Tiger Woods Press Conference Viewed By Over 680,000 On Ustream
The numbers are in and they definitely show the shift we are experiencing from television to social media.
Today, golfer Tiger Woods came clean of his indiscretions. But, the bigger story could be the 683,000 views on the Ustream website. We are seeing a definite move of viewers from television news to the Internet. Livestream, Hulu, and YouTube (owned by Google) all streamed the 15-minute event live. Their total numbers have not yet been reported.
HIMag’s Take: It is undeniable that social media is a major player in sports news. You wonder how many actually watched Tiger’s press conference, streamed to their mobile phones. Amazing times we are living in.
