YouTube rewinds 2015 highlights

YouTube has launched YouTube Rewind  in an ode to all the videos that were trending in 2015.

This year’s top trending YouTube videos show that Singaporeans prefer to share and view lighthearted content with videos like Mediacorp’s “Unbelievable I so stunned like vegetable” and Night Owl Cinematics’ takes on Singaporean life topping the rankings.

Other videos that were popular included heavier moments of remembrance such as remembering nation’s founding father with “A Tribute to Mr Lee Kuan Yew”.

Another news event that plucked at Singaporeans’ heartstrings — the heroic act in Foreign Worker Saves Baby in Singapore— deservedly went viral.

In the past year alone, watch-time on YouTube increased by 50%, while the hours of content uploaded increased by 90%.

The majority of YouTube’s views in Singapore (60%) come from mobile devices, showing the mobile-first preference of Singaporean viewers.
