What is YouTube
Youtube is a free video sharing website that was launched to allow people to share their own videos.
Today users are able to watch political debates, instructional videos much like the one you’re watching right now, music videos, listen to music from your generation, watch full length classic movies, cooking programs and so much more.
Basically whatever you’re interested in, you can find a video about it on YouTube.
In addition to watching videos that others have uploaded, you can also create your own channel to upload your very own videos to share.
All for free.
