YouTube appeared in 2005 in San Bruno. It was created by former PayPal employees. The first video is a 19 second video from the zoo.

The platform was adapted for the Russian language in 2007. YouTube now ranks third in the world in terms of traffic. More than 4 million visitors visit the site every day.
A sharp impetus for the growth of YouTube traffic was the daily giveaway of iPod Nano 4Gb players, which was organized with funds from investors. The number of visits to the site increased from 50 million in December to 250 million in January 2006. This was also facilitated by the download of a video clip, shown in the next issue of the musical and humorous program Saturday Night Live on the NBC channel.
In May, analytics company Alexa Internet reported that Youtube.com had 2 billion daily traffic, making it the 10th most visited site in the United States.
MySpace, feeling that YouTube is losing huge profits, banned links to video hosting and then opened its own service for downloading and sharing videos. But he was never destined to become successful.
