BREAKING: YouTube Still Isn't Profitable. But It Will Be, Says Google. Again.
Officially, Google doesn’t talk about YouTube’s profitability, or lack thereof. Except, of course, when Google executives do talk about it.
Then they say that YouTube is very close to becoming profitable.
“YouTube is ‘nearing profitability and its revenue is doing quite well,’ Schmidt told journalists at the sidelines of a conference at the French university SciencesPo. ‘It looks like it’s going to be very successful,’ he said.”
Okay. So does anyone want to guess when, if ever, Google will tell us that YouTube is actually profitable?
