Will videos be the face of Facebook five years down the line?
Speaking at Fortune‘s Most Powerful Women International Summit in London, Mendelsohn said that in five years time, the social media platform will probably be ‘all video’.
New Delhi: Social media giant Facebook is a world within a world, wherein people from across the globe can connect and expand their reach.
The previous year and a half is evidence that Facebook has a certain inclination toward content that contains videos.
This propensity for videos was confirmed, when Facebook's EMEA vice president, Nicola Mendelsohn, made it clear that the social network plans to set its future in videos as well.
Speaking at Fortune‘s Most Powerful Women International Summit in London, she said that in five years time, the social media platform will probably be ‘all video’.
Why the sudden swerve? As Mendelsohn explained, there has been a year-on-year decline in text posts and a distinct rise in photos and videos shared through its service in recent times.
It's nice to know that the world is becoming more advanced and accepting change, however, the question still stands whether or not this will be a good idea?
For one thing, writing allows an individual's thoughts flow freely and wander. Secondly, it is an added bonus that while writing, you can edit your words before publishing them. For people who love to write, these small things are undoubtedly no less than a luxury.
But then again, five years is a long time. Who knows how things might end up by then? Prepare yourselves for a new Facebook in five years!
