It's amazing to think about it, but You Tube is taking over the world, or at least the internet, anyway. Statistics reveal the amount of videos uploaded to the site now numbers 1 hour of video uploaded per second.  According to a You Tube blog post, more than half the world is watching videos every day.

For all the hours of video you're uploading—you're watching more as well; we've now exceeded 4 billion video views globally every day. That's up 25 percent in the last eight months and the equivalent of more than half the world's population watching a video every day, the same number as there are U.S. $1 bills in circulation, the same as the number of years since there was water on Mars. … It's a big number, and you're making it bigger every day.

Check out this cute video that expresses the point.
