What is Youtube?

Some of you may not really know about Youtube and maybe just watch the videos that you like, then switch to another videos and finish. I don't think people are interested to know more details about Youtube, what is the function, when its being establish, who are the founder and so on when they are using Youtube. Even if there may not be much. Entertainment is the most favoured by people when they access into Youtube. 

Youtube actually is the video sharing website which is created by the three former Paypal employees in February 2005 known as Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim.  The ideas to designed the Paypal logo come out by Hurley after he was reading a Wired article about the online payment and e-mailing the start up in search of a job. Youtube allows users to upload, view and share the videos even in public. Anyone can register and watch the videos from this website. The person who have register to this website can upload the videos as many as they want because there are no limitations or policy are charged. So that, unregistered people also can watch the videos which have been uploaded to the Youtube. Not only uploading the videos, people also can download the videos from the Youtube if they want to.

Have you ever wondered what is the beginning of Youtube? How this website become more and more popular and accessible to the public? The first ever Youtube video uploaded is a video of Jawed Karim himself "Me at the zoo" which is taken by Yakow Lapitsky at the San Diego Zoo in front of the elephant enclosure going on about long trunks. What is very interesting, it shows racked up a very healthy 4282,497 viewers since its online debut on April 23, 2005.  Starting with this videos until now, we can see the high rate of video uploading in Youtube. We also can enjoy a variety of interesting video provided by Youtube and share with many people. So that, people have many option to choose whether they want to upload or download a music, game, drama and so on. Now, lets we see the history of Youtube .

Service provided by Youtube give many advantages and benefits to people, but at the same time there are some issues arising from this site. Since Youtube name registered on Valentine's Day 2005, a confusion arise with the name.  Youtube name caused a huge misunderstanding for Universal Tube & Reform Equipment based in Perrysburg, Ohio. According to them, "" was overwhelmed with traffic from people that tried to spell the video site's name phonetically. The uploading of videos may containing defamation, pornography,  violence , entertainment and so on. So that, the manufacturing company sued Youtube claiming its business was damage by the video site. However, the claims were dismissed and after the insident that company move their site business to "" to avoid confusion .  For the original is a video-themed landing page for bad spellers.
