YouTube has launched YouTube Charts, a destination for users to see how popular videos are performing.

"What’s the latest in the all-time most viewed video smackdown between Bieber and Gaga? Is David After Dentist pwning Charlie Bit My Finger? Who grabbed more subscribers this month, ShayCarl or Annoying Orange?" writes YouTube Product Manager Matt Darby.

"These are the big questions on the lips of the YouTube community," he says. "To help answer them, we’re launching ‘YouTube Charts’ to give you a clear view of how your favorite videos and creators stack up against each other."

Users can sort the charts by time frame – today, this week, or all time. Look for more options in the future though.

YouTube intends to add more charts, and is seeking user feedback on what kinds of charts people would like to see. Examples Darby specifically mentions are "best newcomer" and "most shared video".
