But by lunchtime, it had racked up 7 million Facebook “impressions,” or people who saw it in their Facebook News Feed. “Oh, my God, these are all going to pop,” he thought.By the time he finished eating, it had added another million. “It’s just a matter of time.” He had a second thought: “Our business is going to double.” In recent months that kind of “oh, my God” moment has occurred for video creators around the world.He’s excited to talk about any Facebook product, really, and about the company’s mission to “make the world more open and connected.” An Atlanta native who speaks with impassioned sincerity, Cox dropped out of a master’s program at Stanford to join Facebook in its very early days as a software engineer and became vice president of product in 2008.Any cynical questions from a business reporter, like “Is Facebook video a play for TV ad dollars? ,” are quickly countered with the Mission: making the world more open and connected.In February 2014, only a quarter of all videos posted to Facebook were uploaded directly to the network, while the rest came from You Tube (GOOG) or other video sites, according to analytics company Socialbakers.By a year later, the ratio had flipped: 70% of Facebook’s videos were uploaded directly.These may sound like minor technical distinctions, but tiny changes make a huge difference when you’ve got 1.4 billion monthly active users.Facebook and its subsidiary Instagram already account for one out of every five minutes Americans spend on smartphones, and Facebook drives nearly a quarter of all web traffic.
