Isn’t video ruling the content world? Whether it is social media, educational sites, or marketing campaigns, videos are becoming the most sought-after form of content in the world. And due to this immense popularity of videos, people like to share and watch them with their friends and family.
Do you know that according to stats revealed by Facebook itself, over 400 million users spend one minute on the video platforms of social networks? And over 75 million users do it every day. And these 75 million people spend more than an average of 20 minutes each day on Facebook Watch. This popularity indicates that even if you have a subscription to Spectrum TV choice, you will still crave videos on Facebook!
The Popularity of Facebook Videos
The term “viral video” was first introduced for Facebook videos. Today, videos on Facebook are from every category. They are about personal moments, adventures, memes, makeup tutorials, cooking delicious meals, news, sports, and what not! You can simply type a category or a few words relating to what interests you and you will see a whole list of videos. They will be enough to provide you good entertainment for hours.
When we like a video, it is almost a reflex action to share it with your friends and family. Tagging and sending links is mainstream. Watching it together would be much more enjoyable. For instance, I love watching America’s Got Talent and The Voice auditions on Facebook. Since I don’t have time to catch the shows live on TV, I watch them on Facebook. And then I feel like sharing it with my family and friends.
But crowding around a smartphone or a laptop does not help. These screens are small and everyone cannot view them easily or enjoy them as they should be. Personally, I prefer to play my favorite videos on my TV and watch them together with my family or friends. Nothing beats that! So let’s talk about beaming these to your TV screen and have the ultimate experience of watching them with others.
