SoundCloud celebrated its fifth birthday Wednesday, and the Berlin-based startup marked the occasion by revealing an interesting usage data point: SoundCloud users now upload twelve hours of audio every minute, according to a blog post penned by the companyโ€™s CEO Alex Ljung.

Nowadays, people upload more than 100 hours of video per minute to the service.
