Why do so many Americans post videos online?

Cat’s are not lazy…they’re energy efficient!

Good Day World!

 Have you posted a video on the internet lately? Have you ever posted a video?

I discovered the percent of American adult Internet users who post videos online have more than doubled to 31 percent from 14 percent in 2009.

There’s a new report out about online video posters from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project.

I’d advise you check this link out if you want some startling statistics. I’ve yet to post a video myself. My reasons are varied and complex.

I really enjoy it when other people post videos about animals in funny situations. The one featured here is a riot, watching that imperious pussycat bitch-slap a pit-bull!

Here's some other tidbits from Pew's report, based on a nationally representative telephone survey of 1,003 adults done in July, that paint a picture of our online video habits:

  • Videos about dog shaming, or babies and cats on Roombas might not provide any insight to the current Congressional crisis, but they sure make us laugh. And comedy videos continue to lead the list of the most widely viewed types of videos online, with 58 percent of adult Internet users say that's the genre they favor. That's followed by "how to" videos, 56 percent, and educational videos, 50 percent and music videos, 50 percent.
  • Younger adults are "twice as likely as their older counterparts to post and share videos online," with 41 percent of 18-to-29-year-old Internet users and 36 percent of 30-to-49-year-old users doing so, compared to 18 percent of Internet users ages 50 and older.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
