According to Pew Internet, more and more people are watching video online. Their statistics say 71 percent of adult internet users have visited a video sharing site like YouTube or Vimeo, up from 66 percent in 2010 and 33 percent in 2006. 28 percent of adults did so daily, up from the 8 percent who viewed a video online every day in 2006.
Not surprising that yet again the trend continues; African-Americans use video-sharing sites more than their white counterparts, according to Pew, a consistent finding since 2006.
Overall, 69% of white internet users said they had visited video-sharing sites, 13 points higher than in April 2009, and more than double the 31% reported when the question was first asked in December 2006. At the same time, 79% of online African-Americans, Hispanics and others reported using video-sharing sites. That figure is 12 points higher than April 2009, and 41 points higher than in 2006.
