The NodeXL Series: Conducting a Data Extraction of a YouTube Video Network (Part 7)

A content network consists of an analysis of related clusters of information.  Social media platforms that enable the sharing of contents align with research into crowd-sourcing and self-organizing behaviors, where individuals working often in isolation or in small groups share contents that benefit people on the whole.  One of the most popular digital content sharing sites is Google’s YouTube, where people may share videos of themselves.

An extraction of a video network is based on the metadata used to label the video contents, and this extraction will result in a related tags crawl.

Cat Videos

A popular meme involves videos of cats and their antics.  A search of cat videos on YouTube surface two talking cats, skydiving cats (filmed in front of a green screen), grumpy cats, cats v. dogs, and other themes.  This huge amount of human attention to cats has led to the phenomena of “catvertising” (using cats in word-of-mouth advertising).  In celebration of this theme, this blog entry will focus on a crawl of “cat” on YouTube.  (Also, “cat” is pretty disambiguated.)

Starting with iOS 6, YouTube will not come as a pre-installed app.

In a preemptive move by Google, a new YouTube app is now available for iPhone and iPod touch in the iOS App Store. It is a free app that features an updated user interface and enhanced features. Continue reading “New YouTube App for iPhone and iPod touch launches today”
