GoPro is the industry standard sports action cameras and to demonstrate their ability to capture the world, GoPro upload videos to their YouTube channel. After joining back in March of 2009, just over 10 years ago, the company celebrated a major milestone over the weekend, hitting a whopping 2 billion views on YouTube!
That’s upwards of 7.8 thousand years of GoPro content watched across the 2,000-plus videos on the GoPro YouTube Channel.
2 billion views couldn’t have been reached without a community made up of go-getters, adrenaline-seekers, inspirational leaders, passionate sharers and loyal followers. This is the group that GoPro CEO and founder Nick Woodman wants to recognise first and foremost as the company celebrates the accomplishment.
GoPro serves as a platform for positivity, celebrating all that’s awesome in our world. We take pride in being a beacon of radness in today’s hectic world. People are amazing, and we’re proud to champion them through our content channels.GoPro CEO and founder Nick Woodman
