Parents Share More Videos of Kids Than Cats, Survey Finds [Infographic]

No wonder Grumpy Cat is so grumpy: parents are now sharing more videos of their kids than of their cats, according to a survey of parents by Magisto.com and PlayScience global research firm. In fact, parents are three times more likely to shoot and share videos of their kids (27 percent) than they are of their pets (9 percent).

Shooting a video does not always guarantee that it will be shared, the research showed. Overall, 60 percent of parents said they shoot at least three videos per month, while less than half (44 percent) say they share at least three videos per month. But 53 percent of parents said they shoot videos of their kids just so they can share them with others and 88 percent of parents will share them either way.
