It's hard to believe but YouTube are celebrating their sixth birthday today and announced they receive more than 3 billion page views per day, a 50-percent increase over last year. Another impressive feat is that 48 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, a 37-percent increase over the last six months and a 100-percent increase from last year. YouTube are congratulating the improvements to these numbers to their job of making the processing of uploads faster, increasing video length limitations, tweaking the homepage, etc.

YouTube was founded on Valentines Day (Feb 14), 2005 and by May 2005 they had launched YouTube.com. Since then the site has gone through various news headline grabbing problems, with intellectual property infringements and even after the impressive numbers, has yet to make a profit for Google since they acquired YouTube in 2006.
