We might think that most citizens of Earth could see too much video. Let’s start with YouTube. The popular video sharing and social site reports more than 800 million unique visitors every month. That’s more than four billion hours viewed monthly! An incredible 72 hours of video is uploaded to the site every minute. Every minute!
To put this in perspective, there’s some seven billion people on the planet; more than 311 million in the U.S. YouTube tells us that in 2011 it had more than one trillion views — approximately 140 views for every person on Earth.
