YouTube is an online video portal that allows users to post, rate, or watch any video clip for free. If you want to upload a video post to YouTube, you must first register with YouTube. The individual website of a YouTube user is called a YouTube channel.
YouTube is one of the most well-known Internet video portals, if not the best known. In addition to numerous registered members, YouTube is also used by several other unregistered users. Every day around 4 billion videos are viewed on YouTube. Each minute, members upload around 70 hours of video footage to the platform. Almost everyone is YouTube at the present time, but many do not know which company is actually behind this gigantic platform. And that’s none other than Google Inc. It was not founded by you, but YouTube was sold to Google a year or so after it was founded.
On YouTube you can find every kind of video imaginable, from self-shot amateur shots, self-made professional-program films, music videos, comedy shows, movie clips, or TV shows. For some time now you can find full movies on YouTube. However, not everyone is allowed to upload posts that are longer than 15 minutes in length.
YouTube is much more than an entertainment channel, but more and more a mouthpiece for individuals who want to raise awareness about personal concerns, grievances or other issues. Viewers of a video can leave comments and also rate videos with a “Like” or “I do not like” rating.
