YouTube Surpasses Two Billion Video Views Daily

Less than a month after its 5th birthday, YouTube has announced that it has exceeded 2 billion video views per day
We’ve been tracking YouTube’s explosive growth for some time, and the numbers are beyond impressive. There are now over 24 hours of video uploaded every minute to the site, but even that is overshadowed by the newly-announced 2 billion video views per day stat. That’s almost 1/3 of the world’s population.

As part of the celebration, YouTube also created a very detailed infographic tracing the site’s history

My Comments on the article are below;

Not too many people paid attention to the YouTube global broadcast of the Indian IPL cricket tournament (because i run the website it was a big deal for us), pay attention to what YouTube plan on globally simulcasting next.

This was the third event (but the biggest so far) where YouTube were delivering live video and I expect them to go more in this direction.
