What We Watch: explore trending YouTube videos


With Ed Platt and Ethan Zuckerman at the MIT Center for Civic Media, I built an online tool to geographically explore trending videos on YouTube. We logged daily information on trending videos from YouTube and built a network of countries that watch the same videos. We’re doing a bunch of analysis around this to look at cultural connectivity via videos.

Our paper was accepted into the proceedings of the ICWSM2015 conference: The International Affiliation Network of YouTube Trend
