In 2013, Facebook tried to buy off Snapchat for $3 billion
Snapchat has all the right to be sassy as they now reach 6 billion video views per day, a high number considering they operate mainly as an app on phones. They trail behind Facebook who garners 8 billion views for its videos daily according to Financial Times.
In 2013, Facebook tried to buy off Snapchat for $3 billion which the latter snubbed, and today they're probably more than happy that they did. Today, video content advertising is one of the main lifeblood of social media companies and it's definitely making Snapchat alive and kicking. With increased advertisers and media partnerships for the photo messenger app, they are reported earlier this year to at least earn up to $19 billion out of this alone.
They tripled their views from May which was only 2 billion
This 6 billion views is definitely an awesome feat for the company since it marks that they tripled their views from May which was only 2 billion. Today, generating around 75 percent of what Facebook can from their videos, Snapchat seems to be on a roll.
Although counting views for different platforms may vary, Facebook counts it as soon as you're past three seconds while Snapchat can count it for millisecond. But as they say, numbers don't lie, and a view is a view.
Snapchat rejoices with this as it shows the impact of the changes they've made in order to make their service better. Now, with more features and street cred, Snapchat will continue emerging as one of the contenders for social media networks preferred by users and advertisers.
