Vidcon > Cannes

A lot of people have been posting online about how Vidcon is the new Cannes, or Vidcon is better or more important, etc.

Well, so far we’ve seen some winners at Cannes in our daily update feeds and now a blog post from YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced at VidCon this week that the Google-owned video site now has 1.5 billion logged-in monthly users.

Wojcicki also introduced the new VR180 format, which YouTube developed with fellow Google company Daydream, saying that it enable more creators to produce videos for virtual reality even if they don’t have the capability to film in 360 degrees.
