Another 48 Hours
I didn’t nail it EXACTLY, but last month I wrote a post about YouTube being on pace to hit 48 hours of video uploaded every minute. I thought it might happen in March, but definitely in 2011.
Today, in a blog post, YouTube announced that they have indeed hit the 48 hour mark, as well as 3 BILLION views a day (an equally ridiculous statistic). The post has a little infographic and some other fun facts.
It’s no surprise, as lately it seems everyone is getting in on the action.
YouTube has become part of the information-sharing infrastructure that we rely on for everything from the silly to the serious.
People use YouTube…
- To make us laugh (a lot)
- To share independent music (like Pomplamoose)
- Provide first person accounts of breaking news (intense footage from the tornado)
- Capture awesome local events (like Ignite Phoenix)
- Promote brands in a creative way (ladies…)
- Teach how to play guitar, change a tire, or make a soda rocket
- and so… much… more…
So, once again, here’s my interpretation of what that stat really means.
As creative producer, Krys is involved with every Vertical Measures project that requires content. He brings his creative mind to ideating, copy writing, and video production and manages teams of designers, web developers, and other creative professionals on bigger projects. His experience in arts and technology make him versatile, and his experience working for non-profit agencies helps him get the most out of a budget.
