Video Streaming , Social Networks

YouTube is a video-sharing website, created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005 and owned by Google since late 2006, on which users can upload, view and share videos. The company is based in San Bruno, California, and uses Adobe Flash Video and HTML5 technology to display a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media video content, including video clips, TV clips, and music videos, and amateur content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos.

Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, Hulu, and other organizations offer some of their material via YouTube, as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can watch videos, and registered users can upload an unlimited number of videos. Videos considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old. YouTube, LLC was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion in November 2006 and now operates as a Google subsidiary.

Share whatever you want. Seriously, whatever you want. Oh except not porn and violence and stuff like that. But videos of you singing Lady Gaga songs to your nine cats? Or burning off your own hair? Or eating ghost pepppers? Go for it. But remember, you will get trolled in the comments.

YouTube is pretty good for finding pretty much any music or video that you want to see for free. There's some pretty good content that would be hard to find elsewhere - if you can't find a video, you can pretty much bet it's on YouTube. There are some people who make good content and there are lots of good tutorials for being crafty.

With that said, there are some things that I definitely dislike about YouTube, the main one being that somehow all of the idiots of the internet always end up in the comments section of every video.

Another pet peeve is Vevo. YouTube is supposed to be an international website, but Vevo is only available to North American users, and it seems like more and more videos are now Vevo videos. I live in North America myself, but on principle, I really don't like the fact that Vevo is taking over such a big percentage of YouTube - I have several international friends who complain about it as well.

The design they switched to a couple of years ago is kind of hard to use in my opinion, and I don't like that it's not very easy to make a playlist/change a playlist/manipulate a playlist how you want it, which is why I tend to use Spotify for all my music needs now.

YouTube is still one of the most popular video websites, however, and it's not without merit. I personally use it as a last resort because I just don't like it very much, but it is as popular as it is for a reason.

I don't think there will be anyone in the world who wouldn't love this website! It has got everything! From vines to music videos and from educational videos to pure entertainment. In short, this site is amazing!!!

Hulu

I'm a cord cutter and love hulu. They do a great job of providing up to date programming for most shows and the service is quite reliable. Their original programming isn't quite as good as their competitors, but pretty darn close. My main gripes are, 1) No CBS of CW shows, so I have to use differ...

Netflix

by Adam Lowe

So, there isn't much to be said other than subscribing to Netflix is almost a necessity if you enjoy television. Their original programming is amazing and they have a great backlog of older television shows and some movies. The only thing I am disappointed about is that their movie selection is s...

I have been a GQ magazine reader for years and their website has just as high quality as the print publication. Now, specifically, they are doing a great job covering the 2017 political climate in a fair and unbiased way.

The History of Byzantium

by Carol W.

Good follow up to the History of Rome. Clear Narrative, I like that he generally sticks to mid-length episodes, but alters the length when needed.
