Facebook introduces short video, but can’t Stop TikTok’s Growth
Facebook is trying a new ‘Short Videos’ element inside its application in a bid to take advantage of the TikTok boycott in India and proposed boycott in the US. This new element appears in the News Feed and works in the comparative swipe up way as was famous on TikTok. Facebook as of late presented Instagram Reels as its solution to TikTok’s notoriety, and presently it hopes to bring a similar component into Facebook also. We aren’t certain with regards to the extent of testing for this component, yet we had the option to spot it on the most recent form of Facebook on an Android gadget.
Online media master Matt Navarra initially tweeted that the web-based media goliath is trying this new ‘Short Videos’ element inside the Facebook application. This component is basically the same as TikTok’s style of video design including the swipe-up look for the next video. We had the option to detect this component in our Facebook application also and it is by all accounts accessible for Indian clients generally. Notwithstanding, it may not be accessible for all clients in India and Facebook may simply be trying it with a subset of clients prior to carrying it out monetarily.
When requested a remark, a Facebook representative said through email: “We’re continually trying new innovative instruments so we can find out with regards to how individuals need to communicate their thoughts. Short structure recordings are amazingly well known and we are taking a gander at better approaches to give this experience to individuals to associate, make an offer on Facebook.”

This new ‘Short Videos’ element comes a long time after Facebook presented Instagram Reels as its response to the TikTok boycott in India. The application is currently viewing a boycott in the US too, and makers on the TikTok stage should escape to different media to keep making content and hoarding supporters. Facebook is seeming to be that new home for these makers, and a large group of Indian makers have as of now started making content on Instagram Reels and may now cross-post it on Facebook also.
