70% of young people get their music on YouTube, not Spotify or Apple Music

A new has looked at how young people under 35 listen to music. In the digital age people are moving away from CDs and listening to music online.

Facebook has apparently lost 15 million US users since 2017, but it’s still winning big elsewhere

Somerville, New Jersey-based market research firm Edison Research noted last week that according to a survey it conducted, Facebook has an estimated 15 million fewer users in the US today than it did back in 2017, with the largest dips being counted in the age 12-34 category. The research firm’s president, Larry Rosin, told Marketplace that this represented “about 6 percent of the total US population ages 12 and older,” calling it “a meaningful drop.” It’s also a far larger figure than the 1 mil...

Millions of Americans have left Facebook, led by young people aged 12-34

A new report from Edison Research finds Facebook's American user-base contracted for the second consecutive year in 2018, shrinking by 15,000,000, and that the biggest declines have come from the coveted 12-34 year old group. However -- cue sad trombone -- is that large numbers of these people have shifted to using Instagram, which Facebook owns. Facebook recently announced that it would be merging the back-ends of Instagram, Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger, facilitating unified tracking ...

Podcasts, smart speakers soar as social media stalls, based on new survey

The 2019 edition of a popular annual survey shows usage of social media by Americans is stalling while ownership of smart speakers and tablets has soared over the last year, as has consumer engagement with podcasts. The results are promising for Amazon and Spotify in particular. Earlier today, Edison Research and Triton Digital presented their Infinite Dial report with findings from a phone survey of 1,500 Americans (age 12+) during January and February. Since 1998, the report has tracked the ad...

Smart Speakers Make Inroads Into American Homes

Source: Statista When Amazon announced the Amazon Echo in 2014, many people laughed at the idea of voluntarily letting the world’s largest online retailer put a “listening device” in your home. And yet, the Echo, and Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa with it, became a major success, pioneering the smart speaker market in the United States and internationally. According to a recent statement, Amazon shipped more than 100 million Echo devices since 2014, making it the leader in the highly contested ...

US podcast listeners are as diverse as the US population

A new report by Edison Research indicates that for the first time since the beginning of podcasting, the diversity of monthly consumers of the medium look nearly identical to that of the US population. This means that podcast producers have a great opportunity to create much more diverse varieties of content. This finding is encouraging because the podcast audience used to be three-quarters ‘white’ a decade ago. And this was also a reflection of the types of content produced at that time. But wi...

Voice Tech Like Alexa and Siri Hasn't Found Its True Calling Yet

An anonymous reader shares a report: As the holiday shopping season approaches, voice-powered smart speakers are again expected to be big sellers, adding to the approximately one-quarter to one-third of the U.S. population that already owns a smart speaker and uses a voice assistant at least once a month. Voice interfaces have been adopted faster than nearly any other technology in history. While some of this will likely come to pass, the hype might be disguising where we really are with voice...

What’s next for podcasting?

The podcast market will discover the answer to a foundational question about its future in the next few years. Will it continue along the path of music streaming, where all podcasts are available everywhere on free, ad-supported tiers?  Or, will it follow the path of streaming TV into paid subscription services with exclusive content? Today, effectively all of the industry’s revenue is from advertising — at least in the United States. However, we’re seeing the first steps being taken towar...

Amazon Readies Campaign To Take On Spotify, Apple Music

Podcast Listeners are Too Smart

Well, not “too smart” per se, but too well educated. And not “too well educated” per se, but so educated they are out of step with the rest of America, or as I like to call them/us: Regular people. Here’s the colorful proof, based on Census data and Edison Research data: Yep. 41% of Americans are graced with a High School education or less. Only 12% have Graduate degrees. Compare that to the regular Podcast listener. Only 15% H.S. or less. 30% have Graduate degrees – almost 60% Bachelors Degree...

Podcasts are a great way to catch your audience’s ear

The spoken word is a great way to reach audiences, and that’s why more Canadian organizations are embracing podcasts. “Podcast listenership is growing in Canada,” says Donna Papacosta of Trafalgar Communications and co-author of The Business of Podcasting. “Independent podcasters are producing more shows and organizations are doing it more.” A podcast can be audio or video and is characterized by its serial nature and subscription options. “So if you put a video on your website, or even a simple...

AP Will Replace In-Person Exit Polls With Elaborate Election Voter Survey

NEW YORK (AP) — The Associated Press said Tuesday that it will begin conducting an elaborate election voter survey designed to replace the traditional in-person exit poll, which has been criticized in recent years for inaccuracy and failing to keep up with changes in how Americans vote. AP is convinced that science is on its side. Still, it’s a bold and potentially risky move for the news cooperative, which counts political coverage as a strong suit and which has, until recently, pooled resource...
