Nearly 90% of the Canada's internet users watch online video and the number of videos consumed online by Canadians has increased 140% in the past three years. While 12- to 17-year-olds took the top spot, with 94% watching, 18- to 24-year-olds trailed by just 1 percentage point. 94% of those in the 12-17 age group regularly watch online video, compared to 93% of those aged 18-24 years old. That age group also watch around 561 videos a month, the highest number among the age groups polled.

Are you an Applebee's fan and a Vine user? Then rejoice as you find yourself with a winning chance of grabbing a TV spot if you successfully capture an “unbelievable” reaction to the chain's diet-friendly “Under 550 Calories” menu via a short form video. The reaction should be one of surprise say Applebee's, because the dishes are so tasty you won't believe they are low-calorie. Cue lots of acting. These and other stories of the past few days in videoland from ReelSEO.
