youtube vs myspace
The latest studies by Nielsen/NetRatings show that video host YouTube is now getting a larger share of Internet traffic than the social networking site MySpace. An article by Guardian Unlimited shows that YouTube commands an Internet viewing share of 3.9% of all Internet visits per day, compared to 3.35% for MySpace. The article also states that YouTube's growth is extremely rapid while MySpace appears to be slowing down. Researchers attribute the difference in popularity mainly to the more "universal appeal" of videos.
