Any idea how many hours of video are watched on YouTube every day?
One BILLION—you heard that right.
One billion hours equates to over 114,000 years. That’s over one tenth of a million years’ worth of video consumed by YouTube users every single day. How crazy is that?
Additionally, YouTube is said to be the second largest search engine in the world, behind only Google. 1.5 billion people use it monthly, and 5 billion videos are watched on it every single day. A staggering 80% of 18-49 year-olds watch YouTube, and if we look at 13-17 year-olds, the numbers come in even higher at 90%—which means YouTube reaches more people than any cable network in the U.S.
