all parts of your Facebook profile, it will reflect well on your social status.
However, if you post lots of videos but don't interact with others, they won't know how valuable your content is and won't share or comment on them.
In January 2016, Facebook users viewed 100 million hours of video every day. The average time spent on Facebook every visit has increased from 20 minutes to 35 minutes. Every 60 seconds, 317,000 status changes are made, 400 new users are added, 147,000 photographs are posted, and 54,000 links are shared. This averages out to 740 updates per user per day.
In 2014, Google estimates that people checked their phones nearly three times as often as they did in 2009. If mobile usage statistics are applied to the time spent on Facebook, it would account for about two-thirds of total activity.
About 6% of internet users log in to Facebook at least once a week. That's about 1 in 16 people. It's estimated that there are more than 2 billion active Facebook accounts in existence today. Of those, it's estimated that around 50 million are used daily by 10% of all internet users.
According to a study conducted by social media management company Buffer, the average Facebook user will spend 25 minutes a day interacting with the platform. Twitter users spend about 15 minutes a day communicating with others through tweets. Instagram users enjoy themselves for 10 minutes a day looking at photos and videos uploaded by other people.
However, not all studies agree on how much time people actually spend using social media apps.
One hundred million hours. About 8 percent of videos viewed on Facebook are seen by more than one million people.
Video is growing faster than any other form of content on Facebook. In 2018, video will account for 50% of all mobile traffic. The number of videos uploaded to Facebook each month increases by about 20 million. There are now over 1 billion videos on the platform. Video games account for a third of these videos. YouTube has also become a popular place for video games because it provides additional features and tools not available on Facebook. For example, YouTube can detect when you are playing a video game using artificial intelligence (AI) and show you related videos or channels that may interest you.
Facebook's algorithm promotes certain types of videos to keep its community happy. For example, if videos with animals attract more comments than others, they will be shown in your news feed. This is why it is important to share quality content on Facebook!
In addition to being used as a social network, Facebook can also be thought of as a video website. It is estimated that 100 million people visit Facebook daily and view over 10 billion videos. That's a lot of video content!
