Google seems to have grand plans for YouTube in 2011. YouTube is now six years old and today after 6 years, it is one of the most popular websites on the internet with which gets nearly 2 billion visitors / views each day. Google acquired YouTube few years ago with the intention of monetizing this website. Though the initial years after the acquisition were bit slow in terms of the revenue it generated for Google, today over 35 hours of video is being uploaded every minute. Many even questioned whether it was worth the money to invest so much money on YouTube by Google.
Google has been keeping YouTube as its pet project despite all the criticism it received from various quarters. However, today no one will doubt the prudence of Google in acquiring and holding on to YouTube. Google continues to surprise us and this time it manages again to surprise us by its massive hiring spree for YouTube.
As per one of the latest posts in Google blog, this company is planning to expand YouTube massively in 2011. While we are still hearing internet giants downsizing their workforce as a way of dealing with the after effects of recession. For example even Yahoo announced recently about cutting down its workforce recently. This being the scenario Google has announced that it is planning to “grow the number of people working at YouTube by more than 30%”.
