What Counts As a Video View on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapc

Posted by @DanHinmon, Tue, Feb 7 9:00am

When it comes to video, what does “success” really mean? And how do you know if your videos are performing well on social media?

Measuring the success of your video content can be a difficult task. Especially as almost every platform has a range of features and metrics. For example, some platforms count a video view as three seconds, others count a view as soon as you open a video. Some platforms auto-play videos, others don’t. Some channels have limits of 60 seconds for video and on others it’s unlimited.

This post breaks down video metrics across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat to give you a definitive guide to what you can measure on each platform, how you can measure it and importantly what each metric means.
