You read that right. According to statistics given exclusively to Newteevee.com by a Facebook spokesperson, about 20 million videos are uploaded to the social networking site every month and two billion videos are watched by its users.
The full report mentions that the number of video production company uploads to Facebook has grown substantially over the past year:
Last March, Facebook said that it received on average 415,000 video uploads a day, or about 12 million a month, 40 percent of which came directly from webcams.
Additionally, the Newteevee.com report expects that number to increase as more video-ready mobile devices hit the market, and even Facebook released an update to their iPhone app last summer allowing users to upload video.
Finally, the growth of Facebook as a video-watching platform was confirmed when it made ComScore’s top five sites for video:
The social networking site crept into comScore?s Video Metrix top five sites for video viewers in April, with 41.3 million U.S. uniques over the course of the month. While it still lags industry heavyweight YouTube in terms of viewers, the number of users watching video on the site rank it alongside Vevo and Fox Interactive ? and ahead of Hulu. But while it ranks favorably in terms of the number of users watching video on the site, the average number of videos watched per viewer ? 5.6, according to comScore ? is still pretty low compared to YouTube (96) or Hulu (24.7).
