YouTube is the third most trafficked site on the Internet. Each month over 800 million people log on to watch over 3 billion hours of video with 72 new hours of video being uploaded every single minute. The way that people watch entertainment is changing, and it’s opening up a new world of opportunities complete with brand new names and faces.
These names and faces have come to be commonly referred to as “YouTubers”. Yet the questions still remain: What is everybody watching on YouTube? And Who are these people creating all of this new content?
