Video is first! This is what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said to all of his shareholders in a recent earnings call, “Ten years ago, most of what we shared and consumed online was text. Now it’s photos, and soon most of it will be video. We see a world that is video first with video at the heart of all our apps and services.”

Our friends at Animoto surveyed over 1,000 social media consumers and over 500 social media marketers to research how video is making a tremendous impact in today’s video boom age. How are people watching videos? And what are social marketers doing to reach viewers?

The following is a small take from the information contained in the infographic below.

Over 64% of the people surveyed say viewing a marketing video on Facebook has influenced a purchase decision in the thirty-daysClick To Tweet.

92% of the marketing people surveyed make videos with assets they already have.

81% of marketers are optimizing their social videos for mobile viewership, including 39% that are creating a square or vertical videos.

Businesses felt the most confident reaching their customers with video on YouTube and Facebook. The most viewed channels for watching videos are Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram Stories.
