Data from Google shows that South Africa leads in Africa with most playbacks and video uploads, followed by Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria.
HumanIPO reported in March that YouTube had reached over one million monthly users, with over six billion hours of video watched every month, a quarter viewed on mobile devices.
“Millions of partners are creating content for YouTube and more than 1,000 companies worldwide have mandated a one-hour mid-day break to watch nothing but funny YouTube videos. Well, we made that last stat up, but that would be cool (the other stats are true),” YouTube said in a blog post.
The post then went on to thank YouTube users “for showing us how video can create connections, transcend borders and make a difference. For clicking these links even if you aren’t sure what they’ll be, but you trust us. In short, thanks for making us better in big ways and small ones, too. We can’t wait to see what you come up with next.”
