hypnosec writes: Facebook, besides being the leader in social networking, has managed to topple Yahoo to gain second position in world’s most popular video sites with respect to unique video viewers per month. According to a comScore report, Facebook garnered more than 53 million unique video viewers last month while Yahoo managed only 49 million. Google is still at the ace position with a whopping 157 million unique viewers. Despite being second, Facebook was nowhere near Yahoo’s 625 million video views. Facebook users only viewed 327 million videos. Further, when it comes to the average number of minutes per viewer, Facebook users watched 21.7 minutes of video as compared to Yahoo’s 70.4 minutes. Users on Google, thanks to YouTube, viewed on an average 8 hours of video content.
Advertising is a valuable economic factor because it is the cheapest
way of selling goods, particularly if the goods are worthless.
