Many of us create content on YouTube or we love YouTube. But how much or how little we know about those with whom we have a good love. Today I appeared in front of you with some interesting information on YouTube.
What is YouTube?
The current era is the era of online and information technology. Among the thousands of platforms in this age of information technology, the two social media that have united millions of people around the world are YouTube and Facebook. The influence of these two social media is so far-reaching in our lives that their influence has led to the rise of what we now call traditional television channels, the state and satellite television channels. All around today, the triumph of YouTube and Facebook. Today we will discuss about YouTube. First of all, let’s talk about the birth and origin of YouTube. YouTube is an American video sharing site headquartered in San Bruno, California. In February 2005, three PayPal employees, HChad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim, founded YouTube as a dating site for young people. In 2006, world-renowned online giant Google bought it for 1.65 billion. From that day until today, YouTube is considered as an affiliate product of Google.
Do you know who is the first youtuber in the world?
Jawed Karim, one of the founding trio of YouTube, uploaded an 18-second video titled “Me at the zoo” in 2005 while standing in front of a group of elephants at the San Diego Rong Zoo. According to that, Javed Karim is the first YouTuber. However, when he first uploaded the video in May of that year, YouTube was in beta. “All right, so here we are in front of the elephants,” he says. “The cool thing about these guys is that they have really, really, really long trunks, and that’s, that’s cool. And that’s pretty much all there is to say. ” Then in November 2005, YouTube officially launched. When Google bought YouTube, Javed Karim acquired 1,33,443 shares of his stock valued at 64 million at the time. The rest of the history is present today. I shared that historic moment uploaded by Javed Karim for you to see.
