It is a bit surprising that YouTube has already been alive for 7 years. Introduced in May 2005, YouTube has revolutionized the online video market by allowing anyone to upload video’s of home videos, how-to, and much more.
Last year for YouTube’s 6th birthday, they announced reaching a record rate of 48 hours uploaded every minute. This year for YouTube’s 7th birthday, they announced that users are now uploading an entire extra day every minute at an astonishing 72 hours every single minute.
In YouTube’s blog post, they said:
Like many 7 year olds around the world, we’re growing up so fast! In other words, every single minute you now upload three whole days worth of video instead of two. That’s 61 Royal Wedding Ceremonies, 841 Bad Romances, and 1,194 Nyan Cats.
Happy 7th Birthday YouTube!
