YouTube now at 1 billion monthly users Behemoth video sharing site YouTube has now reached 1 billion unique monthly users.
The number is extremely significant given that there are just under 7 billion humans on Earth.

Says Google:

What does a billion people tuning into YouTube look like?
-Nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube.
-Our monthly viewership is the equivalent of roughly ten Super Bowl audiences.
-If YouTube were a country, we'd be the third largest in the world after China and India.
-PSY and Madonna would have to repeat their Madison Square Garden performance in front of a packed house 200,000 more times. That's a lot of Gangnam Style!

YouTube now joins an elite club started by Facebook last year.

How the hell does anyone know. Does the earth periodically go "ah dame there's another thousand, time to shake a little."
