History of YouTube
Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim were three important factors in the creation of You tube. These three men first worked at Paypal, a newly growing company. You tube was created in California based of the idea of how hard it is to share videos over email. They wanted to help by creating YouTube. There first Beta version was released in 2005.Just a year later in 2006, it became one of the top 10 websites in the world.

Progression of You Tube
In the first year, 2005 it looked mildly different than it does today in 2016. The first website platform for youtube had very little activity and very little features such as tagging and commenting. You couldn’t even search because there was no search bar even created yet. Later youtube thought it would be necessary to have a search bar. After this they did indeed add commenting and tagging. Youtube finnally surpased the popular cnn.com in the top ten activity list in 2006, just a year after. Youtube got to this achievement once most homes went Broadband or went wireless(Smart devices). Once in 2006 people would upload all together an astonishing 65,000 + videos. In 2006 youtube signed a marketing and advertising deal with NBC. Youtube would display ads for NBC. More companies found out about this and joined in(CBS, Sony, Universal).Today youtube has changed from so little to so much. They have many new sections, such as Sports, Gaming, Movies, Tv, News, Live, Spotlight, and 360° videos. It also has trending and youtube red. When this special site first started there was no search as there is today. You can now subscribe and comment. Now you can be anyone anywhere and still watch youtube.
