This Day in History: Youtube Founded (February 14, 2005)


Youtube is now one of the most prolific video sharing sites on the web, and it all began after being founded on Valentine’s Day in 2005.

Nearly every type of video can be found on Youtube from pet videos, news stories, reviews of media, TV episodes and movies, random mixes and much more.

The video site, now owned by Google, has millions and millions of users—in fact, some videos get millions of millions of views.

Most videos that go “viral,” where they are shared widely through social media and e-mail, originate on Youtube.
