YouTube definitely is the place to post a video. About 2 million views per day. What made it so successful? What way do you think YouTube would be different if it wasn't bought out by Google?

YouTube facilitated the process of uploading videos to the Internet which allowed a lot of newbs to start uploading videos to stroke their egos, so I guess that is what made YouTube so successful. Also, Google's acquisition of YouTube made YouTube a huge success.

YouTube takes care of the front and back end of everything, it is so simple to do anything on there.

Piracy did it all for youtube and still does.

People wanted a place to watch tv shows for free...so people uploaded them to youtube.

But the bigger one was people uploading music videos and what not to youtube. I think this lead to the explosive growth for youtube.

In addition to the other good answers ... the key word is FREE!!!

Would facebook, skype, twitter ... etc. have been as successful if people had to pay to use their products/services? I feel the answer would've been NO!

Human beings for the most part are Social by Nature. Social Media/Networking for FREE is almost like PR0N, well kind of =0p...
