A whopping billion hours of youtube content is being consumed each day.
Nope, your wrong! I consume egg bacon & sausages each day with a nice mug of tea!
It's not a billion, but a thousand million hours, and that is about 114000 years.
1 billions hours of watching Youtube but that including the ads that we cant even skip. It practically saying we wasted 100,000 years of watching stupid ads. I WONT EVEN LIVE TO BE 100 BUT YOUTUBE TAKE AWAY THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF MY PRECIOUS TIME!!
As0112, 28 Feb 2017Its all because of Reliance Jio in india.Lol, I was going to say it
And this is why Youtube has become extremely anti-user. From random takedowns, account blocking, etc. Youtube has lost its roots. It is just a commercial engine now. Too bad people are still flocking on it, creating a vicious circle.
My guess is 300 million of 1 billion hours are pure ads of various length of time. Very annoying to be interrupted by the ads and I now download the videos and save them on disk to view them without those ads... safe and sure. google to find these apps.
" the company should also disclose how much of those 'one billion' hours are advertisements "
I agree with you :)
Jio customers of India must have had huge share in this consumption.
