A new survey by ooVoo, a large independent social video chat provider with over 85 million registered subscribers worldwide, shows that Halloween is now the most popular holiday among 15 to 25 year olds. ooVoo asked 1,500 of their users, of which 65 percent are under the age of 25, which holiday is their all-time favorite. Larry Lieberman, chief marketing officer of ooVoo, said "The rise in popularity of Halloween among millennials is a clear indicator that they crave casual fun in a world where they feel pressured by other popular family activities."
- Halloween: 51%
- Christmas: 39%
- Valentine's Day: 7%
- Other: 3%
To celebrate Halloween this year, ooVoo has introduced the "Zombie" video filter in their mobile app that will automatically allow users to appear ghoulish during video chats with their friends. The filter will be available on any iOS and Android smartphone or tablet. Last year you may remember the prank they played when a girl suddenly broke into your chat and then something happened (see video).
