African-Americans More Likely to Use Online Video Sharing Sites
Jul 26, 2011 Aug 20, 2013

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.
