The Internet’s Next Step

Internet Surpasses Television as Main News Source for Young Adults [STUDY]Two years ago you could surprise someone by saying you checked Facebook updates before email. A year ago, bypassing your live tv (or DVR) by using Netflix or Hulu to catch up on TV shows was considered cutting edge.

Now there’s news that the single biggest source of Internet traffic in North America is Netflix. And, in Latin America, Facebook has become a bigger source of traffic than YouTube. For content providers of all types, that should be set off some bells.
