Market research firm, comScore, on Monday released some staggering numbers about the number of videos watched by U.S. Internet users. According to comScore’s data almost 173 million users watched online video during the month. They calculated that YouTube viewers watched an average of 93 videos during the month.
It should come as no surprise that Google sites topped the list. Here are some stats from the report:
U.S. Internet users watched 32.4 billion videos in January with Google Sites ranking as the top U.S. video property with 12.8 billion videos. YouTube.com accounted for nearly 99 percent of all videos viewed at the property. Hulu ranked second with 903.1 million videos, or 2.8 percent of the all online videos viewed. Microsoft Sites ranked third with 491.8 million (1.5 percent), followed by Yahoo! Sites with 435.5 million (1.3 percent) and Viacom Digital with 361.2 million (1.1 percent).
Well, I can say that I was one of those people watching lots and lots of videos in January.
