YouTube was created by three ex-employees of Paypal (an online-payment site), Chad Hurley, Steven Chen and Jawed Karim, and was officially launched in December 2005 after receiving funding from Sequoia Capital.
Currently, it is considered as the global leader in online video, allowing people to upload and share video clips across the internet through websites, mobile devices, blogs, and e-mail. Its videos can be informational, entertaining, or purely personal.
In November 2006, YouTube was purchased by Google for $1.65 billion.
