YouTube declared that its number of monthly unique users had passed one billion. According to its official blog.
“If YouTube were a country, we’d be the third largest in the world after China and India,” the triumphant post said.
The announcement comes six months after Facebook reached a billion users.
YouTube launched in February 2005, a year after Facebook, and in its early years was run from a small office above a fast-food restaurant in California.
In 2012 it is estimated that YouTube generated $1.3bn in video advertising. Many hundreds of millions more are thought to be generated from search and banner advertising on the site, according to the Financial Times.
YouTube claims that one in every two internet users is a regular visitor to the site.
At the end of last year it celebrated the world’s first billion-view video with Psy’s Gangnam Style. The South Korean singer’s dance craze video is now well on the way to 1.5bn views.
YouTube now gets more search queries than any other website apart from Google’s own search engine.
