This works out at 2,100 hours uploaded every hour, or 50,400 hours uploaded to YouTube every day. This is phenomenal growth considering it was only in March when the site announced they were receiving 24 hours of video content per minute.
On it’s blog, YouTube highlights the magnitude of these figures as follows, “ If we were to measure that in movie terms (assuming the average Hollywood film is around 120 minutes long), 35 hours a minute is the equivalent of over 176,000 full-length Hollywood releases every week.
Another way to think about it is: if three of the major US networks were broadcasting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the last 60 years, they still wouldn’t have broadcast as much content as is uploaded to YouTube every 30 days.” – wow!
