You Tube hits 20% of all UK social networking visits
Video streaming service is now the UK's third most visited website after Facebook and Google
You Tube, the hugely popular video sharing website, now accounts for one in five visits to social networks from the UK's internet users. That’s up from one in six visits just 12 months ago.
Although it’s a long way from catching Facebook, which makes up more than half of the visits to social networks, You Tube’s growth has been mighty impressive.
You Tube is on a roll at the moment. It is preparing to launch its movie-on-demand service charging viewers to screen the latest blockbusters as soon as they're released on DVD, and a few days ago, it announced a record 72 million live streams for the Royal Wedding. The glittering ceremony was broadcast to 188 countries.
