Google is No. 1, and its YouTube is No. 4. Which of these do you use the most?
Monday, January 7
The Web is a part of everyday life, and as 2012 comes to a close, it's interesting to see which online properties are the most used. No surprise on no. 1: Google, the top online search engine, is no. 1, according to Nielsen information. And YouTube, the leading video sharing site which is owned by Google, is no. 4. Facebook, the mammoth social networking site, is no. 2. It had almost 153 million unique visitors per month, according to Nielsen. Also worth noting: AOL Media Network was at No. 7, with 86.6 million unique visitors per month. (AOL is the parent company of Patch.com). Yahoo, still strong in search and also a leader in online content, was at No. 3. Which web sites do you use most? Share your online favorites in the comments below.

On occasion, we here at West Cobb Patch venture onto YouTube to find videos of local relevance. A recent video that caught our eye was one uploaded by DouglasvilleCITITV on Monday. The clip shows several service men and women wishing their families happy holidays. As of early Wednesday, the video (which is attached to this article) had nine views. The service members—filmed while abroad in Afghanistan, Germany, South Korea, Spain and other locations—had holiday messages for family and friends in Powder Springs, Austell, Douglasville and several other nearby cities. We’ll try to keep an eye on YouTube for videos filmed by or starring locals. If you see any interesting ones we’ve missed, send us an email at email@example.com.
