20 Hours/Minute Of Video Added on YouTube
YouTube, the Google-owned video-sharing site, announced late Wednesday in a blog post that 20 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!
On YouTube’s official blog, product manager Ryan Junee wrote that the company was getting six hours of video every minute in mid-2007. In March 2008 that number grew to 10 hours, then 13 and in January of this year, it became 15 hours of video uploaded every minute or “the equivalent of Hollywood releasing over 86,000 new full-length movies into theaters each week”.
If you do the math of 20 hours of video added every minute, that’s 1,200 hours of video per hour, 28,800 per day and 10.512 million hours per year.
YouTube has also launched a feature that lets viewers instantly respond to a video they’ve just watched, making the YouTube experience even more social.
“So thanks, and let’s see if we can get to 24 hours — a full day’s worth of video uploaded every minute” Junee Said.
