ON A TYPICAL DAY NEAR the end of 2007, the share of Web users going to video-sharing sites like YouTube was nearly twice as large as it was in 2006, according to new data from the Pew Internet & American Life Project. What’s more, in December, nearly half (48%) of Internet users reported visiting a video-sharing site, up from 33% at the end of 2006.

About 15% of respondents said they had used a video-sharing site “yesterday”–the day before they were contacted for the survey. A year ago, 8% had visited such a site “yesterday.” Thus, on an average day, the number of users of video sites nearly doubled from the end of 2006 to the end of 2007.

These results come from a survey of 2,054 American adults conducted between Oct. 24 and Dec. 2, 2007.
