User generated content going begging for viewers

A study conducted by InsightExpress for Advertising.com researched the online video viewing habits of 500 adults ages 18 and older.

InsightExpress found:
  • Almost a third of the respondents were likely to watch streaming music videos.
  • Nearly half of streaming video viewers are likely to watch news clips or music videos. Almost 88 percent of streaming video are viewed at home.
  • Viewers ages 35+ were 24 percent more likely to watch news clips than the overall group.
  • Conversely, respondents ages 18-34 were 38 percent more likely to watch streamed music videos than the group as a whole.

One surprising finding was that only 20 percent of those who view streaming video are likely to view user-generated content. With all the buzz about YouTube, you would think this number would be must higher.
