Future of video on Facebook

Video on the Facebook platform isn’t going away, but it isn’t going stay the same either. Because Facebook controls the platform, it has the ability to push new technologies, experiences and other business objectives. Chances are that we’ll see old video formats mutate and perhaps see the creation of entirely new types of storytelling.
