10 Days of Youtube

While analysing data of my own online behaviour. I noticed that Youtube had some interesting things to say about my behaviour. In a period of roughly 10 days, I started comparing my search query with the video's that I actually watched. I put the data next to each other and started drawing lines from where I search for a video to where I watched it. Doing this reveals gaps of where I watched a video that I didn't search for through recommendations, my subscription feed or external websites like Facebook. There are also lines with a dead end on the search side because I didn't view every video that I searched for.
