85 Million User Generated Content Creators in 2008

EMarketer reports that there were 85 million user generated content creators in the United States in 2008.


  1. Stephen Downes says:

    82.5 million.

    And this figure is arrived at by stacking different types of content producers, treating as distinct those who produce blogs, produce videos, etc.

    But of course the same person producing a video might also be producing a blog. I am one such. And there is a significant overlap in the two communities.

    So the figure of 82.5 million is not proven.

  2. Dwight Williams says:

    And how many of us here?
    I’ll be interested in the answer to that one.
