YouTube, look out for Facebook


When 2014 kicked off, YouTube was on top of the game for online video.

You may recall earlier this year, Facebook acquired LiveRail. This is proving to be money well spent.

Anyone who has used Facebook lately is all too familiar with the auto-playing videos in their timeline. As the Content Standard reports, this feature has led to a 50% increase in the shares for video posts. Socialbakers predict that by the end of the year, more people will be uploading videos to Facebook than YouTube.

What is your take on Socialbakers' theory? Which strategy do you prefer? Do you post videos to Facebook, YouTube or both?
