Google has launched YouTube Trends Map which lets YouTube users take a peek at what videos are being watched and shared by the YouTube community in the United States, according to a new report.

The new YouTube Trends Map shows off the site's top videos trending in the U.S. by age, gender, and regions. YouTube's top videos are selected based on their YouTube views as well as the frequency of shares within a 12 to 24 hour time span.

What's more, the Trends Map currently gives users real-time tracking for the hottest and most popular videos being showcased on the most popular and biggest video-sharing platform in the world. However, videos uploaded within 48 hours may not yet appear in age and gender breakdowns.

Meanwhile, YouTube's Kevin Alloca said "The Trends Map is the result of all the great feedback you've given us from the Trends Dashboard, as we keep working to help you find great videos and channels on YouTube. For now, the Trends Map is only available for the U.S., but stay tuned for the updates."

On the other hand, the Trends Map wouldn't reveal why some of these YouTube videos are so popular, but it's worth noting that YouTube users would be able to use the data on the Trends Map on their geotargeting video campaigns, not to mention getting some very valuable idea of who watches what on YouTube.
