first video on YouTube

The first video on YouTube went up 15 years ago, April 23, 2005.

YouTube co-founder, Jawed Karim, published one video 18 seconds, entitled "Me at the zoo" (Me at the zoo). Since then, it has garnered over 90 million views and is still unique today video which has been uploaded to the Karim channel.

If you click to play the video, you will see in screen your face of Karim, at a young age, in the zoo, in front of the elephants.

"Okay," Karim begins. "It simply came to our notice then. The nice thing about these guys is that they really have very, very long proboscis, ”he continues. "And that's nice."

This is a very small and simple video. It has nothing to do with the YouTube videos of today. Karim's video no longer includes some "traditional" ones data, such as: "Subscribe to my channel!" or "I like it, rate it, comment on it."

He ends the video by simply saying, "And that's all we need to say." This was the first YouTube video.

A year after "Me at the zoo", Karim and the co-founders of YuuTube sold the platform to Google for $ 1,65 billion.

Today, YouTube has more than 2 billion connected users.

In recent years, YouTube has been linked to both good and bad events.

Some of the negatives: An increase in videos containing "hate speech", ie insults to certain groups of people (eg videos of prominent White House defenders), problems with some YouTubers (eg PewDiePie, one of YouTube's biggest stars accused of racism and anti-Semitism) etc.

Some of the positives: YouTube has helped promote various creators (eg Smosh, Miranda Sings, etc.), and has launched YouTube Red, a streaming service with original TV shows and Movies. Finally, it is used to highlight any content.

The content of YouTube is monitored daily by billions users.

And it all started with Karim, at the zoo!
