Almost 100M hours of video are watched every day on Facebook, and a lot of it is coming from the MENA region. Facebook and Instagram allow content creators to harness the cosmic power of video in the most personalized manner, giving them the ability to tell their personal stories to larger audiences, build meaningful personal connections and encourage conversations around the content being that’s being published every single day bringing people closer than ever before.”
