YouTube

By Charles Kendrick

History

February, 2005 is when Youtube was created in Northern California, south of San Francisco by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and jawed Karim.


Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawid Karim were school friends. Steve Chen was thinking” You know what guys i’m sick and tired of not being able to easily post videos on the internet it is too hard, so why don’t we do something about it”. Everyone else said”Cool ok”!

Progression

When youtube just started it only had three members on it which were Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawid Karim. The website only had links that would take you to the actual video, but the video itself wasn’t just there like it is nowadays. Something that changed was their online auction link that they had, but that we don’t have now. There also used to be a online dating site that youtube had a link of on their website, back when it was first created. Today there are people broadcasting themselves and adding more and more new music videos, and trends. Now everyone can enjoy youtube because now youtube is localised in 75 countries and available in 61 languages.

Impact

Like I said the reason why Steve, Chad, and Karim Made youtube is because they thought that It was too hard for people to just post things on the internet, because it was too many steps. So because of that they made their website which was youtube!

Youtube has opened new doors for talented individuals looking to be discovered and brought people together all ever the globe. Youtube has revolutionized so much, Now you can travel around the world with just 1 small little click.

Youtube has also revolutionized from entertainment to education. So now parents can educate their children off YouTube .


YouTube has a program called the nonprofit program. With donation cards your viewers can donate right to your organization right from your video.

How would the world be with out YouTube

Without YouTube I think that the world will be fine. I think that it wouldn't be any problem if they had to close YouTube right now so that no one can get to because someone will end up making something the same, or close to it. Also besides that we have other apps that is already like YouTube, like vevo.

Popular products YouTube made

YouTube has made videos about current trends that update every time a new trend comes. Like the whip and nae nae, and the dab and popular dances and fashion trends.
