Top Ten Web Pages Of 2010
According to the sharing widget-maker AddThis, a widget that is installed in over 7 million sites and blogs, the top ten shared pages were complied for this year. This from Mashable (by the way those who have never been to Mashable, we here at MOB visit them daily) posting that 6 of the 10 of the most-shared web pages were mainly videos or photos. This corresponds to the current trend of lost readership in traditional print media, that of course being newspapers and magazines.
In another trend, this coming year will see as many people will spend the same amount of time in front of a computer as their TV set. Expect this number to continue to grow and in 2012 we will see the internet over take the “TV couch potato”. In another trending interest, we will see YouTube overtake Yahoo as the second largest provider of internet searches. Also of note, expect to see good “old” email grow in stature, as companies are finding that email is a safer long-term investment than social media.
