[Infographic] YouTube’s Top 1,000 Channels Reveal An Industry Taking Shape

first_imgYouTube is still the pesky younger sibling of television, which is the wicked uncle of Hollywood. But the social video site is slowly becoming a formidable medium in its own right, creating new business models and spheres of influence for – literally – a million rising stars.OpenSlate, which describes its services as delivering “actionable information about the value of online video to advertisers,” recently put together an infographic analyzing the top 1,000 YouTube channels.Some of the findings are mind-blowing, like the fact that over one million YouTubers run ads on their content. To put it another way, YouTube writes checks to more than one million people monthly. That’s more than the U.S. television industry employs.The highest-performing 1,000 make a cool six figures a year. According to OpenSlate, the average revenue for the top 1,000 channels is $23,000 a month for an average annual payout of $276,000. (Contrary to popular belief, YouTube money is not easy money. Many of the top YouTubers have been at it for years. They produce content regularly, and employ cameramen, editors, researchers, managers and writers.)OpenSlate’s stats also showcase how influential these top YouTubers are. In the past 30 days, the top 1,000 generated more than 87 million social interactions (including comments, favorites, and ratings) on the site. Those interactions don’t stop at YouTube either; they spill out onto Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr (which was not included in OpenSlate’s research).The data also sheds light on YouTube’s premium content project, known as Original Channels. 23 of the 100 Original Channels made it into the top 1,000 in under a year. That’s especially impressive considering most of the top 1,000 have been on YouTube since as early as 2007.   Related Posts Tags:#web#YouTube 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Infographic created by OpenSlate – Discover the New Premium in Online Video.

The Swiss scored two goals to help Liverpool beat Manchester United 3-1.Mourinho was subsequently fired as United on Tuesday and Shaqiri has received some messages from his friends about the impact of his goals.”I had a lot of messages from my friends when it happened,” Shaqiri said in an interview with The Guardian.”There were a lot of good messages about the United game at first and then, when the news came out about Mourinho, I had messages saying: ‘That’s your fault!’ But this is football sometimes.”I don’t think it was just because we won that game that United wanted to change their manager.”There were other reasons but it means the game goes down in history.

Or the two. I do not know if Florentino (Perez) wants to sign one of the two.

Inside the Hollywood Home of Social Medias Stars Dont Be Shy

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Katie, left, and Bri Teresi, sisters and swimsuit models who live at 1600 Vine, were tapped by a neighbor to appear in an Instagram video that has been viewed more than two million times.Credit: Molly Matalon for The New York Times LOS ANGELES — On any given day, something crazy is likely to be happening at 1600 Vine Street, a 550-unit apartment complex in Hollywood.A scary-looking clown might be shimmying across a narrow ledge eight floors above the sidewalk, or a young woman dangling from a balcony while a masked man wields a knife. A husky dog with pink ears, a pony, a baby monkey and other exotic animals also call it home.But you don’t need to live there to experience the high jinks, because they are available for anyone to watch on YouTube, Instagram and whatever social media platform comes next. The building at 1600 Vine functions as dormitory and studio lot for some of the internet’s biggest stars. Facebook Videos shot there have been watched billions of times. The common spaces — a spacious gym, walkways lined with beige blocks and a courtyard surrounded by lush plants — are so recognizable that it’s like walking onto the set of a popular TV show.
