Dailymotion has reached a deal with EMI Music to offer the record label’s library of music videos on its website, mobile site, iPhone app and the Dailymotion channel on Internet connected TVs.
Beginning in April, Dailymotion users will be able to view EMI music videos from artists including Coldplay, Katy Perry, Robbie Williams, David Guetta and others. The agreement makes use of Dailymotion’s ad platform, which will show ads with EMI videos on all three screens.
An interesting study has been released by PR firm Ruder Finn, which finds that 91% of mobile phone users go online to socialize, compared to only 79% of traditional desktop users. Meanwhile, Americans are spending an average of 2.7 hours on the mobile Internet.
It’d be a big understatement to say that 140-character messages are becoming more common online. Tweet-related data has been released (and analyzed), proving that rapid growth is taking place, and one prediction even puts the number of tweets that’ll be transmitted this month at 1.4 billion.
Believe it or not, Pingdom’s forecast is really quite sane. In December, Twitter passed the billion-tweets-per-month mark. Then, in January, 1.2 billion tweets were documented. So 1.4 billion wouldn’t represent much more than the continuation of this trend.
