The Red Table Talk episode centering on Jordyn Woods has set a viewing record for Facebook. Per Variety, it was the platform’s most-watched episode ever for the first day of release.
Facebook says that in the first 24 hours, the episode was viewed by about 7.5 million users for at least 60 seconds. It’s worth noting that this statistic is different from a video’s public views, which counts a “view” for a video if it is watched for at least three seconds.
The episode also turned in a record 285,000 “social and press mentions in less than a week,” netting 800,000 interactions (reactions and comments) in the first 72 hours.
Although no official overall stats have been given, it is suspected that the popular Red Table Talk is Facebook’s highest-performing original. Facebook has not given comparable statistics for other originals.
Other originals on Facebook include the Kerry Washington-produced high school drama, Five Points and the Elizabeth Olsen and Jovan Adepo-led, Sorry For Your Loss.
