YouTube Facts And Figures

We all have heard of YouTube.  But how much do you really know about it?

Jeff Bullas, the author of this website and blog calls this, ‘50 Awesome Facts and Figures About YouTube‘.  We might think of it as, ‘Everything You Always Wanted to Know About YouTube, But Were Afraid To Ask’.  (If you don’t understand the previous statement, then you are not in the sixty something demographic.)

My first recollection of YouTube is hearing about some goofy video, that I didn’t know why anyone would waste their time looking at.  I couldn’t understand what all the excitement was about.

That was four years ago.  Now, as some of you know, I use it frequently to post things on this blog.

Even if you don’t read the entire list of facts and figures here, check it out.  It’s interesting that what started out as an amusement type thing, is now used for some pretty ‘serious’ things:  ‘how-to’ videos, a way to teach students.

What are your thoughts about YouTube?  How have you used it?
