They’re like engagement photos, but, you know… video
Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, our virtual world has been growing faster than ever. With that, an insatiable craving for new and better content has emerged. Perpetuating the video takeover, TikTok’s quick rise to the top has forced other platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook to elevate their game. More video capabilities and algorithm-based content preferences push video content to the forefront of social media (dexerto).
In the past, engagement shoots were captured only through photographs, but recently there has been an increase in video engagement shoots. Video presence has been rapidly increasing on social media platforms over the years. This year, Instagram has reported a 53% increase in video engagements compared to a 46.4% increase in photos (newswhip).
