YouTube.com now owned by Google which was found only 6 years ago said it was attracting a staggering three billion views a day, a 50-percent increase over last year.
"That's the equivalent of nearly half the world's population watching a YouTube video each day, or every US resident watching at least nine videos a day," YouTube said in a blog post.
YouTube said the footage upload rate had grown from eight hours per minute in 2007 to the current 48 hours per minute.
Google paid in 2006 for $1.65 billion YouTube. Yet turning a profit, still remains elusive..
