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.
