Sunday marks YouTube's eighth birthday, and by the company's own measure things have been going pretty steadily since 2005, when it launched. 

According to a blog on the company's site, YouTube sees more than 100 million videos uploaded to its site every minute, or more than four days worth of clips.

More than 1 billion people visit the site for news, and more than millions of partners worldwide churn out content for YouTube. 

Among some highlights mentioned in the post are Psy's record-breaking views for the videos "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman," plus Sesame Street going global with 1 billion views. No mention of being acquired in 2006 by search giant Google, which was company's biggest purchase to date—$1.65 billion in stock.
