YouTube is back with a vengeance and is now more popular than cable

During Google’s recent earnings conference call, Google chief business officer Omid Kordestani said that YouTube is now bigger than any individual US cable network when it comes to attracting 18-49 year olds, advertising’s most sought after demographic.

Despite YouTube’s apparent inability to generate much of a profit, the popular video sharing site has seen user engagement metrics skyrocket in recent months. Speaking to this, Kordestani relayed that viewers are spending more time watching YouTube videos than ever before. Year over year, the amount of time users, on average, spend watching videos is up an impressive 60%. Underscoring this tremendous growth, Kordestani added that this is the fastest growth rate in viewing time YouTube has seen in over two years.

Back in February of 2014, this figure was just 25%.

A new video uploaded to YouTube over the weekend shows what it’s like for a cat to find itself up in the air against its will – and from the looks of it, the cat doesn’t seem too happy about it.
