Mark Zuckerberg calls (Facebook) a “video-first” platform
Facebook is making a major push into video. I think this is a significant opportunity for digital content makers and puts YouTube on the defensive. Google made a terrible mistake with its Google Plus social network when it should have been working on socializing YouTube. After all, many of YouTube videos are distributed over Facebook. And since Facebook owns the means of distribution it is a perfect opportunity for them to replace YouTube.
    Mark Zuckerberg goes on to call video “a mega trend.” As I’ve said before, I feel video will become the main way we use the internet. Currently, we do a lot of reading on the web. The problem with that is the overwhelming majority of people in the world don’t like to read. Whereas everyone likes to watch videos.
