Want to spice it up in the kitchen? You don’t need a recipe book or have to sit in front of the TV and follow the Food Network for inspiration! As you’re scrolling through your Facebook feed, you may have started to see short cooking videos or recipes that make you want to stop what you’re doing and head to your kitchen. This shouldn’t come as a surprise though; social media is being used by our favorite food brands who want to share with us what they are about.
The Power of Food Videos on Facebook
Facebook is one of the best platforms for foodies who are looking for pictures and videos of short and easy recipes they can try. According to an article about the Top Facebook Creators, some of the most watched videos are related to food. With over 5.4 billion views on Facebook videos in August 2016, many of these videos were about food or delicious recipes. In fact, BuzzFeed has said that food and drink is one of the most engaged topics that they create video content about. Video also contributes to more than 50 percent of BuzzFeed’s total revenue.
So what pages should you follow for the best foodspiration? While there are so many with finger-licking recipes to choose from, below are my favorite seven pages I go to for inspiration in the kitchen. By watching just a few of their short videos, I can bet that you’ll be whipping something up in the kitchen in no time!
