Online video was much hyped in 2015 and to everyone’s expectation; it did do justice to the hype. This was the year where you saw Facebook making a foray into space, giving YouTube a run for its money but not without receiving any criticism (the 3-second view saga and the video thefts… yeah that was a deal breaker for a lot of video enthusiasts).
On the other hand, Twitter announced its intention to enter the online video space in a big way in 2016 and live streaming of course bombarded the mobile devices of billions of people across the globe in 2015. Not forgetting MOBILE, which is a whole new BET a lot of OTT players are looking to capitalize on with Vessel, NetFlix, Hotstar, Hulu and plenty others eyeing expansion.
In the midst of all this, we at Vidooly thought of rounding up the year with a bunch interesting video consumption patterns on YouTube across genres like Gaming, Comedy, Entertainment, Lifestyle and Music. Check out these short infographic videos and let us know your thoughts on whether you think 2016 is the year when the FORCE OF ONLINE VIDEO AWAKENS (I still can’t get over star wars 😛 )
