YouTube is a video-sharing website headquartered in California, United States. The service was created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005. In November 2006, it was bought by Google for US$1.65 billion. YouTube now operates as one of Google’s subsidiaries. The site allows users to upload, view, and share videos.
Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, but media organizations like the Nigerian Television Authority, Channels TV, AIT, TVC and other organizations offer some of their material via YouTube, as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can watch videos, and registered users can upload videos to their channels.
In Nigeria, hundreds of new video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. This will continue to grow as more people get access to the internet. YouTube’s goal is to allow every person on the planet to participate by making the upload process as simple as placing a phone call. New video content will be available on any screen – in your r living room or in your pocket. And YouTube will bring together all the diverse media which matters to you, from videos of family and friends to news, music, sports, cooking and more.
In 10 of years of existence, YouTube has united hundreds of millions of people who create, share, and watch video online. In the nearest future, users will be at the center of their video experience, have more access to more information, and the world will be a smaller place.
According to Taiwo Kola Ogunlade, West Africa Communication and Public Affairs Manager of Goggle in Nigeria, “there are now more than one million channels earning revenue through the YouTube Partnership Program, in more than 30 million countries, and it’s exciting to see more Partners coming on board in Nigeria too”. Globally, partner revenue across YouTube has increased by 60% over the past year and partner revenue from mobile ad sales has tripled.
In 2014, YouTube views in Nigeria increased by 78%, while views of Nigerian content increased by 95%- a testament of the role YouTube is playing in the export of Nigerian content.
