Almost everybody is familiar with the concept of “dog years”.
Basically 1 human year is equal to 7 dog years.
It seems like the Internet moves in dog years too.
For example, it’s hard to remember a time before YouTube.
Where else would we have learned not to provoke Charlie with our finger?
But it’s only been 6 short years since the online video behemoth was unleashed on the public back on May 25, 2006.
And to say it’s been popular is a bit of an understatement. As part of their birthday blog post, YouTube announced that it has surpassed 3 Billion videos viewed per day.
That’s basically one video each day for every Internet user in the world. Pretty impressive.
And while there seems to be no end to YouTube’s growth, they’ve got a long way to go until they catch the original Internet sensation, Usenet, which will turn 32 (that’s 224 in dog years!) this year.
