YouTube is very popular, and people are glued to it because it is entertaining, and interesting you can find all sorts of information on youtube about pretty much anything.
Personally I don't have a Youtube account, But I don't really watch it! I can see what's new, funnysmile and things that happend in the media. And it's somewhat educational to people that use it. People that have video's on youtube get recognized! nerdy

As far as I understand, Youtube is the first web site on the Internet which provides video based reply messages when a specific search is made.

Not only for fun and entertainment but Youtube can be used for educational purposes as well.

I use Youtube most of the time when I need to learn something. It gives proper explanation with video description.

I feel that's the secret of Youtube.

You tube is such a good service but most people uses it in a bad way instead of posting good and useful videos they post the bad one , but we have a great chance to choose whatever we want it's not about just watching , but i guess social network such as face-book or youtube they had a large amount of users so that they became widely famous , i prefer watching videos on youtube when i miss something on t.v or when i am busy it help me to just pick the video i want to watch smile)

I think the best thing about youtube is that when you search for one thing, it gives you other suggestions so you end up watching things that you would never have even thought of searching for.

Also, I think it is popular because most of the videos are pretty short, so it means you can be entertained without having to be at home watching the TV.

I know some people spend hours every day looking at it, but what I find most helpful is all the demonstration videos and tutorials.

I think that they give us the chance to let people share their laugh, emotions, experiences with the others, mostly strangers. And because sight - video - is our most developed sense, it's powerful. I think people don't want to feel alone in the hypermodernized world but they feel. Youtube is "live" and gives them the feeling "someone likes the same like you.." ...

and also people want to hear music, watch movies

There aren't really any good alternatives for the service it provides, are there? I know there's Dailymotion and Veoh but they simply aren't on the same scale

YouTube has everything that you would like to look up and it's easy for people to get into because they don't have to read anything. Youtube also is a great way to make money, and start a business, meet new people and is a popular social media site that has helped so many people.
