Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will feature mostly videos in the next five years.
During Facebook's annual F8 developer conference in San Francisco, the billionaire revealed that how Facebook is going to change in the next few years.
In Facebook's early days, users shared primarily text content, Zuckerberg told the audience. Today, they share mostly photos. "Fast forward five years, it's going to be video," he said. "If you look out even further, it will be more immersive content like AR and VR." [THR]
The announcement for more video content comes days after the tech-giant announced that they will soon start hosting news-site content on their website.
With 1.4 billion users, the social media site has become a vital source of traffic for publishers looking to reach an increasingly fragmented audience glued to smartphones. In recent months, Facebook has been quietly holding talks with at least half a dozen media companies about hosting their content inside Facebook rather than making users tap a link to go to an external site.

At the end of the day, Facebook is slowly taking over the Internet positioning itself in a place where the only way you can find information, watch videos, or read the news will be through Facebook.
