Being Re-Directed To Instagram Instead Of Youtube?

An intriguing aspect of Meta AI is its tendency to redirect users to Instagram. We noticed when asked about videos, it potentially diverts traffic away from YouTube. This could lead to a significant shift in content consumption patterns. Ultimately, this could affect YouTube’s view counts and challeng its position as the leading video platform.

Meta AI’s preference for Instagram over YouTube is a strategic move by Meta to keep users within its ecosystem. This could result in a loss of views for YouTube and posing a threat to its dominance.
