We've all heard it: we should be creating a lot more video. However, do we know why we should be doing it? Let's look at the numbers.

Looking for an outstanding video tool? Let us show you Storykit.

Many of us have probably noted that over half a billion people watch video on Facebook every day (which adds up to over 8 billion video views every day, on Facebook alone). Or that people are watching video on Youtube over one billion hours a day.  These numbers are immense, but still – does this actually mean anything to me and my brand? Well, it does and there are a lot more numbers that prove this.


 A well-cited survey by Cisco from 2017 predicted that 80% of all Internet traffic would consist of video streams in 2019. 


According to a report from Tubular Insights, the number of commercial video content shown on Facebook has increased by 258% and by 99% on Youtube since 2017.
