The day YouTube started – level 3


On February 14, 2005, the domain was registered by three co-founders.

The trio initially wanted to create a video dating website where users could upload their videos to find potential matches. However, as they encountered difficulties finding people interested in posting their videos, they decided to change their idea and focus on a more general video-sharing platform.

With this shift, they unknowingly prepared the way for a new era of digital creativity and self-expression.

One of the first videos ever uploaded to the platform was titled “Me at the Zoo,” and it featured one of the co-founders at the zoo.

In the years since its start, YouTube has become a global platform for countless creators and influencers. It forever changed the way people access, create, and share video content.

Difficult words: match (a person who suits you), encounter (to meet), influencer (a person who promotes a product on YouTube).
