YouTube Rewind Looks Back at an Eventful 2018

YouTube Rewind Looks Back at an Eventful 2018YouTube is perhaps the biggest cultural influencer of our time. It is the place where countless memes have originated and has become a platform where an immeasurable number of content creators post what they have been working on and try to get an audience for it. YouTube Rewind is the annual video that takes a candid look at how the year went. It is an actual production that YouTube works on in order to bring the year to a close in the best way possible.
"We looked at views, likes, shares, searches, parodies, remixes and responses to identify the 10 videos that everybody talked about in 2018.", explained YouTube on its top trending videos page.
The most watched video of the year turned out to be “To Our Daughter” which was posted by Kylie Jenner. The emotional tribute video has almost eighty million views so far, which is an incredible number considering it was only released this year. The total number of views that the top ten videos of the year have gotten is 673 million. This is a highly impressive number which is made even more impressive when you realize that it is forty million more than the top ten videos were viewed last year. This means that YouTube is still growing as a platform, and a day may come when the total number of views of the videos at the top exceeds a billion!

An interesting thing to note is that while the top video of the year was released by Kylie Jenner, the other videos are an example of old school YouTube. These good old fashioned videos show us that YouTube is still the crazy place it always has been. A lot of the videos aren’t even in English which shows how much of an international platform YouTube is. YouTube rewind is a nostalgic way to look at the past year and it helps close the year off well.
