«Gangnam Style» hits 1 billion (1,000,000,000) views on YouTube

Blog Post: Gangnam Style hits a bilion views

Viral Video
The music video "Gangnam Style» from the artist PSY, was a success from the moment it was posted on YouTube. Immediately became a viral video, everyone spoke of him in the social networks, everyone was curious to know about thar, and the views began to grow exponentially, the normal media outside the Internet also began to take interest in this success: radio played the music, the news channels on TV spoke of him, like MTV played the video, gave interviews, had invitations to attend events, and the views continued to grow by tens of millions per day.

Psy makes history in Internet
He had for some time taken the place of the most viewed video on YouTube, but on December 21, 2012, hits 1,000,000,000 (billion) views on YouTube, and became the first YouTube video to reach that number of views . Interestingly this date (December 21, 2012) is the date that the Mayan calendar predicted the end of the world, the world has not ended, but this day is marked by this on the Internet.

1,000,000,000 views
The video was published on July 15, 2012, and took only 5 months and 6 days to reach one billion views. In November of the same year, four months later, exceeded the most viewed video on YouTube that belonged to Justin Bieber with the song 'Baby'. Sometimes with a highest number of views and other times with less, took only 156 days to reach 1,000,000,000 which gives an average of 6.4 million page views per day. The number will continue to increase, but having already one seventh of the world population watched the video on YouTube, and not everyone has access to the Internet, there should be not a lot more people with access to the Internet that has not yet seen the video.

«Gangnam Style» chega aos mil milhões (1,000,000,000) de visualizações no YouTube

Blog Post: Gangnam Style atinge mil milhes

Vídeo Viral
O video musical «Gangnam Style» do artista PSY, foi um êxito a partir do momento que foi publicado no YouTube. Desde logo tornou-se num video viral, todos falavam dele nas redes sociais, todos ficavam curiosos para conhecer, as visualizações começaram a crescer de forma exponencial, e os meios dos media comuns fora da rede também começaram a ter interesse por este sucesso: rádios passavam a música, era falado nos telejornais, canais como a MTV passavam o videoclip, entrevistas, convites para presenças, e as visualizações continuaram a crescer ás dezenas de milhões por dia.

Psy faz história na Internet
Já tinha a algum tempo tomado o lugar do vídeo mais visto do YouTube, mas no dia 21 de Dezembro de 2012, atingiu 1,000,000,000 (mil milhões) de visualizações no YouTube, e tornou-se no primeiro vídeo do YouTube a atingir esse número de visualizações. Curiosamente esta data (21 de Dezembro de 2012) é a data em que o calendário dos Mayas previa o fim do mundo, o mundo não acabou, mas este dia fica marcado por este feito na Internet.

1,000,000,000 de visualizações
O vídeo foi publicado a 15 de Julho de 2012, e levou apenas 5 meses e 6 dias a atingir os mil milhões de visualizações. Em Novembro do mesmo ano, 4 meses depois, ultrapassou o vídeo mais visto no YouTube que pertencia a Justin Bieber com a música «Baby». Entre épocas com maior número de visualizações e outras com menor, levou apenas 156 dias a chegar aos 1,000,000,000 o que dá uma média de 6,4 milhões de visualizações por dia. O número continuará a aumentar, mas tendo já supostamente um sétimo da população mundial já assistido ao vídeo no YouTube, e nem todos têm acesso à Internet, já não deve haver muito mais gente com acesso à Internet que ainda não tenha visto o vídeo.

Compact camera redefined
Want a camera that fits in your pocket or purse, yet offers the quality and performance of one nearly twice its size? The NEX-7 is it—complete with a massive 24.3MP APS-C sensor and a through-the-lens OLED electronic viewfinder. Choose from a range of available lenses to achieve the perfect composition, then give the conveniently-placed Tri-Navi™ dials a spin for instant manual control. With Full HD video and up to 10 fps, the NEX-7 delivers the professional performance of a DSLR in a gorgeous, easy-to-carry package you can take anywhere.

Best-in-Class Resolution
Bigger sensors equal better pictures. The NEX-7 boasts a huge, 24.3MP APS-C sensor—the same size sensor used in most DSLRs—for ultra-high resolution and incredibly-detailed photos that make for gorgeous enlargements. With a sensor 13 times larger than the average compact camera, the NEX-7 offers the image quality and performance of a DSLR in about half the size and weight.

10 Photos in One Second
Whether shooting a sequence of your preschooler's somersault, or the game-changing instant when ball meets bat, you're sure to capture the most critical moments with up to 10 fps continuous shooting at full 24.3MP resolution (exposure and focus fixed at the first frame). It's ideal for high-speed sports photography or capturing the fast, fleeting moments other cameras miss. Standard continuous shooting is also available at up to 2.5 fps.

Make HD Movie Magic
Record crystal-clear HD movies in super-smooth 60p, standard 60i or richly-cinematic 24p—all at Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution (records in 29-minute segments). Shoot in the industry-standard AVCHD™ codec for stunning fast-motion video with reduced distortion, or choose the web-friendly MP4 format for easy uploading to sites like Facebook® and YouTube™.

Control at Your Fingertips
Looking for a quick and intuitive way to set aperture, exposure, ISO and more—faster than ever? Three Tri-Navi control dials put everything at your fingertips for convenient manual control of aperture, exposure, ISO and more. You see the results instantly through the viewfinder or on the camera's tiltable 3.0" LCD. It's the perfect feature for experienced photographers who want immediate, hands-on access to up to three controls at once.

World's First OLED Viewfinder
There's never been anything quite like the Tru-Finder™ OLED electronic viewfinder, which brings eye-level, through-the-lens viewing to the NEX-7. Boasting 2359K dots and a high contrast ratio for top resolution and unprecedented brightness, images pop with clarity and detail making it easier than ever to compose your shots. You can even see the results of camera adjustments in real time through the viewfinder.

Fascinating Picture Effects
Let your imagination run free with 11 in-camera creative effects. Transform ordinary portraits into colorful, high-contrast works of art with Pop Color. Get the tilt-shift photography look with Miniature effect. Try Toy Camera for a nostalgic, lo-fi feel, or make your focal point pop with Partial Color effect. Plus, experiment with Posterization, Retro Photo, Soft Focus and more for unique photos you'll love to show off.
