AajTak has been instrumental in reaching out to its viewers on traditional media for many years now and this achievement shows the popularity of the channel in the digital world too. There is a constant engagement with the audience on AajTak Facebook page through Discussions, Satire, Backstage Conversations, News Capsules, Photo Blogs, Engagement Posts, TV Primetime Teasers, Primetime Promotions and a lot more.

SubratKar, Co-Founder & CEO, Vidooly commented on the developments saying, ”Over the last 6 months, we have been closely tracking the tremendous growth in viewership of videos on Facebook in India. As expected, News related content dominates all the other genres since Facebook has been playing a pivotal role in shaping up the socio political opinions in the country. We are also seeing a steady increase in independent video creators utilizing the platform, catering to both the urban and rural population. It is a very interesting time in the online video business in India as both YouTube and Facebook are attracting content creators. However; given the fact that Facebook is yet to launch monetization for creators, YouTube still is the place to be if you're looking to make a business out of it."
