Watching videos online has become the new norm, more or less, for internet users in the United States. The question becomes is there a site where people view content more than others? While YouTube has the lion share of viewership, other vendors have made a dent in the landscape. A new poll conducted by SheSpeaks outlines how American women access digital video content online.
eMarketer reports on the poll results which shows that internet users who are female discover videos through these conduits:
· YouTube with nearly 100% of poll responders
· Facebook with 83%
· Websites at 54%
· Word-of-mouth at 49%
· Blogs at 36%
· Twitter at 27%
· Instagram at 21%
Facebook is also one of the primary ways the women polled shared video content. Approximately 71% answered that they used Facebook to share.
Research shows that women have the slightly higher Facebook audience than men. In fact, eMarketer released estimates stating that females should hold the majority at 54.9% of the Facebook community from now through 2019.
