YouTube is a video-sharing website, created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005, on which users can upload, share and view videos. The company is based in San Bruno, California, and uses Adobe Flash Video and HTML5 technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content, including movie clips, TV clips, and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and short original videos. Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, although media corporations including CBS, BBC, VEVO, Hulu, and other organizations offer some of their material via the site, as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users may watch videos, and registered users may upload an unlimited number of videos. Videos that are considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users 18 years old and older. In November 2006, YouTube, LLC was bought by Google Inc. and now operates as a subsidiary of Google.
Their user base is broad in age range, 18-55, evenly divided between males and females and spans all parts of the world. Fifty-one percent of our users go to YouTube weekly or more often and 52 percent of 18-34 year-olds share videos often with friends and colleagues.
