YouTube Statistics – Growing like a Mad Child

By Paul Lee

YouTube is celebrating it’s sixth birthday and the statistics are in… It’s a Man Child.

(e.g. lebron james, greg oden, that 6 foot 200lb “12 yr old” pitcher at little league)

A mere two years ago, we wrote a post called YouTube Statistics – The Ultimate Time Suck. This article is currently the one of the most popular posts on Clean Cut Media. However it is amazing how quickly YouTube has grown. 90% of the YouTube Statistics you see out there are clearly outdated… thus here we’ve gathered some of the most current data, straight from YouTube and from articles dated in the last month.

    That’s really pretty cool to see just how far YouTube has come in such a short time. Six years is not a long time you know. They are proof of what can be accomplished when you set out to do something. I’m addicted to them.

    Thanks for sharing.
