YouTube has just announced that they are now serving “60 hours of video every minute,” an increase of more than 30 percent in the last eight months.
“Since the dawn of YouTube, we’ve been sharing the hours of video you upload every mnute. In 2007 we started at six hours, then in 2010 we were at 24 hours, then 35, then 48, and now, you’re uploading one hour of video to YouTube every second. Tick, tock, tick, tock — that’s “4 hours right there!”,” informed YouTube.
The YoyTube team also created an annimated video using their dataheads with onehourpersecond.com — Watch the interactive video below, showcasing what happens in a YouTube second:
The team further writes, “for all the hours of video you’re uploading–you’re watching more as well; we’ve now “exceeded four billion video views globally every day.” That’s up 25 percent in the last eight months and the equivalent of more than half the world’s population watching a video every day, the same number as there are US $1 bills in circulation, the same as number of years since there was water on Mars…it’s a big number, and you’re making it bigger every day.”
