YouTube is a web-service that allows
anybody to post their video files and share them with other
people. YouTube was founded in 2005 by the authors of
PayPal, an internet payment service. The first public
version came out in November 2005. The project grew
steadily, and in the beginning of 2006 it hosted about
65,000 video files. In 2007 YouTube was receiving the
highest traffic out of all other websites. In October 2006
YouTube was acquired by Google for 1,6 billion dollars. And
it should be considered as a great deal for Google, because
YouTube's advertising returned about 200 million dollars per
year for that moment.
