The 2018 Facebook August Moments video is now making its way out to users worldwide on Android and iOS devices, as well as desktop…
Facebook is now in releasing its 2018 August Moments video. And, in keeping with the last edition for July, it’s not appearing in users’ News Feeds. Instead, it’s available in the Memories section of the site.
2018 Facebook August Moments Video Rolls Out to Android, iOS, and the Web
As with recent previous memories collections, the 2018 Facebook August Moments video comes at a time when the social network is battling against three big negative forces. First, it continues to suffer from “context collapse,” or a lack of original content broadcasting. (This means users simply aren’t sharing as much as they did previously.)
Second, North American user growth has seemingly plateaued. In fact, in the last few months, U.S. Instagram usage increased enough to near parity of Facebook on Android, according to recent data from Similar Web.
Third, recent scandals have taken their toll on the platform. The Pew Research Center released a poll regarding Facebook usage. The center polled 4,594 adults in the United States. A full 54 percent of respondents say they adjusted their privacy settings. Meanwhile, 42 percent have taken leave from the site for the past several weeks. And 26 percent reported deleting the app from their phones. Overall, 74 percent of participants say they’ve taken at least one of these action over the past twelve months.
This year, the social network has already served up a Facebook February Moments video, then a March Moments video, followed by an April Moments video. Facebook also curated a May Moments video. Last to circulate was the 2018 July Memories photo collage.
How to Get the 2018 Facebook August Moments Video
To get the 2018 Facebook August Moments video, simply open the app on Android or iOS, or visit the desktop site. Then, navigate to the Memories bookmark. If available, it will appear at the very bottom. If it is not there, simply check back periodically over the next several days. It’s currently rolling out, so not all users will see it immediately. (Please note that Facebook only serves its collections spontaneously.)
