V30: 3.4 million / ER30: 1.4x Key Trend/Video: Any brand which focuses on animals is, of course, going to be a hit with audiences on Facebook, as the platform’s users will likely never tire of watching, sharing, and engaging with content which features cute, compelling creatures. V30: 1.7 million / ER30: 0.9x Key Trend/Video: As noted in the top Facebook publishers leaderboard, YouTube creator Jake Boys skyrocketed up the ranks in June to land on that leaderboard as well as the cross-platform one. The creator’s method of re-posting viral content and leaving some of his own short thoughts on the content has generated him billions of views in just weeks, likely because his audience connects more deeply with him as he reveals more of his personality based on which clips he chooses to re-post, such as this one from the movie 40-Year-Old Virgin which has 23 million views: Tasty: 1.2B Video Views Primary Source of Views: Facebook at 1B.

Key Trend/Video: The LADbible is almost always at the top of the cross-platform leaderboards, but how does the brand get there? For starters, nearly 101 million of all of LADbible’s June views came from one Facebook video in particular, which features a bride and groom playing the “Mr. & Mrs.” newlywed quiz. The clip not only reveals how little the couple seems to agree on their answers, but also how much audiences seemed to enjoy engaging with such hilarious content, as the video generated more than 1.1 million shares, 1.1 million likes, and 289,000 comments.
