Since then, the power and influence of YouTube has grown at breakneck speed. It can even claim to be the second largest search engine in the world – after Google itself. Some of his stats are quite shocking:
- Total number of people using YouTube- 2,600,000,000
- Hours of video uploaded to YouTube per minute – 500 hours
- Number of videos viewed on YouTube per day – 5,000,000,000
- Average number of YouTube mobile videos per day – 1,000,000,000
Google commissioned a survey in 2016 to understand what the latest viewing trends were on YouTube. Some highlights of the survey were:
- 6 out of 10 people prefer online video platforms than live TV
- On a monthly average, 8 out of 10 people between the ages of 18 and 49 watch YouTube
- On mobile alone, YouTube reaches more people ages 18-49 than any broadcast or cable TV network.
So, with so much time watching YouTube on a wide variety of devices, what kind of content are people watching? In fact, it turns out that people watch a wide variety of things, which probably reflects the fact that YouTube viewers now span the full spectrum of ages and types of people. Of course, for many people, YouTube has only one purpose – it’s an easy way to watch music videos. And music videos can’t be ignored – there are so many of them.
2020 was a difficult year for humanity. The epidemic of the Coronavirus drove loved ones apart. Many people lost their jobs as businesses, both large and small, closed throughout the world. Some people worked numerous jobs to make ends meet. However, as 2020 approaches, individuals are yearning for brighter days, while others are attempting to make people’s lives a bit easier. One such individual is a YouTuber from the United States who just gave out $100 to random people in his newest video.
