Facebook announced that it has been averaging more than 1 billion video views per day since June, with 65 percent of them on mobile, and brands and users that post videos will now be able to see how much of those 1 billion-plus views they were responsible for, as public videos from users and pages will now display view counts.
Bluetooth-speaker manufacturer Jam Wireless Audio may have been one of the first brands to tap the new Hyperlapse time-lapse video application from Instagram for marketing purposes, but it now has plenty of company, as the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network shared some more examples in a post on the Instagram for Business blog.
The 2014 National Football League season kicked off Thursday night, with the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks routing the visiting Green Bay Packers, 36-16. Facebook said the opening game resulted in nearly 15 million interactions (posts, comments and likes) from more than 8.5 million users.
The latest update to Facebook’s Slingshot photo- and video-sharing application eliminated the app’s most prominent and most controversial feature, as users can now sling their shots as locked or unlocked, eliminating the need for recipients to sling their own shots before viewing the shots they receive.
