Since launching in 2005, YouTube has grown from a platform of user-generated uploads to a platform of information and entertainment, localized in 88 countries and in 76 different languages. YouTube's viewers worldwide watch 1B hours of content every single day. YouTube is changing the way consumers engage with content and receive their information.
