- More than 48 hours (two days worth) of video are uploaded to the site every minute;
- That’s a 37% increase over the last six months;
- …and a 100% increase over last year.
And, finally, this: “The other great birthday present? Your views. We’re amazed that over this last weekend, you drove YouTube past the 3 billion views a day mark, a 50% increase over last year. That’s the equivalent of nearly half the world’s population watching a YouTube video each day, or every U.S. resident watching at least nine videos a day.”
I could be accused of being a YouTube fanboy, but it’s not for nothing; these stats move it from being a web curiosity to being a market-mover. Disagree? Tell me about it below.
