Youtube turns 8

First launched on the same day 8 years ago on May 2005, YouTube has become the one point stop for many video lovers .

Celebrating the day, YouTube said

Today, more than 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. That’s more than four days of video uploaded each minute! Every month, more than 1 billion people come to YouTube to access news, answer questions and have a little fun. That’s almost one out of every two people on the Internet.

YouTube successfully implemented content creator partners programs which opened up new opportunities for many videoholics and made video uploading a new but serious business.

YouTube further said,

We’d like to thank you for making YouTube the special place that it is. For showing us how video can create connectionstranscend borders and make a difference. For clicking these links even if you aren’t sure what they’ll be, but you trust us. In short, thanks for making us better in big ways and small ones, too.
