Facebook to add view counts
The new look video will now add a new view counter so that the narcissists can find out their "digital reach" or some such bollocks.
The company claims that the soon-to-be-rolled-out feature will allow both those who have posted the video as well as those who are viewing it to see how many people have viewed a particular clip. The view counts will be displayed next to the ‘like’ and ‘comment’ area.
This is similar to the view counter on Vine, where people find out quite quickly how unpopular they are and just how few people are looking at their videos, for maximum despondency.
Facebook is also reportedly testing another feature on mobile that will suggest related videos after users finish watching a clip.
They've not said anything about fixing the autoplay videos, which is running up needless bills and gobbling data where you're away from a WiFi connection, but there you go.
