YouTube has done a great transformation in the world of the internet, but there are some weird facts about YouTube that not many people are aware of. Below, we have come up with some of the interesting and must-know facts about the video platform.
YouTube is smaller than Facebook
As per a recent study involving the internet, almost 77 percent of the users accessing the internet use Facebook, but just 63 percent of the internet users are on the video streaming platform - YouTube.
A majority of YouTube users are outside the U.S.
It is reasonable to think that a majority of the YouTube users are living outside the U.S. But, can you guess which country contributes the most to the non-U.S. YouTube views? Well, the people in Saudi Arabia use YouTube the maximum as they contribute to almost 90 million views on a daily basis.
Music is the most searched on YouTube
Well, the study claims that music is the most searched topic on YouTube. While that does not sound weird to you, Minecraft is the second most searched topic on the video streaming platform. It is known that Minecraft is very popular, but you might not have known that it is the second most searched topic on YouTube.

Teens use YouTube the most
Around 82 percent of the internet users in the U.S. ranging in the age group between 14 and 17 years use YouTube. There is no denying that teens love YouTube, but what sounds weird is that 18 percent of the U.S. internet users in the same age group do not use YouTube. It is a bit hard to accept that 1 in 5 teens in the U.S. do not care much about the video platform.
YouTube inspires people
The videos shared on YouTube have a viral power. This is evident as the Ice Bucket Challenge videos that were added to the platform brought in more than one billion views due to the platform.
