YouTube Hits 1 Billion Users per Month

20130321-080646.jpg

In the last eight years you’ve come to YouTube to watch, share and fall in love with videos from all over the world. Tens of thousands of partners have created channels that have found and built businesses for passionate, engaged audiences. Advertisers have taken notice: all of the Ad Age Top 100 brands are now running campaigns on YouTube. And today, YouTube is announcing a new milestone: YouTube now has more than a billion unique users every single month.

Content creation is getting easier now, with every mobile device able to upload videos in minutes. Even YouTube caught on to this and launched a stripped-down version of its app called Capture, which lets anyone grab video and upload it with two taps.
To give the news some more color, YouTube broke the numbers down a bit:
What does a billion people tuning into YouTube look like?
– Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube.
– Our monthly viewership is the equivalent of roughly ten Super Bowl audiences.
– If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India.
– PSY and Madonna would have to repeat their Madison Square Garden performance in front of a packed house 200,000 more times. That’s a lot of Gangnam Style!

YouTube was founded by 3 former paypal employees, Jawed Karim, Chad Hurley and Stephen Chen. YouTube was acquired by google in 2006 for $1.65 billion.

    Basically any design is a useful one though provided that
    it serves its primal intent behind storing a
    picture or small keepsake. The natural complacency that
    lots of relationships fall into after the
    initial rush is over is the main culprit. After finishing this session, you may be de-briefed and
    presented having a certificate to be a part of this enlivening experience.
