YouTube gets 4 billion video views daily: Report

YouTube is now getting four billion video views on a daily basis reports Reuters. This is a 25 percent boost in the last 8 months. According to the report, roughly 60 hours of video content is now uploaded every minute in comparison to around 48 hours of content in May 2011. Besides this major increase in content creation and consumption, one of the major factors for consumption is the mobile boom with YouTube apps gracing a myriad of devices including smartphones, tablets, and smart televisions in addition to standard old school computers. While most of the four billion videos uploaded don’t display ads, Google still manages to coax around $5 billion in annual advertising revenue out of YouTube ads. Over the past year under the stewardship of Larry Page Google has been streamlining and integrating its marquee products including YouTube. There is no doubt that integration between various Google properties like Google + has also given a fillip to YouTube and its daily traffic. More →
