Everyone knows YouTube. Now Google also announced today, “Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube. YouTube has achieved yet another milestone that it has reached 1 Billion active users in a month.
YouTube was launched in February 2005 and was sold to Google with the huge price tag of $1.65 Billion. Many attempts to make rival video sites like YouTube, but none of them can’t survive against the Big G with Massive audience.
Google also added in the Blog,
Gen C spends watching YouTube on their smartphones is up 74% from last year. In fact, in 2012 the number of Gen C viewers who regularly watch YouTube on smartphones caught up to the number of viewers tuning in on their PCs. 67% of Gen C watch YouTube on two devices or more, compared to 53% of the general population.
What does a billion people tuning into YouTube look like?
- Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube.
- Our monthly viewership is the equivalent of roughly ten Super Bowl audiences.
- If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India.
- PSY and Madonna would have to repeat their Madison Square Garden performance in front of a packed house 200,000 more times. That’s a lot of Gangnam Style!
