As noted in a recent TechPresident article, you can now see interesting statistics on where videos are most popular from various YouTube accounts, including the official White House channel on YouTube. For example, President Obama's video message to the Iranian people on the Nowruz holiday was our third most viewed video overall and our most viewed in Iran.
The President's speech to the Muslim World in Cairo was also widely viewed and was especially popular in the US, Egypt, Nigeria, and Tanzania (in addition to being our most-viewed live-stream broadcast, despite beginning around 6:00 AM EDT):
And not surprisingly, the President's speech in Ghana was most popular in Ghana, although you can see the pick-up in various countries throughout sub-Saharan Africa as well:
Lastly, when the President welcomed 2009 Major League Soccer Champions, the Columbus Crew, to the White House the majority of the video traffic came from ... Argentina!
