Happy Valentines Day!

2005 – YouTube, the popular video sharing website, is established by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim. The website was registered on February 14th, and didn’t officially launch until November 2005. Google bought out YouTube on October 9, 2006 for $1.65 Billion. With an upload every 20 minutes and over 1 Billion views a day, YouTube has definitely grown to a video powerhouse.
