YouTube Hits 1 Billion Hours Watched Every Day
Posted on March 1, 2017
I am a sucker for YouTube. It is extremely easy to get ‘stuck’ watching video after video, and I fall for it all too often!
YouTube just announced in a blog post on Monday that they have hit a new record – 1 billion hours worth of video watched EVERY DAY on their platform! Let’s stop and think about that for a minute. 1 billion hours worth of video watched every single day. That would take over 114,000 years for one person to sit and watch non-stop.
This goes to show the popularity among consumers for video. According to HubSpot, during 2017, video will account for 74% of all web traffic.
Brands need to understand the importance and popularity of video. If video is not part of your routine content marketing strategy, it needs be to. Or else you will fall behind others who have it.
