Every second, one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube. That’s an amazing amount of video. When I go back in time, I can remember writing some blogposts about these YouTube facts & figures, it goes on and on and on and on. In January 2008, every minute there was 10 hours of video uploaded on YouTube. In Oktober of that same year, the amount of uploaded hours was already 15 per minute. In May 2009, there were 20 hours of video uploaded to YouTube per minute, in March 2010 it was already 24 hours. In november 2010 it was 35 hours per minute, and in May 2011 it was 48 hours. And now, in January 2012, YouTube uploads hit 60 hours per minute. Check out the video below:
