Video watching takes a giant leap

A recent study reported by Pew Internet & American Life Project shows that watching online video is more popular than Facebook or Twitter. The trend is continuing in that direction and the time spent watching online video has increased as well.

Online video watching outranks the more "headline-snatching" pastime of visiting social networking sites (46 percent), downloading podcasts (19 percent) and updating sites like Twitter (11 percent).

The nonprofit think tank found 62 percent of adult Internet users surveyed in April have watched a video on sites like YouTube, up from 33 percent in 2006.

Not surprisingly, young adults are leading the way - 90 percent of the 18-29 age group used video-sharing sites, up from 72 percent a year ago. Even older viewers are shifting - in the 50-64 age group, 41 percent said they now watch YouTube videos, compared with 34 percent a year ago.

According to the study even cable subscribers have dropped considerably due to the changing trend. The latest data illustrate "the pervasiveness of online video and marks an important moment in the evolution of America's television and movie viewing habits," the report said. "Online video has become more deeply integrated into daily life."

So we hope that Okmulgee.ME will become your frequented site to enjoy from day to day.
