Even though Youtube’s birthday is on the 14th of February, today is kind of an important day to mention as well.
5 years ago, on the 23rd of April the first video was uploaded to the site. Like you can see below, the video ‘Me at the Zoo’ isn’t really interesting but still this video started Youtube’s revolution! Jawed Karim, the man you can see on the video, is the founder of Youtube.
By July 2006, more than 65,000 videos were uploaded to the site every day. In October that same year Google acquired Youtube for $1.65 billion.
And today no numbers are needed to show the success of Youtube, it has become a daily habit!
