the youtube boom
YouTube saw the light in February 2015, when three former employees of the Paypal company – Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim – got together and created it after they had difficulty sharing a couple of videos with each other after attending a party.
The domain was activated on February 14, 2005 and almost a month later, on April 23, the first clip was uploaded to the platform that was named “Me at the Zoo”. It was only a matter of time before everyone started uploading content and sharing the links through other social networks like MySpace.
One of the big companies that saw the potential of YouTube was the Nike brand, which uploaded an advertisement starring Ronaldinho, which made other big companies turn to YouTube and feel attracted.
Such it was the great reception of Internet users by YouTube that by December 2005 the platform went from 50 million visits a day to 250 million views lafter a channel uploaded the music clip Lazy Sunday, originally broadcast by Saturday night Live.
For the following year, in 2006, the site was purchased by the Internet giant, Google, for a value of 1.65 billion dollars. At that time, 100 million videos were viewed per day and 65,000 clips were added daily. They also signed agreements with record companies to be able to play music videos.
The impact of YouTube
Since it was launched, YouTube was a site that came to make a revolution not only on the Internet, but also in the way users watch content. Proof of this is the recognition that the magazine Time awarded him in November 2006 when he was named the “Invention of the Year”.
Having become the best means of dissemination, enjoying so much popularity has also put its owners in trouble, as when hosting school fights or where there is bullyingclips related to terrorism, drug trafficking or other topics considered sensitive due to their intimate content or because they show crimes such as murders and more.
For the United States, one of the most sensitive issues is that of school shootings, which is why YouTube has been in the eye of the hurricane more than once for hosting content filmed by the attackers, as was the case with the Virginia Tech massacrewhen Cho Seung-Hui, the attacker, previously uploaded a speech to the events.
More recently, following the rise of the coronavirus pandemic, concerns have also been raised about how the platform enables the monetization of content that may be misleading and risky to the public.
Although not everything is bad, because through this platform many people have been able to be recognized for their talent, as was the case of Susan Boyle, who participated in the program Britain’s Got Talent whose extract was uploaded to Youtube He managed to make the woman go from being a complete unknown to one of the most viralized, famous and acclaimed people on the internet.
