All the major social video platforms don’t agree on how to count video views, according to a survey done by Marketing Land. For Facebook and Instagram, 3 seconds duration of watching a video is considered a view. YouTube counts a video view after a user has watched a video for 30 seconds. Although Instagram uses the same 3-second Facebook standard to count views, Instagram video also loops automatically while a video post remains on users’ screens, so instead of total total video views, the stat Instagram sends to advertisers is views by “unique users.” A Twitter video view is counted when a user clicks on a video within a tweet.
