Most-shared YouTube videos of 2018

With 2018 officially in the books, we looked at some of the most-shared YouTube videos for the year. Here at Diesel Labs we use video engagement and shares as a signal of quality and engagement given that views can often be inflated — so this list specifically ranks video content through an engagement lens.

Unsurprisingly, music videos and celebrity content make a strong showing on the list, and it’s worth noting that even though the #1 video (Ariana Grande’s “thank u next”) was published at the end of November, it racked up an impressive amount of shares in just one month. Another honorable mention goes to K-pop group BTS that appears twice on the list.
