Online media giant, YouTube, announced a new milestone this week, reaching one billion unique monthly views. To put things into perspective YouTube made the comparison that if they “were a country, [they’d] be the third largest in the world after China and India”. The 25% annual growth comes after 8 years serving the internet community with countless hours of cat videos, Photoshop tutorials, Harlem Shake parodies and the like.

Also released this week was the new IPSOS MediaCT and Wikia poll of 1,203 teens aged between 13 and 18. The study showed a mammoth 93% checked the site daily compared to only 65% who checked Facebook, crowning YouTube as king of social media site for teens.
