YouTube came out in February 2005.when three former employees of the Paypal company – Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim – came together and created it after they experienced difficulties sharing a couple of videos with each other after attending a party.

The domain was activated on February 14, 2005 and almost a month later, on April 23, the first clip was uploaded to the platform called “Me at the Zoo”. It was a matter of time before everyone started uploading content and sharing the links through other social networks like MySpace.

One of the big companies that saw the potential of YouTube was the Nike brand, which uploaded an advertisement starring Ronaldinho, which made other big companies look at YouTube and feel attracted.

Such was the great reception of Internet users on YouTube that by December 2005 the platform went from 50 million visits a day to 250 million views after a channel uploaded the music clip Lazy Sunday, originally broadcast on Saturday Night Live.

For the following year, in 2006, the site was bought by the internet giant, Google, for a value of 1.65 billion dollars. At that time, 100 million videos were viewed daily and 65,000 clips were added daily. They also signed deals with record labels to be able to play music videos.

For the United States, one of the more sensitive issues It is that of school shootings, which is why YouTube has been in the eye of the hurricane more than once for hosting content filmed by the attackers, as was the case with the Virginia Tech massacre, when Cho Seung-Hui, the attacker, previously uploaded a speech to the facts.

More recently, following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, concerns have also been raised about how the platform enables the content monetization which can be misleading and risky for the population.
