Facebook’s Branded Content Tool Is A Must-Use For Brands

Branded content utilizes content as a way to promote or advertise for a brand. Branded content can represent a variety of marketing materials ranging from white papers, online YouTube videos, blog posts, and Instagram photos. Today, branded content is everywhere. The rise of social media and influencer marketing has made it impossible for brands to avoid branded content. Moreover, the recent FTC crackdown on branded content has revealed many related consumer issues such as transparency.

Increased attention to branded content has led brands and advertising platforms, especially social media websites, to be more cognizant of ethical consumer advertising practices, especially in influencer marketing. Specifically, brands and their partners need to include proper disclosure techniques. Facebook, in particular, has revamped its website and advertising tools for brands and their partners to give marketers a tool for their branded content.

Top 30 Facebook Live Videos of 2016

For the latest news and trends on top YouTubers, Instagrammers, Facebook stars, bloggers, & Snapchatters, subscribe to our industry digest newsletter!

In 2016, live video streaming has become one of the dominant trends and preferred social media format/content for platforms, content creators, and consumers. Global market research firm MarketsandMarkets projects that the entire live video streaming industry will be worth over $70B by 2021, a 130% percent change for 2016's $30B. Periscope's initial user growth and popularity (the now Twitter-owned live streaming platform added more than 1 million users within its first 10 days) paved the way for both veteran social media platforms including YouTube, Facebook, and Facebook-owned Instagram and upstart social media apps (e.g. Musical.ly's standalone live streaming app, Live.ly) to double-down on their live video streaming offerings.

Facebook for 2016 has chosen to focus heavily on "all things video" including the development of their video platform, live streaming capabilities, and video messaging. Over the summer, Facebook spurred growth of their video properties by paying social media influencers, publishers, and celebrities over $50M to use and experiment with Facebook Video and Facebook Live.

As such, many of 2016's biggest and memorable moments have been shared on Facebook Live. Here are the top 30, most viral Facebook Live videos—which ones have you seen and are your favorites?

How Much Time Do We Spend On Social Media?

How Much Time Do We Spend On Social Media

How Much Time Do People Spend On Social Media? [Infographic]

Social media advertising spend is projected to reach nearly $36B globally by 2017 with U.S. and Canada spending the most and eclipsing $12.5B in 2016 (eMarketer). In 2015, time spent on mobile apps (not necessarily social media mobile apps, but including) exceeded time spent watching TV for U.S. consumers (TechCrunch). Growth on many of the top social media platforms continues to rise as each network rolls out new features and functionalities to better compete for users' daily time and engagement (e.g. Facebook Video & Live, Snapchat Spectacles, Instagram Stories, etc.).

As such, the amount of people using social is not only increasing, but is accompanied by how much time people are spending each day on social media. Just on Facebook's suite of owned apps along (Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger; excludes WhatsApp), its users are spending an average of 50 minutes each day. In order to see how much the average person will ultimately spend on social media, we calculated the time spent across today's most popular social media platforms and projected this figure across an entire lifetime.

What Is Vlogging And How Is It Shaping Digital Media? 

From 2012 to 2016, worldwide digital video viewers have grown from 372 million to nearly 700, an increase of 87% (eMarketer). Digital video time spent has also risen sharply by 120% from 26 minutes per day to nearly an hour (fueled largely by mobile which has overtaken desktop viewing).

As viewing habits skewer increasingly towards online video, certain types of video content are proving to be in demand and popular with audiences. Vlogs—short for "video blogs"—have become one of the most popular types of digital video content featuring vloggers ("video bloggers") who candidly capture and share their lives.

Vlogging (short for "video blogging") is the daily practice of capturing and sharing vlogs characteristically featuring a vlogger shooting themselves at arm's length throughout their everyday activities.
