60 hour's worth of video is uploaded to YouTube every minute, the video-sharing site has revealed.

Google-owned YouTube, which revealed the news in a blog post, also revealed this is 30 percent up on the 48 hours per minute in May last year.

"Since the dawn of YouTube, we've been sharing the hours of video you upload every minute. In 2007 we started at six hours, then in 2010 we were at 24 hours, then 35, then 48, and now...60 hours of video every minute, an increase of more than 30 percent in the last eight months," YouTube said in the blog.

Furthermore, YouTube also revealed the number of videos viewed on the site exceeds four billion every day across the world.

"That's up 25 percent in the last eight months and the equivalent of more than half the world's population watching a video every day, the same number as there are $1 bills in circulation, the same as number of years since there was water on Mars...it's a big number, and you're making it bigger every day."

YouTube has also created onehourpersecond.com, a dedicated website which aims to show what else happens around the world while videos are being uploaded to YouTube.

In December, YouTube rolled out a new look, which was designed to make the site easier to navigate. A dark gray sidebar was introduced on the on the left-hand side of the web page that allows web users to see the channels they are subscribed too, as well a slinks to popular and trending channels.
