Now, Facebook has more features that can make people enjoy more when they are accessing their account. One of the features is Video. You may wonder whether you are able to see who viewed your video on Facebook or not. If so, you can read the information related to Facebook below.
Checking Who Watched Your Videos on Facebook
According to the Techni Pages site, when you are hosting a live broadcast on Facebook, you are able to go to the live stream management page to be able to see who is watching the broadcast. However, if the broadcast is over, you are not able to see who watched your video while you were live streaming. You are permitted to see the number of viewers, but you are not permitted to see who watched your video.
If it is important for you to know who watches your video during the broadcast, you are able to ask your viewers to interact with you during the broadcast and ask them to leave comments on the video.
On the Fry Social website, it is also explained that you are not able to see who viewed your Facebook videos. In this platform, you are permitted to see how many people viewed your video posted on your timeline, but it does not give you further details. However, if they leave a response to your video such as a ‘like’ or some other reaction or even leave a comment in your video, you can know that they have watched your video.
On Fry Social site, there are some tips for knowing whether certain people watched your video or not. You are able to make sure that certain people watch your video by sharing the video with them on messenger, tag them, or add the video to your Facebook stories.
If you add your video to your Facebook stories, you are able to find out who watched your videos on Facebook. However, it is important for you to note that you can only add the video to your story as long as the video is short.
