Submitted by on June 3, 2011 – 2:11 pm

Here’s a bit of a shocker…We all know that YouTube (owned by Google) is the number one destination online where video is consumed, and Facebook was the number two spot.  However, according to a press release that Bell Media just issued, they have taken the number two spot away from Facebook.

“Ranking up amongst the biggest online entities is a testament to the strength of Bell Media to compete not only as the #1 broadcaster in Canada, but as a powerful contender in the digital video marketplace,” said Gary Anderson, Head of Bell Media Digital. “This is very good news for our advertisers, and sets the watermark for media companies in Canada.”

According to comScore’s April 2011 ranking, Bell Media ranks #2 in Canada for videos viewed, and #3 time spent watching video online.
