Most of us agree that the internet is a great way of entertainment. It gives us anything we want within a matter of seconds. You want a car insurance quote? You Got it. You need tickets to the game? You got it. Anything and everything you could ever want with the flick of a switch. Who would've ever thought? I'm assuming 99% of the people reading this know the brand name "YouTube". Its become a huge hit at lightning speed. Why?
The reason YouTube is so popular is because it was the first recognized video site. Everybody loves video and it shows. You're able to record and upload your 10 minute video for the whole world to see. Everybody engages in it from the shady sales guy promising you thousands of dollars without lifting a finger, to the mom's video of her daughter's first birthday party to share with family. Its endless and entertaining. As a matter of fact major companies are starting to invest huge amounts of money producing YouTube commercials.
Its no secret the real power of YouTube is that's its free. You don't even have to register if you don't care about to uploading videos, rating or comment on videos that you watch. If you want to enjoy those features you have to sign up for a membership which is free. So in the long run it's a win, win situation for everyone. They say that YouTube is the second most searched engine, behind Google.
When it comes down to uploading your videos, YouTube makes it as easy as it gets. Even people who don't have the greatest computer skills can easily upload and share a video on YouTube. You simply record your video with a cell phone, or video camera. Then you load the software into the video editing software that most all computers come equipped with and you upload it to YouTube. You can upload as many videos as you want giving it even more appeal. Free entertainment on demand is what YouTube delivered and we embraced it with open arms.
