The main purpose of the site is to watch videos of anything on there. YouTube makes money bar allowing other companies to buy space for advertisement.
This was the first logo for YouTube, It was the most famous logo, and it lasted from 2005-2011.
The main logo changed a little when YouTube added their slogan.
Later YouTube removed their slogan and darkened the red on the Tube part. That lasted from 2011-2013.
YouTube was made for people to broadcast them self and upload videos. YouTube is now used for any kind of video you can think of. You can find funny thing or can watch something educational. YouTube keeps people coming because of all the videos that are uploaded for people to watch.
On December 2013 YouTube made the red lighter and changed the You a little. This is still the same logo used today.
