American communications company AT&T has released a map which shows the most popular YouTube channel in every US state. They say they built the map using data from Google Trends and Socialblade and it shows a surprising variety of channel types.
Ah yes, Music Lovers, Kids, Gamers and Wrestlers and Ellen Fans – the four kinds of people. There isn’t a human being on the planet that doesn’t fit into one of those categories.
