YouTube is one of the channels that entered our lives with the internet, the locomotive of digital transformation. The platform, which hosts tons of videos and has managed to become a source of income for content producers, especially in the last 10 years, continues to grow day by day. So how many videos have been uploaded to the channel, which has been active for 18 years? This question was recently answered.
How many videos have been uploaded to YouTube to date?
Blogger Ethan Zuckerman shed light on unknown facts about YouTube with a report he shared on his website. According to the report, exactly 13 billion 325 videos were uploaded to the platform between 2006 and 2023. When we look at the shared statistics, it is possible to say that the medium entered a growth trend starting from 2006 and peaked in 2023.
Zuckerman underlines that more than 4 billion videos were uploaded to YouTube in 2023, which is a record. Apart from this, the number of views of videos on the platform was slightly below expectations. Because in the report, it is stated that only 4 percent of all videos received 10 thousand or more views.
Another interesting detail about the platform is the average number of views. According to this, a YouTube video is watched 39 times on average. Apart from that, a new record was broken on YouTube in the past weeks. Rockstar’s GTA 6 trailer was watched more than 70 million times in the first 24 hours after its release, breaking a record that is hard to break. This record was previously held by famous US YouTuber MrBeast with his “7 Days Stranded At Sea” video, which received 59.4 million views.
