Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me” Most-Viewed Youtube Video

Toronto-based social media research company Sysomos has reported that the Music category is the most-viewed on Youtube. This free and interesting report lays out some intriguing social trivia, such as:

  • Music (27.6%) and Entertainment (14.4%) videos receive the most number of embedding
  • These two categories are also the most popular in Europe, South America and Asia
  • A tag cloud analysis showed that “Michael Jackson” and “Health Care” were the issues on most Youtubers minds (“Lady Gaga” and “Black Eyed Peas” rank somewhere below
  • Top music video is – alas – Pitbull’s “I Know You Want Me”, a senseless but very popular song worldwide, with 97.3million views

More from their report here.
