Many people have moved from simply wanting to listen to music online, but wanting to see it.  One of the premier places for music videos used to be YouTube, however they formed a joint venture with VEVO (www.vevo.com) to ONLY feature music videos.  VEVO has been endorsed by many celebrities as the place to watch music, however many people still cling to YouTube and recently MTV released number that say more people watch videos on their site than VEVO.  Have you ever heard of or been to http://www.vevo.com?  What would it take to MAKE more people come to this site than YouTube, even when YouTube SAYS go to VEVO? Does YouTube backing VEVO give them an advantage over MTVvideos or is it the other way around?  Why or why not?  (Must be at least  COMPLETE sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    yes i have been to vevo. well i think people like youtube because they have been with the program for a long time. they know that youtube has any thing and everything. vevo is kind of slow. you have to wait for the little commercial and then they play the song. and while your waiting for the video it skips and stops maybe they can work on that.

    I have never heard of VEVO. I get on the internet, but i don’t really ever pay attention to stuff like that. Maybe it’s something ill try out. I think that more people would start using VEVO if more people knew about it. I honestly think its something that would catch on eventually because it just music videos and people now days like watching just music videos with out all kinds of errors.

    No i have not been to the Vevo website. I think that there is really no telling what youtube can do to make people come to their website. If youtube is saying go to vevo then how can they come back to youtube? Youtube is inspiring people to got to vevo then of course they are going to go to the Website they are given. Also the vevo thing can take advantage over some things because youtube is very popular so people are going to listen to them for being one of their favorite sites.

    I’ve been to Vevo Once. I don’t like the site very much. I hate the Vevo video’s because of the fact that sometime when you watch them you the video’s are in very low quality. I mean other then that vevo is ok…. But i like Youtube a lot! better.

    i have never been to vevo before or heard of it and it would take alot of people to come to this site than youtube because if alot of people stop getting on youtube then it might get boring to some people so they just go on whatever everybody else is on and i think youtube backing vevo is getting a better advantage because this would be interesting and that would turn old

    i went to vevo.com and it seems it already has more than youtube. Youtube is just a name everyone knows and its kind of catchy and Ive been hearing that name sense i was little. Maybe vevo will be popular than youtube but i no when i want to search a sonq i automatically type youtube and its automatically on my phone too. I think ima try vevo though i just have to remember it.

I like youtube more because it has more than just music videos. I don’t really think youtube backing up vevo gives it an advantage. Your going top like what you like and you can’t change that fact.

    Yes i have seen vevo plenty of times. I think you tube more people like it because it been out for a while and not many people know vevo so you tube is so popular more then vevo. You-tube has a whole lot of stuff like everything and people makes a whole lot of others videos. And vevo skips a whole lot and you have to wait for previews and you-tube does also but vevo slower and you-tube is so much faster.

    No, I haven’t heard of VEVO. It would take all of the celebrities to recommend VEVO. I think that VEVO is not cool because VEVO doesn’t have funny videos of people. It is the other way around because MTV has more advertisements, people, and money. People want to watch funny videos.

    m tvs work uh well m tv has gotten real faomous since it killed radio in the late 70’s early 80’s they even got an m tv 2 that is mostly a stunt channel. it seems were entering a new age the techknoligy age rising from the ashes of the ages before it. yea i think vevo will give m tv a boost in ratings since the origanal m tv has lost viewers to music channels like pop central and cmt.

    I have heard of vevo and i have been to the website but i think people that like youtube are wanting to stay with youtube because of all the videos you can watch. vevo like it said, you can only watch music videos because they are only sponsored to let people watch music videos. So people want a bigger selection of videos to watch from. But if youtube is saying that people should watch vevo and its not working, then they need to make commercials and postings on youtube to tell them to watch videos on vevo.

    yes because when you see a advertisement on popular web page you might think its cool and when you get on it, you see it is cool so you tell other people then the see the advertisement and they try it so when you see or i see or somebody else sees, they tell you you tell them you went on it and your good so next time i see a advertisement i might go on it

    and they will get an advantage to the website then the others ones do

    Ive saw Vevo videos on Youtube. But i think Youtube will always be more popular then Vevo. Youtube has been around longer then Vevo. But Youtube could always loose viewers. The viewers could start going to Vevo.com. Ive been on Vevo.com and its not as “simple” as Youtube.

    I think that youtube suppporting vevo doesn’t give them an advantage to be watched more than mtv. Because they get made when vevo features music videos because theyu take a while to load with the best computer program sometimes. I like youtube best because it shows the most videos on the internet between the 3. i really never payed attention to vevo. but mtv is better to me than vevo.

    Vevo is new so it would take forever for people to watch it as much as youtube. With youtube helping, they might have a chance to go over. Vevo won’t e known for a long time right now. Plus, youtube is not very young. It’s like 5 years or so.

And some of the music we listen to doesn’t have music videos so we can’t watch it. So with that I think that I will stick with youtube. Also I think That Youtube is better than them all!!

    i think that this may be benefaction for youtube, if you know what i mean. i also think that this is slightly odd. What i want to know, is are they that desperate for the need to be up there for what they see as the better. other than that, i just don’t know what to say. I wonder if this will actually help them any……..i guess i will find out eventually.
