Business Description

YouTube is a video-sharing website that displays a wide variety of video content, including movie clips, TV clips, and music videos, as well as amateur content such as video blogging and original videos. The site was, created by three former PayPal employees, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. According to multiple sources, the inspiration for YouTube came after Janet Jackson’s 2004 Super Bowl incident. Jawed Karim was seeking to view the incident, but experienced difficulty finding a clip online. YouTube was acquired by Google in 2006.
