PL Mental Health Break: YouTube Turns 6

I could remember the time when this fledgeling site called YouTube would only contain mostly home-made videos. Fast-forward to today and it's the de facto place for anything video. The site has empowered billions of people in sharing videos with the push of a button. We at Property Line use YouTube to host several of our video tutorials, and it goes without saying that the site also offers a venue for companies to tap into its broad audience reach. Today, the video media sharing giant turns six, and the stats are pretty amazing:

"The other great birthday present? Your views. We’re amazed that over this last weekend, you drove YouTube past the 3 billion views a day mark, a 50% increase over last year. That’s the equivalent of nearly half the world’s population watching a YouTube video each day, or every U.S. resident watching at least nine videos a day."

3 billion page views per day with 48-hours of videos uploaded each day on average! Wow.
