Who hasn't scrolled without interest on instagram and facebook? So how do you make your video make a difference? Here's a quick overview.

How many users are there on social networks? 

Social networks are now available virtually anywhere, anytime, thanks to the development of mobile technologies. Users often have state-of-the-art phones that allow them to post attractive content and become real players in their favourite social networks via mobile applications that further enhance accessibility. 2019 social networking figures announce 3.2 billion userswhich is now 42% of the world's population! This number is therefore constantly increasing.

Should the video format be favoured on social networks? 

On Linkedin, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok, Twitter... video has become a must for both users and brands. If we take Facebook as an example, 100 million hours of video are watched by users every day. Videos are much more promoted than photos (27% are promoted, compared to 17% from the photos); but there are so many more photos than videos that this new format seems a lot more effective in reaching the public. Same finding on Instagram, where the videos have 21.2% more interactions in relation to the photos. Finally, the videos are a cool and enjoyable format. In a few seconds, the user gets the message while having a great time watching a video on the attractive, educational or entertaining content.

Does subtitling your video really make a difference?

Have you ever looked for your headphones in your apartment, just to watch a 10 second video on facebook? If that's the case, I'm sure it wasn't the most pleasant experience. A Facebook study has also shown that 80% users react negatively when a video is played with sound when they did not expect it. For this reason Facebook, followed by Instagram, Twitter, and other social networks, has enabled silent mode and auto playback. Now, on Facebook, 85% of the videos are watched silently.  The increase in video content means more accessibility needed for improve the viewing experience international audiences, deaf or hard of hearing, but also of all users. This maximizes your chances ofbring to the attention of users without needing the audio. Add subtitles to his videos, is finally expanding his community.
