YouTube celebrate 7th birthday


Recommended Posts

Exactly 7 years to the day, a website called YouTube launched, created by ex-workers of Paypal. Within a few months it was clear the site was going to be massive, with a huge leap in users, uploads and views. Google decided to gobble up YouTube for a huge sum of $16bn, ensuring that the video sharing site wasn't obliterated by it's growing user base. With Google's resources, the site has become a springboard for tutorial sites such as eHow. The popularity of YouTube can be seen by looking at the amount of views that Jusin Beiber's "Baby" has accumulated.


Or, every second, one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube.
