People are now watching ONE BILLION HOURS of YouTube EVERY DAY!

But what does that really mean?!

A billion hours is a long time, but how long exactly? It's 114,808 years!

That's 1,426 times longer than the average life expectancy!

It's longer than if everyone in the UK and Spain took it in turns to watch all 3 Hobbit films back to back!

It's long enough that, if Usain Bolt ran at top speed for all of it, he'd cover 277,000,000,000 miles!

Every second, over 300 hours of footage is uploaded to YouTube!
