Fortunately, customers will likely continue to generate more and more data about their preferences, relationships, habits, locations, etc. There's a big market opportunity for companies to use this data to hyper-target their content and advertising and optimize the customer experience. One of the most consistent trends in the technology landscape remains consumers' transition from traditional media consumption to that of digital, as giants like YouTube, Facebook and other web content providers continue to swell in size. As competition in this space heats up, companies are turning to innovative tactics in order to bolster distribution channels and maintain a competitive advantage. According to a recent study by Cisco, online videos will account for over 80% of all web traffic by 2020. Active companies today include: QYOU Media Inc.
