YouTube reaches the grand old-age of 5!
Posted By admin On February 15, 2012 @ 11:19 am In Videos | No Comments
This week, YouTube celebrated its 5th birthday, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to pay homage to a site which has revolutionised the way people share videos and broadcast themselves online.
Here are some interesting facts and figures about YouTube you might not know:
It’s hard to believe when you look at those statistics that the site has only been in existence for a mere 5 years, as YouTube has completely changed the way people can access video online.
Not only this, but YouTube has made it possible for ordinary people to reach a worldwide audience they would normally not have been able to connect with – which makes it a very powerful marketing tool in the right hands.
Furthermore, YouTube has actually helped propel aspiring musicians to fame over the last few years. Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber was discovered through his YouTube channel, and even the almighty Lady Gaga first tried to launch herself via YouTube before she was able to secure her first record deal.
Through YouTube you can literally promote yourself and your company to the world, without having to spend a fortune on expensive advertising campaigns.
So, I’d like to wish YouTube a happy 5th birthday and I look forward to seeing where the next 5 years the site will take us.
