    According to ComScore who published their latest rankings for monthly online video data. Leading the way is Google's YouTube which combined racked up over 184 million unique views for the month of July. Yahoo had been a perennial second place until people started using Facebook to consume online video. In July Facebook racked up 53 million views as opposed to the 48 million views recorded by Yahoo.

    Very interesting... I would be even more interested to know how many of those Facebook videos are actually embedded/linked from YouTube? I'm guessing most of them, here's why: If you've ever tried uploading a video featuring a famous song as the music track to Facebook direct (vs. embedding from YT), you may discover the video will be deleted. Why? I've heard Facebook does not have their licensing structure in place with ASCAP/BMI/SESAC (YouTube does). And the way Facebook gets around that: Those unlicensed music tracks are technically not hosted on Facebook...

    YouTube always rocks :) Now its the time for facebook to become as popular as YouTube in terms of videos, but let's not forget the fact that most of the videos shared on the facebook are from YouTube :).

    Most of the people share YouTube links instead of uploading their own videos isn't it?

    Yes, that is true, but YouTube is all the time favorite of people, though we do not ignore the fact, that if we do not use Facebook it's as something is missing. Not sitting on Facebook is like not having the meal for your day.

    If we don't have Facebook, where are we going to share all of these YouTube videos?
