The Difference Between Reels Videos Created on Facebook and Instagram
So here are the following items that are different on Facebook as opposed to Instagram:
- Instagram usernames.
Next to a Reels video from Instagram, you’ll see the author’s username listed on their Instagram account, not Facebook. You’ll also see next to the username.
You can comment on a Reels video created on Facebook right as you watch it. To leave a comment on a Reels video created on Instagram, you will need to sign in to your account on the Instagram app or instagram.com.
- “Like” tags.
You can see how many people liked the Reels video, but you can only see exactly who has “Liked” the video on the platform on which it was created.
For Replay videos created on Instagram, information about the number of plays is available. A replay counts as watching a video for at least 1 ms. Repeated views do not count. Both Facebook and Instagram count the number of plays. If you watch a Reels video on both platforms, two plays will count. Play count information is also available for most Reels videos created on Facebook.
- Author page.
When you’re watching a Reels video created on Facebook, you can click on the author’s name to see their other videos. If you’re watching a Reels video created on Instagram on Facebook, clicking on the author’s name will take you to their Instagram profile.
In addition, while watching Reels videos on Facebook, you can see other short videos.
But information about the number of views of such videos is not available.
