The way we consume video is changing fast. Rather than gathering around the TV to watch our favourite shows, we’re gathering in virtual communities to share both short- and long-form video tailored exactly to our in-the-moment wants and needs.
YouTube’s first video was uploaded on April 23, 2005. It has been watched more than 45 million times. The content? A young man at the zoo observing that elephants have very long trunks.
Of course, YouTube content has become much more sophisticated since 2005, but the network still offers a platform in which everyone from kids to major brands can develop a loyal subscriber base.
