What a world we live in today, it’s hard to imagine but there was a time when video sharing as we know it today simply did not exist! Today Youtube officially turns 10 years old
Since it launched in 2005, the video sharing site has not only amassed worldwide exposure but it has changed the lives of millions of people, giving the world access to visual information on a scale not seen since the internet itself began.
From humble beginnings YouTube was founded in 2005 by three former PayPal employees – Steve Chen, Chad Hurley and Jawed Karim.
The very first video ever uploaded on YouTube was simply entitled “Me at the zoo” which showed a man standing in front of an Elephant enclosure at a zoo.
The man in the video was actually YouTube’s co-founder Jawed Karim.
One year later in 2006 and Google bought YouTube for $1.65 billion
YouTube is now the second largest search engine in the world and processes over 3 billion searches a month. YouTube receives over 1 billion unique monthly visitors which means that nearly 1 out of every 2 internet users are on YouTube.
If YouTube were a country, it would be the third largest in the world after China and India.
