Bit.ly, a link shortening service, just released an interactive map that tracks media popularity. It’s a fun little item to explore on a Friday.

According to its numbers, The Guardian is the most popular newspaper site in New York. Sorry New York Times and WSJ!

The map also says that the most popular magazine site is Businessweek, the most popular TV/radio site is PBS, and the most popular online only publication is Slate.

Keep in mind that this only means these are the most popular sites according to bit.ly users. Still, it’s interesting. Or at least, more interesting than this.
