Video broadcasting site YouTube is celebrating its fifth birthday today.
While celebrating 5th birthday, YouTube says it is receiving 2 Billion views per day. Five years ago, YouTube’s founders launched the first beta version of YouTube.com in May, with a simple mission: give anyone a place to easily upload their videos and share them with the world. Whether you were an aspiring filmmaker, a politician, a proud parent, or someone who just wanted to connect with something bigger, YouTube became the place where you could broadcast yourself.
In a blog post YouTube wrote, “What started as a site for bedroom vloggers and viral videos has evolved into a global platform that supports HD and 3D, broadcasts entire sports seasons live to 200+ countries. We bring feature films from Hollywood studios and independent filmmakers to far-flung audiences. Activists document social unrest seeking to transform societies, and leading civic and political figures stream interviews to the world.”
YouTube has launched YouTube Five Year’s Channel to celebrate its birthday. In this channel you can share your memorable moments, stories and more.
Happy Birthday YouTube :)
