What Are the Most Popular Videos to Watch Online?
We all watch videos on the Internet, but what exactly are we watching?
A new survey has found 78% of Americans watch or download videos, with 58% of them taking in comedy/humor clips, making it the most popular type of video to view.
Coming in second was how-to videos, with 56% saying they do so (hey, we’ve got to figure out some way to fix that leaky pipe, right?).
The most popular videos people watch online:
How-to – 56%
Educational – 50%
Music – 50%
News – 45%
Animation/Cartoon – 28%
Political – 27%
Sports – 27%
Commercial/Ads – 15%
Adult Entertainment – 12%
Perhaps the survey’s most eye-opening finding was that 12% admitted to watching pornography. Twelve! While that's double the number from 2006, we still think either a lot of people are lying or they temporarily forgot the definition of the word because that seems like a very low number.
Only one-in-four men copped to watching porn, compared to 8% of women. However, the good people behind the poll did say "this may reflect a reluctance to report the behavior among some adults." Gee, you think?
