YouTube Users Upload 24 Hours of Video Every Minute
Oops Pow Surprise…24 hours of video all up in your eyes!

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

••• YouTube said Wednesday that 24 hours worth of video are being uploaded to the video-sharing site every minute.

“What’s next? 30 hours? 36 hours?” YouTube director of product management Hunter Walk said in a blog post.“A day’s worth of content uploaded to YouTube every minute is a big achievement for our community and speaks to the role video plays in connecting and changing the world one upload at a time,” Walker said.

Google-owned YouTube announced in May that 20 hours of video were being uploaded to the site every minute, up from 15 hours in January.

In mid-2007, six hours of video were being uploaded to YouTube every minute, according to the site.

Google bought YouTube in 2006 for 1.65 billion dollars but the Mountain View, California-based Internet search and advertising giant has not yet managed to turn a profit with the site despite its massive global popularity.

YouTube has been gradually adding professional content such as full-length television shows and movies to its vast trove of amateur video offerings in a bid to attract advertisers.
