Calif. – Facebook’s 500 million
users are now watching more than 2 billion videos on the site every month, NewTeeVee
reported, citing figures from a Facebook spokesperson. Facebook users are uploading
more than 20 million videos to the social network each month, up from about 12
million last March.
The report notes that Facebook made it possible for iPhone
users to upload video directly to their profiles last summer.
The site counted
41.3 million video viewers in the U.S. during the month of April, on
par with Vevo and Hulu but still trailing far behind market leader YouTube.
