YouTube was launched in February 2005.when three former employees of the Paypal company – Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim – got together and created it after they experienced difficulty sharing a couple of videos with each other after attending a party.

The domain was activated on February 14, 2005 and almost a month later, on April 23, it was uploaded the first video to the platform called “Me at the Zoo”. It was a matter of time before everyone started uploading content and sharing links through other social networks like MySpace.

One of the big companies that saw the potential of YouTube was the Nike brand, which uploaded an advertisement starring Ronaldinho, which made other big companies turn to YouTube and feel attracted.

Such was the great reception by Internet users of YouTube that by December 2005 the platform went from 50 million visits a day to 250 million views after a channel uploaded the musical clip Lazy Sunday, originally broadcast on Saturday Night Live.
