You’re doing it. At work when you need a break. On your smartphone when you’re waiting for bus. In the evening, on your tablet, while you’re waiting for the commercials to end and The Walking Dead to get back to the zombie apocalypse. You’re watching YouTube videos.
And now, YouTube has announced that it officially has one billion unique users every single month. Congrats to them! YouTube puts it in perspective for us: “Our monthly viewership is the equivalent of roughly ten Super Bowl audiences.”
And: “If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India.”
YouTube isn’t the only social network celebrating. Twitter is seven years old today. Can you even remember a time before tweets? Crazy. So congrats to Twitter too! Video commemoration below.
Even as these networks become more and more ingrained in our daily existences, there are new things right around the bend. And what’s old is new again! Vevo, the music video channel on YouTube, has announced that it will be starting a 24-hour music network online that will be going to television later this year. I want my Vevo TV! (For those who can remember the old MTV commercials.) According to Bloomberg, it’s all about the money, as the company tries to raise some and then make some.
And more companies are getting into the video game, with Conde Nast launching a video network based on its mags, Glamour and GQ.
Then you have digital giant Facebook trying to ramp up its digital game, possibly with hashtags.
So even as we stop to recognize these milestones, the tech world keeps moving along at a rapid clip.
(Fast Company) — Did Universal Music Group make a mistake? Last month, the world’s largest record labelannounced that MTV.com would no longer be carrying its artists’ music videos; instead, the label would broadcast on Vevo, the Hulu-for-music-video platform that has been growing in popularity with help from YouTube. Vevo recently became the No. 1 online destination for music entertainment. But today, a new report from comScore shows that MTV has knocked Vevo from the top spot.
