5 Short-Form Video Content Platforms

We know people really like short videos. We do too! Short videos are all over the place nowadays, and lots of people love them. Big social media companies are putting a lot of focus on short videos and content because of their popularity.

Short videos started becoming big back in 2013 with Vine (which we really miss!). Since then, they’ve become the most popular type of content on social media.

Since there are many platforms to pick from, we thought it would be useful to list and talk about the Top 5.

Let’s face it – TikTok is probably the most popular place for short videos and content. Thanks to its super smart recommendation system and never-ending feed of videos, TikTok can easily suck you in for hours.

Besides just watching videos, TikTok lets anyone become a creator. They’ve got cool tools right in the app for editing videos, plus features like AR, music, text, and sound effects.

TikTok started in China back in 2017. At first, it was all about music and dancing, but now it’s the go-to spot for short videos all around the world.

3. YouTube Shorts

YouTube has always been the go-to place on the internet for watching and sharing all kinds of videos. But as short videos became more popular, it was only natural for YouTube to jump on board with its own version. Enter YouTube Shorts!

YouTube Shorts is YouTube’s way of doing short videos. You can find Shorts right on the YouTube website or in a special section of the YouTube app on your phone.

Shorts works a lot like regular YouTube, but the videos are super short, only up to 60 seconds long. They show up in a never-ending feed of clips, kind of like what you see on TikTok or Instagram Reels. When you watch Shorts, they’re based on what you’ve searched for or watched on YouTube before.

If you want to learn more about how to make your videos go viral on TikTok, YouTube Shorts, or other short-video platforms, keep reading!

4. Instagram Reels

After Facebook bought it in 2012, Instagram has become the top spot for sharing photos and videos on your phone with friends. And now, there’s Instagram Reels!

Just like TikTok and YouTube Shorts, Instagram Reels lets you upload short videos, up to 90 seconds long. You can edit them right in the app with music, text, and cool effects.

You can share your Reels with your followers on Instagram, or even with everyone if your account is public.

The Explore feed on Instagram Reels works a lot like TikTok’s For You feed. It uses a smart algorithm to show videos you’ll like, based on who you follow & what you’ve liked in past.

5. Snapchat Spotlight

While Instagram is known for friend stories, it’s important to remember that Snapchat actually came up with idea first. Snapchat is famous for lett you send pictures & messages that disappear. Even today, Snapchat is still cool because of its fun camera & AR tricks.

Snapchat Spotlight is just like TikTok or Instagram Reels. It’s a place where users can make short videos, up to 60 seconds long, and jazz them up with captions, music & cool AR stuff.

You can find Snapchat Spotlight right in the Snapchat app, in its own special tab.


Short videos and content are booming on social media, growing faster than anything else. Companies, brands, creators, and users are all jumping in, making and sharing short stuff on lots of platforms.

We hope this blog post helped you get a clearer picture of the short-form world and the top platforms for short content.
