Brief Explanation Of YouTube
Over the years I'm sure we all have watched YouTube to watch music, television episodes, movies, do it yourself clips etc... In other words pretty much whatever you wanted to view or access on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Often times content is watched on the computer, tablet or even an android device. But thru all that viewing if you are like me have you ever sat and wondered exactly how did YouTube ever come about?
Genesis of YouTube
In brief Ebay employees created a program where by an individual could upload created content or videos to be able to share them with others online. I'm sure as you can imagine that was more than likely an amazing concept having the ability to upload and share videos. But the best of YouTube genesis story is not finished.

YouTube New Domain
As you can figure with any new product or content it needs a name. In Febuary 15, 2005 the internet domain name was activated as what we have all come to love and know by our use as www.youtube.com or as we have come to know it as YouTube.
Now you are up to date briefly the genesis of YouTube on Febuary 15, 2005 but what about the growth was it stagnant or was there a big boom or demand for YouTube? Well the growth came rather rapidly because during the summer of 2006 it was considered the fastest growing site. How so? This new domain www.youtube.com at that time had uploads of more than 65,000 of video content as well as over 100 million videos per day in July alone.
I guess as you can see by the numbers www.youtube was very popular from it's inception since it was ranked number five by ALEXA as one of the most popular websites at that time surpassing Myspace in the rate of growth for websites. To go along with that #5 ranking Nielsen average www.youtube.com at 20 million visitors a month.
