Facebook inflated a key video view metric by 60-80% for two years

Yeah, not surprised. Especially since they keep turning on (or “forgetting”) autoplayback on the mobile apps (the only way I use Facebook to keep it out of my browser). Most likely they only start charging for videos that play for at least three seconds, and didn’t consider under three seconds an actual viewing.

Right now, only HHVM and React have been any good, every other tech initiative from Facebook has been “meh”.
