Recent internal data from Meta has revealed that Reels engagement has driven a significant increase in time spent, on both Facebook and Instagram. However, at the same time, the creation of original content, in both apps, has been decreasing.

As a result, while users are hanging out and watching more videos in each app, they haven’t been posting as much of their own original content, which lowers the overall retention of the platforms.

In addition, Meta is also trying to introduce new tools to assist creators to create their online communities, such as giving more personal information to your most active followers and pre-written messages to thank them for their support.
