It’s pretty well known that video is the best performing content type on pretty much every social platform, with many of the most popular networks embracing and fully engaging with this type of content. Facebook introduced video content originally in 2007, with the introduction of Facebook Live in 2015. Instagram introduced the ability to upload video content in 2013, with the introduction of ‘stories’ in 2016, whilst users have been uploading video content to YouTube since 2005.

As marketers, keeping on top of trends and social movement is obviously key, and it’s probably not escaped anybody (marketer or not) that visual content has never been more popular! This obviously presents a massive opportunity for organisations to use video platforms to get in front of a large, captivated audience. YouTube dominates as a social network for video content… and with the recent launch of YouTube Stories, it shows no signs of slowing down.
