How Teenagers LIsten to Music

August 16, 2012

Can this be true? I guess it is! Who would have thought YouTube would be #1?

From the site:

Radio and iTunes, sure.

But we wouldn’t have guessed that more kids these days listen to music on YouTube than on anything else. Also surprising: The continued survival of CDs.

But maybe it shouldn’t be. Year after year, people want to write the CDs-are-over story. And, yes, CD sales are falling — but they aren’t falling that fast. Sales fell by 3 percent in the first half of this year, and the music industry is on pace to sell about 300 million CDs this year.

The figures in the chart come from a report Nielsen released yesterday. It has lots more on how people discover and listen to music.
