Well, Influencer Marketing Hub gave us a whole lotta stats on video marketing in use, how videos are being consumed on social media, and overall video trends. Now 60 stats is a doozy, so we picked out the ones we thought were the most interesting:
- This past year, ere has been an 800% increase in global watch time of ad-supported and purchased feature-length movies.
- Mobile video consumption rises by 100% every year.
- More than 70% of watch time on YouTube comes from mobile devices (and that one is straight from YouTube).
- Psychologists suggest that music can directly influence how viewers respond to your videos.
- 85% of Facebook videos are watched without sound, but 60% of Instagram Stories are watched with sound.
- Videos under two minutes long generate the most engagement.
- 37% of viewers watch videos to the end.

Facebook Groups are pretty cool (cough, cough, we may have a Group of our own you would enjoy). They bring together like-minded individuals based on common interests. Experts and novices and talk about even the most niche of topics about the most niche of subjects. Facebook has been putting out a slew of group ads to show this. DeafHoops, Drag Queen Beginners, Longboard Family, and Slow Runners Community are just some of the examples they have featured. This one puts into perspective why someone might take up a new interest and join a Group about it. Manifest good intentions out there!
