Research on YouTube’s Popular Videos

[blip.tv ?posts_id=2237270&dest=15981]

I had the opportunity to speak with Jean Burgess and Joshua Green about their new book, called YouTube: Online Video and Participatory Culture. They completed a large-scale content survey of certain categories on YouTube that might be seen as “the most popular.” Here, they talk a bit about what they found and whether or not prior assumptions that have been reported about YouTube’s content lined up to the videos they examined in their sample.
