An interesting report last week from a Bear Stearns analyst looked at the trends in the aggregate percentage of U.S. Internet traffic accounted for by the six top user-generated content sites (i.e., Facebook, Myspace, Youtube, Wikipedia, Blogger, and Digg):
- 2004: 0-1%
- 2005: 7%
- 2006: 13%
As opposed to the long tail, let’s call it the “fat head” of Internet content.
