Since its launch in 2005, YouTube has focused on providing a hub for users to upload and share their most interesting, intimate, exciting, or embarrassing moments with viewers all over the world. In fact, until YouTube came along, there were few easy ways for the average user to share video on the Web. With a huge audience that grows exponentially each year, YouTube is perhaps the most stimulating and important outlet for popular culture at this moment in time.
