Have you noticed how almost all Facebook videos look the same? It’s as though there’s a guide detailing how to make a Facebook video people will actually watch.

In this case the story is of a woman who thinks she has lost her cat only to find it sitting on the windowsill in her house. But the beats are the same as countless other Facebook videos.
