According to Business Insider, Snapchat users are responsible for 7 billion video clip views every day, 350% up from March’s 2 billion views. Impressive results, indeed, given that Facebook only reported 8 billion video views in November.
The reasons behind this surge, are multidimensional. First of all, Snapchat’s further development of Stories and Local Stories spinoffs, helped users discover video content from other users nearby. Moreover, the introduction of Discover, the content discovery feature, which features curated and editorial media, facilitated the increase of video views on the platform.

Facebook… Better take notes!
