In November 2012, Photos generated 53% more likes than other posts but the result is still unexpected as most people probably expect photos to outperform text-only posts.

In September 2015, Facebook started allowing Video profiles, so Video is set to grow further.

After we saw the stats, Aussie Business Connect immediately started a search for an inexpensive video library with enough variety to support a diversity of clients in Sydney. We found Videoblocks and we liked the story, so we signed up.

Videoblocks was started by Joel Holland who pooled his savings, purchased professional video equipment and travelled around the US, visiting 30 US cities shooting video, editing in his hotel room and selling the clips to pay for the next plane ticket and hotel room.

Aussie Business Connect has secured access to Videoblocks, which is offering large discounts to grow rapidly.
