We are also seeing a steady increase in independent video creators utilizing the platform, catering to both the urban and rural population. It is a very interesting time in the online video business in India as both YouTube and Facebook are attracting content creators. However; given the fact that Facebook is yet to launch monetization for creators, YouTube still is the place to be if you're looking to make a business out of it."
