YouTube : An abundance of everything!

AdvantagesSomething for everyone, contains some real true gems

DisadvantagesSome users can be abusive, media player keeps sticking when site is busy

"...I'm not certain how long YouTube has been in existence, I'm really sorry that I didn't discover it before somebody recommended it to me a couple of years ago. For the as yet uninitiated, YouTube ( www.youtube.com ) is a website that contains a whole wealth of video clips uploaded by the users for sharing with the world, on every subject you can think of, plus some you can't think of as they are too bizarre. Anybody can join YouTube. All you do ..." Read review

AdvantagesEasy to use, videos on everything.

DisadvantagesOpen to abuse.

In 2006, this site which was gaining in popularity each day, was bought from the founders by Google Inc for a great sum. The site which has been going for ..." Read review

YouTube Your Future

AdvantagesMost Diverse, Dynamic collection of media on the web

DisadvantagesAddictive :D

"...but compared to the hits Youtube was receiving it had not gone to plan. So what better to do when you cant beat them, Join them or to be precise buy them out. That's exactly what Google did, in a billion dollar deal they bought Youtube from the founders, making them very rich over night, not to say that a steady income was not already emerging from Youtube already. --Popularity-- This is of course the main driving force to why it has become ..."

You've been framed, only no £250. Review with images

AdvantagesOnce-great video sharing site.

DisadvantagesGoing downhill.

"...then you probably will but...), YouTube is an online video sharing site upon which anyone can upload videos and those with an account, which is free to set up, can upload as many videos as they like and also create personal pages . There is also a lot of homemade content on the site, such as comedy songs and shows as well as music videos. In fact, quite a few people have become famous from YouTube, leading to the creation of the, highly original, ..." Read review

Not Really MyTube

AdvantagesGood if you've missed something

DisadvantagesOnly so much on there you'll care for

"...have. When it comes to YouTube though this is a completely different situation, because ever since being founded in February 2005 the site has exploded into one of the few websites on the net with a cult status. If you use the net just for Ciao then it could be understandable that you've never came across this video networking site, although those who use the internet as a staple of their lives and a means to communicate between friends will surely ..."

AdvantagesGreat Ideas, helpful and imaginitive.

DisadvantagesCan run slow and has Happy Slapping

"...or not really acceptable. However, Youtube is one the most brilliant inventions on the internet. It can be used to watch or upload videos and chat to your friends. It is used in schools, and to learn to knit and play the piano. How has it become a part of our lives and is it all roses??? ===HOW IT STARTED=== Youtube was created in February 2005, by three former PayPal workers. It was then bought in November 2006 by Google for $1.65 billion ..." Read review

Youtube: Voyeurs dream, parents nightmare

AdvantagesA plethora of fantastic videos to choose from

DisadvantagesA plethora of depraved and vile video's to choose from

"...to say, "everything that makes Youtube great is also what makes it terrible". In short, you can find anything on Youtube and there in lies the problem………….. I put a lot of thought into writing an article about Youtube, mainly because going into a piece of writing, I generally know the outcome of the review…..I either love something or hate it with varying degree's of love or vitriol. The problem with Youtube is I agree with both of those statements ..." Read review

Youtube: The Home of Video Sharing on the Internet

Advantagesfantastic resource, easy to use

Disadvantagescan be slow particularly at peak times

"...find to be truly amazing. Youtube is only one of these, however, I certainly feel it is worthwhile writing about my experiences of this extremely user-friendly website. Only a few years ago, file-sharing websites, such as Youtube were few and far between, indeed, Youtube itself was only a twinkle in its creator's eye. These days, there are numerous file-sharing websites available on the Internet, but by far the most popular is Youtube. Created ..." Read review

MyTube, YourTube, We all Scream for YouTube!

AdvantagesAll Ages Can Navigate, Use, and Love it.

DisadvantagesLayout is still a little ....2005

"Can you believe that YouTube has only been around for just 4 years!? It seems to me that it's been here since the Internet revolution first started. Apparently a few disgruntled ex-employees from Paypal one day in early 2005, decided "Well, we're broke and jobless but we have all this Techie Geek Knowledge, lets create a website that allows people to upload they're own videos on it for everyone else to see them!" If we didn't know already how sucessful ..." Read review

Everybody's Tube

AdvantagesSome quality clips

DisadvantagesSome not so good clips

"If something funny or peculiar happens five will get you ten that someone has it up on You Tube in seconds. For instance Tod's exit from the rink on Dancing on Ice, which apparently has had over a million hits……………extraordinary. Question is, is this testament to You Tube or Tod. Well it's probably a bit of both; it's not going to happen if one participant is missing. Three former Pay Pal employees created You Tube in February of 2005, in November ..." Read review
