We tried to make top video lists for as many countries as possible based on available information. YouTube is popular globally, with 80% of views coming from outside of the United States. Our global list is also representative of what people all around the world were watching in 2012.
There’s no exact formula, but popular videos tend to have three key characteristics. They’re entertaining or informative in some way, they’re something that you want to share with other people, and they come from a channel with more videos like it.
Why did you decide to make your own YouTube Rewind video and what went into the making of this video?
We worked with 60+ creators in 10 locations around the world (along with 30 goats) to celebrate the work of the great creators and top moments this year on YouTube.
