YouTube: Over 1 billion served (each day!)
That's a pretty stunning statistic. And according to SiliconValley.com- it's true: users view 1 billion videos a day on YouTube.
YouTube CEO and co-founder Chad Hurley marked the third anniversary of his company's $1.65 billion acquisition by Mountain View Internet giant Google by noting that videos are viewed on the site 1 billion times a day.
"Three years after the acquisition, our platform and our business continue to grow and evolve," Hurley wrote Friday on YouTube's official blog. "We are still committed to the same principles that informed the site early on, but we know things have changed."
Hurley said short, user-created clips are still "voraciously consumed" on YouTube, but added, "As we've started to see demand for longer, full-length content, we've brought more shows and movies to the site."
