It may be Twitter's 7th birthday, but YouTube is celebrating something bigger. On Wednesday, the video streaming service announced it's reaching an astounding 1 billion users per month. That means more than a billion unique individuals visit the website every single month.
Youtube, founded in February 2005, also shared these fun facts:
- 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!
