Beyond statistics we wanted to detail in this blog post how people consume video on both platform and how they are different.
A growing number of Social Media Manager have the same question, which platform should I use to post my videos?
Active ou Passive?
On Youtube finding a content is the result of an active search, this is a difference with Facebook, due mostly to the wall that let users in a more passive position, people tend to consume content published by brand or friends they already follow and wait for new content to show up.
On Facebook, videos work with Autoplay, that created a new form of engagement, a minimal engagement when people watch video without even turning the sound on, a total different way to consume video, opposed to behavior on Youtube.
Facebook and/or Youtube?
While the two giants are on the battlefield, and even if we just saw consumption can be very different on Facebook and Youtube, do you really have to chose between mum and dad?
Social Media Managers are asking themself, where will I get the best audience? How many people will I reach on Facebook or Youtube? Our advice is to cumulate audience, post your videos on all platform, Facebook, Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo. You do not have to chose, you will only need to make that choice when it comes to embeded content on your website, blog or links that you use in your newsletters.
