Today we can all be video producers—and many of us are. Take YouTube, for example. The company released its beta version in May 2005 and, little over a year later, Google bought the streaming video giant for $1.65 billion dollars. Today, YouTube boasts:

  • More than 1 billion unique users each month
  • More than 6 billion hours of video watched each month—almost an hour for every person on Earth
  • 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute
  • 80% of YouTube traffic now comes from outside the U.S.
  • YouTube is localized in 61 countries and across 61 languages
  • According to Nielsen, YouTube reaches more U.S. adults ages 18-34 than any cable network
  • Millions of new subscriptions are added each day. The number of people subscribing daily is up more than 3x since last year, and the number of daily subscriptions is up more than 4x since last year
