Online sex video for mobile

Facebook has become “synonymous with mobile,” Carolyn Everson, Facebook’s vice president of global marketing solutions, said at a recent investor conference.

“I think that the next frontier is becoming synonymous with mobile video.” To reach that frontier, Facebook is plowing resources into its video products at a rate that has executives buzzing at the television networks that are steadily losing ad spending to the Internet, and at the agencies that broker that spending.

Above all, the push is raising questions for Google’s You Tube, the big kahuna of online video for the past decade, which for the first time faces a competitor that can match its reach.

Facebook’s mission-driven executives, famous for downplaying any profit motive, argue that the video push is not about money or getting a competitive edge—it’s about giving users what they want and connecting them to the content that matters.

But by lunchtime, it had racked up 7 million Facebook “impressions,” or people who saw it in their Facebook News Feed. “Oh, my God, these are all going to pop,” he thought.

Cox, on the other hand, is excited to talk about video.

Everything is rad in “Awesome Town,” the conference room in which Facebook chief product officer Chris Cox holds his meetings.

Adorned with gray mid-century furniture and neon-colored pillows, it is distinctly not an office, I’m told, because nobody at Facebook has an office.

The company’s recent video improvements will likely push those numbers even higher.

And while the surge will help the social network do even more to entertain bored millennials, there is also big money at stake.
