However, there are impending concerns for smartphones users as regards the hard drive space on their device. Users with 16Gb or 32GB of space might find it hard to create space to house Facebook videos especially if they are using similar features on other social media platforms.

Meanwhile, Facebook will have to address this storage issues by providing users with the ability to store the Instant Videos on their SD card storage. This will undoubtedly make the feature much more useful than merely caching the videos in the apps data.
