There has been an insane impact on the media world by the new social platform TikTok not only on the world but on social platforms themselves. Its like every time you turn around, Facebook and Instagram, and coming up with new ways to compete with TikTok. What TikTok is, is a short video, up to 1-minute, of trending dances, voiceovers, etc. It’s crazy how these short videos have completely taken society by storm. Over the last few months, we’ve been discussing the Future of TikTok and Tourism, Instagram Reels, and Google Shorts. It seems that every social platform is coming up with their own form of short-videos.
Most recently, Facebook is starting to roll out short-videos tests within its Indian population due to the TikTok ban there. This is an insanely smart decision since before the TikTok ban in India, they were the largest user market outside of China. Facebook Short Videos can be uploaded with up to 26-seconds of content. Any videos uploaded longer can be trimmed manually. Like TikTok, you can add text overlay on your videos.
Out of all the platforms that have created their own short-video feature, Facebook is definitely one to watch out for.
