Facts and Statistics about YouTube in 2017 you didn't know

In 2017, anyone can be a filmmaker, because obtaining a camera has never been easier and with YouTube, your videos can reach billions of people in less than a day.  After only twelve years of existence YouTube has become the second largest website on the Internet and the second largest search engine currently available.

The fast growth of the most popular video sharing platform took place during the same period of time in which digital video cameras have become more accessible to non-professional film and video makers.

As our infographic shows, YouTube members, upload 500 hours of video content each minute and in June 2017, this video sharing platform had 1,5 billion active monthly users, which means that YouTube hosts the largest audience for your videos on the Internet. The majority of the content uploaded to YouTube fits into People&Blogs category, over 40% of all videos on this video sharing platform belong in this category, thus contrary to the popular belief, music videos aren't the most uploaded type of content on YouTube since only 5% of all videos are music videos. 

YouTube may be the second largest website on the Internet today, but it is the social media website on which people spend the most time on. Facebook users spend around 35 minutes per day on this social network, while Instagram users spend only 15 minutes on the world's most popular photo-sharing app, but YouTube users spend 40 minutes each day watching videos or listening to music they love.
