YouTube is a free video sharing website that makes it easy to watch online videos. Originally created in 2005, YouTube is now one of the most popular sites on the Web, with visitors watching around 6 billion hours of video every month.
One reason YouTube is so popular is the sheer number of videos you can find. On average, 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, so there’s always something new to find! And you’ll find all kinds of videos on YouTube—adorable cats, quirky cooking demos, funny science lessons, quick fashion tips, and a whole lot more.
It’s all about user-generated content. In addition to videos from major TV networks and movie studios, you’ll find amazing and creative videos made by people around the world. And YouTube isn’t a one-way street—you can jump in, record and share your own videos, and become a part of the community.
