YouTube is the second most visited website in the world. The platform, launched by three former employees of PayPal back in 2005, has been a stellar success for Google and their parent company Alphabet Inc. It was recently valued at over $100 billion dollars.
1.First things first:
The first thing you need to do is create your own channel! Or if you’re already using another account like Facebook or Instagram as your primary content-sharing site, just use this same login information when creating a YouTube channel! You’ll want to upload some video clips so people know what they can expect from your videos – maybe show them how to do something, or give them a tour of your home. Once you have some clips to share, go ahead and create an account by clicking on the big orange “Sign Up” button in the top right corner.
This will take you through a series of steps that include selecting your username (make sure it’s not already taken!), entering your email address, reading YouTube’s community guidelines–don’t worry, they’re really short! And then finally filling out all of the pertinent information about yourself before accepting their Terms and Conditions. The next step is uploading videos – click on “Upload” under Inbox where it says “Add video” when logging into YouTube for the first time so we can get started with this process.
