YouTube Introduces Trending Map

Google, YouTube’s parent company, released a feature today that maps out videos currently trending by city across the U.S. Previously, you could filter trending videos by age and location, but today is the first day that Google unveiled a map on which the trending videos are overlaid. And now, you can also view the trending videos based on the number of shares they’ve gotten, as opposed to purely the number of views they’ve gotten. The map is currently only functional for the U.S., but in its blog post YouTube suggested that it might roll the map out for other areas in the near future.
