Hard to believe that YouTube is a mere six years old.  Why is it that it seems to have been around forever?  Way back in 2007, a mind-boggling 8 hours of video was uploaded every minute.  Today, that figure has jumped to 48 hours of video is uploaded per minute, or 69,120 hours per day.  And yet there are still company representatives who have the audacity to say, "We've uploaded a viral video to YouTube!"  And I say, "good luck."  Hard to tell which is more difficult - having your television advertisement stand out and become memorable or having a YouTube video go viral.  As WOMMA's Pat McCarthy observed, "We’re entering a validation era where content needs to come from trusted sources and be easily digestible."
