List: '10 Fascinating YouTube Facts That May Surprise You'

Today’s ‘List Friday’. Ever customer (or reader) responsive, I’m happy to oblige whenever someone alerts me to a list for List Friday. Last Monday darling Meg sent me a beauty: ‘10 Fascinating YouTube Facts That May Surprise You’ [1]. The preamble calls YouTube humongous. Funny, I’ve always spelt it humungous. Or, on a bad day, humungus. I think all three spellings are okay. But to avoid orthographical error, I’ll call YouTube gargantuan, behemothic, hippopotamic. Or just plain colossal. This is a list whose blurb’s as interesting as the list items: More video content’s uploaded to YouTube in 60 days than the three major US TV networks have created in 60 years. And the average YouTube user spends 15-25 minutes a day on the site. Also it links to many more astounding stats on this YouTube Statistics page [2]. As to the list itself, I’m a YouTube ignoramus (or at least newbie) so I didn’t know any of the ‘10 Fascinating Facts’. None. And especially I didn’t know what a Rickroll [3] is. So they all surprised me. How many of the 10 list facts did you know? Finally, if your YouTube appetite’s whetted by today’s list, the YouTube Wikipedia page [4] will feed you more goodies.
H/t darling Meg for sending me the link to today’s list.

Indi made up a word of her own for it recently; hunormous. X

I love the word 'hunormous'. But not nearly as much as I love Indi. xxx
