Big boost in traffic to video sharing web sites

Posted by wholeenchilada on January 10, 2008

NY Times has an intersting piece discussing the big boost in traffic to video sharing web sites, like YouTube. Here’s a clip from the article:

The audience for YouTube and other video sharing websites has risen sharply in the past year, with almost half of online adults logging onto such sites, reports a study from Pew Internet & American Life Project. In a national phone survey of 2,054 adults, 48 percent said they have visited a video sharing site, up from last year’s 33 percent. Fifteen percent reported using a site like YouTube “yesterday”, or the day before the respondent was contacted for the survey, compared to eight percent of users last year; this means the number of video site users has nearly doubled from the end of 2006 to the end of 2007. Of the demographic groups, daily traffic among high school graduates, women and respondents aged 30 to 49 has increased the most.

Here’s a link to Wikipedia’s List of video sharing websites and their Video sharing definition.
