Video has captured the time and attention of American Internet users. comScore reports that Google sites like YouTube served more than 13 billion videos and snagged viewers for 388 minutes during December 2012. Other popular video websites included Facebook, VEVO, NDN, Yahoo!, AOL, Viacom, Microsoft, Amazon and Grab Media. The downloads and live streams produced hours of viewing time across the board, making video among the stickiest content available on content sites.
The data set is a part of a collection of 500 revenue and usership trends in mobile, social, Internet, tablet, video and other digital categories, published in the 200-page Global Digital Media Trendbook 2013.
