A lot has changed in the last year, in terms of how people share video on social media. It’s not only because of the rise of live-video on Periscope, Meerkat, and more recently Facebook and YouTube, but also because of the shifting attitudes to online video – Overall, we find that these attitudes are still shifting and although there are no “clear winners”, Facebook seems to be flying past its competitors – according to a recent study.

The study conducted by Philo Media found that Facebook definitely has an edge. Among all respondents, Facebook has become the favoured source for video for over 37% of them. Things change slightly when looking at millennials, with over 35% reporting that YouTube is their preferred source. Also, nearly 7% of Generation X users preferred Twitter for video – which is puzzling. However, 63.5% ranked Facebook as their choice of platform for video sharing.
