Youtube Hits 1 + Trillion Views In 2011
YouTube is probably the most popular video searching and broadcasting web site of its kind during this time in society. YouTube is a popular means of entertainment for various people in America and around the world. It allows viewers to create an account where they can upload videos themselves as well as comment and like other videos that are posted by other users. However you do not need an account to access the YouTube web site, you can still search and view videos without an account, but for some features you have to have an account to access them. YouTube has probably millions of videos of all different categories such as music videos by popular artists, humor videos, animal videos, informational, tutorial, and educational videos, and the list goes on and on.
“YouTube reflected on its banner year today, announcing that it served over 1 trillion playbacks in 2011. “That’s about 140 views for every person on the earth,” YouTube’s Rewind blog post says. YouTube saw record traffic and mobile growth this year. It gets 3 billion views per day, and video uploads have doubled since last year.
Looking at the trends, it’s clear YouTube viewers are looking for quick entertainment, music and humor. The report excluded content from major music labels, and it’s still full of songs. The most viewed video was “Friday” by Rebecca Black,of course. For the year of a trillion views, the success of this weird, bad video is reassuringly YouTube-like.”
It will be interesting to see how YouTube continues to grow in the number of views that it receives in the upcoming year and also what new video will take the number one spot of being viewed. Hopefully it will be better and funnier than this year most viewed Rebecca Black video.
