YouTube adds real-time analytics with minute-by-minute view counts for videos

YouTube has added new real-time reporting to its analytics dashboard that provides view counts down to the minute for your videos.

Called Simply Secure, the initiative brings together security researchers with experts in user interaction and design to boost adoption rates for consumer-facing security solutions. The companies point out that various security options already do exist, and are technically effective.
