The day YouTube started – level 1


On February 14, 2005, three men start a new website. The name is The three men want to make a website for people who want to meet a new partner. This idea is not very popular because people don’t want to put their videos on this website.

The three men change their idea. They want to make a website with different videos. It is a good idea. More and more people start to use the website.

In the next years, YouTube becomes very popular. Today, many people use this website. They make videos. They watch videos too.

Difficult words: website (a place on the internet with information about something), popular (when something is popular, many people like it), different (not the same).

What do you think was the key factor that allowed YouTube to become so popular?
