THE HISTORY OF YOUTUBE
Youtube is a video sharing website on which users can upload and share videos, and uses Adobe
Flash Video technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie
clips, TV clips, and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short
original videos. Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals. Youtube has
come a long way its first ever video was about a boy at the zoo it featured youtube co-founder
Jawed Karim making a bad joke, since its launch, there have been cases of collective & individual
power-shifting as a result of YouTube. This link will show the first video ever to be posted on
Unregistered users can watch the videos, while registered users are permitted to upload an
unlimited number of videos.The site grew rapidly, and in July 2006 the company announced that
more than 65,000 new videos were being uploaded every day, and that the site was receiving 100
million video views per day.According to data published by market research company comScore,
YouTube is the dominant provider of online video in the United States, with a market share of
around 43 percent and more than six billion videos viewed in January 2009. It is estimated that
20 hours of new videos are uploaded to the site every minute, and that around three quarters of
the material comes from outside the United States. It is also estimated that in 2007 YouTube
consumed as much bandwidth as the entire Internet in 2000. In March 2008, YouTube's
bandwidth costs were estimated at approximately US$1 million a day. Alexa ranks YouTube as the
fourth most visited website on the Internet, behind Google, Yahoo! and Facebook.
Before the launch of YouTube in 2005, there were few easy methods available for ordinary
computer users who wanted to post videos online. With its simple interface, YouTube made it
possible for anyone with an Internet connection to post a video that a worldwide audience could
watch within a few minutes. The wide range of topics covered by YouTube has turned video
sharing into one of the most important parts of Internet culture.
Youtube has changed the way people social and interact with each other, and most noticebly it
has launched many peoples careers people have been discovered through Youtube some of the
most famous people we know have been discovered from youtube, for example singers like "
charice pempengco", Esmee Denters, not only singers have found true fame and careers from
youtube makeup artist Lauren Luke her videos have been watched more than 31 million times A
brief BBC interview with Luke for a local Tyneside news programme has been seen by more than
2.2 million people, becoming one of the most viewed BBC clips on YouTube worldwide. Later this
year Nintendo is launching a new game for its DS console in which the main character is an avatar
of Luke.In March a major New York cosmetics company will launch Luke's own global makeup line.
"It is entirely possible," says the YouTube spokesman Ollie Rickman, "that she is the most viewed
makeup artist in the world. These are just small examples of how popular youtube and these are
just some of the ways the audience benefits because they can upload there own home made
videos and they can also keep up with the latest music videos.
Although youtube is one of the most popular websites in the media industry, it does have its
negative sides people have the freedom to post up any video they like which could lead to people
uploading videos that discriminate and the problem is youtube does not censure every single
video online becuase there is to many of them. Also one thing to notice is a lot of musci videos
are posted up on youtube and viewers can leave comments bad or good but its became a come
trend that people have started, swearing and writting hatefull messeages to each other when
someone does like agree with an artists music for example i am a Beyonce fan but i have noticed
each time i go view one of her videos there is always people leaving comments that are
negetative for example her new song with Lady Gaga " video phone" people dont like the fact that
they have collaborated because both females musical styles are way to different its like fans of
both artists spend there time on the internet hating each other just because someone stated an
opion about Beyonce or Lady Gaga, they have lost the importance of it all when people go on
youtube is so that they can enjoy watching their favourite video but instead people are busy
starting cebor wars. The video so far since its release it has had " 357,526 views and half of these
views are due to the fact people will be sending messeges back and forth to each other about how
much they dont like the artist or how much they dislike the song and the rest will be watching the
video just because they are true fans below is an example of a youtuber comment about the
"You nasty girl, you nasty, you trashy
You classless girl, you sleazy, you freaky
N-A-S-T-Y ya nasty, F-R-E-A-K ya freaky"
Girl where's your P-R-I-D-E, put some clothes on girl" THIS WAS A COMMENT LEFT BY A HATEFUL
VIEWER ON YOUTUBE ABOUT THE SINGER BEYONCE They used her lyrics from a previous song
"Nasty Girl" where she is singing about how women should not walk around with baberly any
clothes on so this utuber took the lyrics for that song to portray " Beyonce as one of the women
she was singing about in one of her old songs that she done when she was still in a girl group.
"this may have been the stupidest thing i have ever seen. ever. ive seen alot of stupid things. and
you know what im a beyonce AND lady gaga fan but this sucks. song sucks. video sucks. what
happened to these girls goen and prancen around in there underwear while moaning a song
Youtube has became sought of like a place where people can say things about other people
because they know they can get away with it. YouTube has also faced criticism over the offensive
content in some of its videos. Although YouTube's terms of service forbid the uploading of
material likely to be considered inappropriate, YouTube does not check every video before it goes
online. Controversial areas for videos have included Holocaust denial and the Hillsborough
Disaster , in which 96 football fans from Liverpool were crushed to death in 1989, conspiracy
theories and religion; despite all this youtube relys on its users to flag any inappropriate content.
Youtube has branched, for example so many people use software like frostwire, limewire, itunes
etc but youtube have come up with there own downloading software its called "YouTube
Downloader" is software that allows you to download videos from youTube, google Video, yahoo
Video, and many others and convert them to other video formats.The program is easy to use, just
specify the URL for the video you want to download and click the Ok button, it also allows you to
convert downloaded videos for Ipod, Iphone, PSP, Cell Phone, Windows Media, XVid and MP3.
youtube has developed in many ways and has changed the way people view the media, it has
became another form of journalism people find out information about someone then they post it
up, anytime someone wants to know about a certain story they can either visit certain blogs,
twitter or just simply go on youtube. Youtube and viewers in there millions all over the world
everyday so many people post up orginal videos of anything they want. They can post up video of
themselves making jokes, reinvernting famous music videos for example 2009s sensation has
