 3/4 mobile traffic will be video by 2020, predicts Cisco in a report on global mobile traffic last year.


Mark Zuckerberg said Facebook will be almost a video company within five years.


What is the magic of video and native video?

Live on videos


Young generation (young generation born after 1995) watch videos on smartphones the most.

74% people watch videos on smartphones for over half an hour and 1/6 for over two hours.



Sharethrough’s survey on Gen Z (18-21) last year found, although 52% still watch TV, more people (71%) watch videos on mobile devices. Today’s young generation lives on smartphones and native ad is the only ad format that respects users of mobile devices.

Social media is the force behind

Such high consumption of video is driven by social platforms

In the same survey, over half Gen Z users said they watch videos on Facebook, YouTube or Snapchat every day. Unlike YouTube, these social platforms abandoned traditional disturbing ad models. Instead, they use native ads and reshape users’ perception and expectation on what are good ad experiences.


The rise of social media makes feeds the dominant consumption experience.

91% millennials find and consume contents in feeds.


Feeds create a whole generation of loyal consumers who slips over endless feeds, while native ad is the only appropriate ad form.
