If there is one channel that practically everybody on this planet is familiar with, it is the channel that was founded by three enterprising people in the year 2005. Hurley, Chen, and Karim have been credited as the founders of this popular platform that has given millions of people a voice and taken information from one end of the globe to the other. YouTube was birthed in America and became the most popular online video sharing and social media platform. This ubiquitous channel is owned by Google and hence has the same levels of professional management as the search engine giant.
It is interesting to know that when Google purchased this platform in the year 2006, it probably did not think that it would become so popular and evolve into an entity of its own. Now, there are extensions to this channel with apps, short films, documentaries, trailers, live presentations, vlogs, and a lot more. If you are a person who has a google account, it becomes quite easy for you to make sure that your own videos are uploaded on the channel, to be viewed. Also, if you are keen on maintaining a closed group, this is possible too. This is specifically used by those who need to send in videos to a group or team. With today’s pandemic, teachers have started using this to service their wards who are at home. This way, the videos that they send are not treated as public property; instead, they can be viewed only by those who have a username and password that is shared privately.
Rules & Regulations
As is the case with all other platforms, this is also one that tries to be as stringent as possible with its users. Though there are quite a few people who keep breaking the rules, the watchdog department of the channel is quick to pounce on them and either cautions them about what they might be doing or in some extreme cases, stop them altogether. Rules, protocols and regulations are always displayed with the fervent hope that there will be some discretion on the part of users to maintain levels of safety, decency, and moral conduct. Every now and again there are some trip-ups that force the management to come down heavily on wrongdoers.
As is the case with any kind of technological facility, this is a channel that can be used for the betterment of multitudes. If this is not done, and there are some misuses, corrective actions are initiated.
