Google Inc's YouTube Wednesday announced that the number of unique users visiting the YouTube every month has surpassed 1 Billion.
"In the last eight years you've come to YouTube to watch, share and fall in love with videos from all over the world. Tens of thousands of partners have created channels that have found and built businesses for passionate, engaged audiences. Advertisers have taken notice: all of the Ad Age Top 100 brands are now running campaigns on YouTube. And today, we're announcing a new milestone: YouTube now has more than a billion unique users every single month" YouTube posted in its official blog.
The blog also states, "Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube. Our monthly viewership is the equivalent of roughly ten Super Bowl audiences. If YouTube were a country, we'd be the third largest in the world after China and India. PSY and Madonna would have to repeat their Madison Square Garden performance in front of a packed house 200,000 more times. That's a lot of Gangnam Style!"
Back in October 2011, YouTube had reached 800 million visitors in a month and it took nearly 17 months to surpass the one billion mark. With the benchmark of one billion visitors achieved, YouTube has now become good competitor to the social networking giant Facebook, which attained the scale of one billion visitors per month in earlier October 2012.
