Posted by shadmia on March 24, 2008

Have you ever heard of Youtube? In Jan. 2008, of the 9.8 billion videos viewed in the US, 3.4 billion were seen on Youtube. It accounted for one out of every three online videos (34.4%).

Some Youtube Stats for Jan. 2008:

  • 80 million viewers
  • 3.4 billion videos watched
  • 109 minutes per person per month
  • 150,000+ videos uploaded daily

It would take 412.3 years to view all the videos available on Youtube.

80% of all videos posted on Youtube are user generated (amateur) videos…..and Youtube has just announced the 2007 Youtube video awards. There were 12 categories:


Category…………………………………………Winner

Adorable……………………..Laughing Baby
