Excerpt from Voactiv
Written by Sara Morrison
Over the past few days, a YouTube livestream of a town square in Jackson, Wyoming, has surged in popularity, with approximately two thousand concurrent viewers eagerly awaiting the sight of red pick-up trucks and Jacksonians crossing the street. Two thousand is fifth of Jackson’s entire population, and a hundred times more viewers than the stream had gotten previously.
Why the sudden surge? Robert Strobel, whose company, SeeJacksonHole.com, runs the camera, told Vocativ his theory is that someone found the stream and then promoted it on social media or Reddit, bringing in a bunch of new viewers.
