Half of All Users Watch or Share Video

Posted on 1.09.2008
According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 48 percent of Internet users have visited a video-sharing site like YouTube at least once to watch or post a video. That number is a giant leap from 33 percent in December 2006. They also state that 15 percent watch or post a video on a typical day, up from 8 percent last year.

A couple of interesting finds:
  • Men are more likely to have used a video-sharing site - 53 percent, compared to 43 percent of women.
  • 70 percent of users under 30 have used the sites, compared to just 16 percent of those 65 and over.
  • About 25 percent of Americans have recorded video, and of those 14 percent have uploaded their videos - up from 4 percent in 2006.
Video production and uploading is getting easier every day. Be sure to subscribe to Website Magazine (it's FREE) now to get the February issue that includes an article about producing video on a budget.
