YouTube celebrated its seventh birthday by saying it has hit fresh milestones in terms of its offerings and the amount of time spent on the video-sharing website.
"Like many 7-year olds around the world, we`re growing up so fast! In other words, every single minute you now upload three whole days worth of video instead of two. That`s 61 Royal Wedding Ceremonies, 841 Bad Romances, and 1,194 Nyan Cats."
The blog added, "all 800 million of you all over the world have shown us we`re on the right track by increasing subscriptions 50 percent and watching over three billion hours a month."
The Mountain View, California-based Internet search and advertising giant has not yet announced a profit for the video-sharing site despite its massive global popularity.
YouTube has been gradually adding professional content such as full-length television shows and movies to its vast trove of amateur video offerings in a bid to attract advertisers.
"Today 72 hours of video are uploaded to the site every minute," the Google-owned website said in a blog post. Google bought YouTube in 2006 for $1.65 billion.
