1. What is Facebook Reels?

Facebook Reels is a tool similar to Tiktok that allows users to shoot and share short videos with a maximum duration of 60 seconds. Although it was launched in late 2021, it wasn’t officially introduced in Vietnam until February 2022 and quickly became an extremely attractive entertainment trend for millions of users.

In addition, Facebook and Instagram are linked, so users can easily share videos from Instagram to Facebook to create Reels.

2. Popular video topics on Facebook Reels

Content creators are currently rushing to find topics that attract viewers, as Facebook Reels will automatically suggest the most impressive videos to users on their news feed. Some popular topics include:

2.1. News compilation videos

The demand for information updates from users has never been “cold”, so the trend of short news compilation videos always attracts a lot of attention. If you have the ability to edit accurate, complete, and concise information, your channel will attract a large number of interested viewers.

2.2. Product reviews

The trend of product reviews is growing stronger, especially in the cosmetics and fashion industry. Users tend to want to learn about a product before deciding to purchase it. Be the one to “embrace” this trend, experience and introduce them to the best and highest quality products to attract a huge audience!

2.3. Funny and entertaining videos

The entertainment demand of Facebook users is very high, so if you want to grab attention, consider pursuing funny and highly relaxing videos. However, to create these videos, you need to have a sense of humor and acting skills. Otherwise, your channel will be considered “bland” and unattractive.

2.4. Challenge videos/Duets

This video topic is widely embraced because of its interesting nature. If you are someone who likes challenges and often comes up with “quirky ideas,” try making this type of video, and you will definitely have a lot of people who want to watch them!
