Variety: Facebook is starting to get smarter about the videos it is showing its users in its news feed: The social network is starting to take implicit actions into account when weighing whether to show users certain videos. “Certain actions people take on a video, such as choosing to turn on sound or making the video full screen, are good signs they wanted to see (a) video, even if they didn’t want to like it.” Videos have become a big deal for Facebook as the company is closing in on YouTube in monthly views. In April, Facebook said that it clocked 4 billion video views every single day.
