YouTube is a video-sharing website, created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005 and owned by Google since late 2006, on which users can upload, view and share videos.[4] The company is based in San Bruno, California, and uses Adobe Flash Video and HTML5 technology to display a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media video content, including video clips, TV clips, and music videos, and amateur content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most of the content on YouTube has been uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, Hulu, and other organizations offer some of their material via YouTube, as part of the YouTube partnership program.[5] Unregistered users can watch videos, and registered users can upload an unlimited number of videos. Videos considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old. Company history Related:  LEC Recommended TOOLS

Twitter History Creation and initial reaction Twitter's origins lie in a "daylong brainstorming session" held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo. Dorsey, then an undergraduate student at New York University, introduced the idea of an individual using an SMS service to communicate with a small group.[15][16] The original project code name for the service was twttr, an idea that Williams later ascribed to Noah Glass,[17] inspired by Flickr and the five-character length of American SMS short codes. ...we came across the word 'twitter', and it was just perfect. The first Twitter prototype, developed by Dorsey and contractor Florian Weber, was used as an internal service for Odeo employees[20] and the full version was introduced publicly on July 15, 2006.[8] With Twitter, it wasn't clear what it was. Reaction at the conference was highly positive. The first unassisted off-Earth Twitter message was posted from the International Space Station by NASA astronaut T. Growth Leadership Logo Tweets

Google Makes New YouTube Channel Creation Easier For Those With Multiple Channels Google announced a new small but helpful feature for YouTube today. Now when you go to create a new channel, you’ll have the option to have it connected with a Google+ Page. This makes it easier for channel creators that already have other channels. As YouTube software engineer Brett Hobbs explains, “Previously, every channel you created needed to have its own Google account login. If you’re a creator that manages many channels, you might even have a spreadsheet to organize the various email addresses and passwords you use to log in to your channels.” “We made a significant improvement to the multiple channel management experience recently when we launched the option to connect your existing channels with a Google+ page,” he notes. Now with the new feature, things are just easier right from the start. Of course this also means that those who go to create YouTube channels for the first time will be encouraged to use a Google+ page, and that can’t hurt for Google+ usage.

Newgrounds Newgrounds is an American entertainment and social media website and company. Founded on July 6, 1995 by Tom Fulp, the site primarily hosts Adobe Flash animations and games, but also features a music-oriented page, along with an art portal. Tom Fulp remains the site's owner and still regularly produces in-house content. Its offices are headquartered in Glenside, Pennsylvania.[3] Front page[edit] The home page of Newgrounds displays recent submissions chosen by administrators as a special showcase of their favorites. As Newgrounds received more quality submissions the "Tom and Wade Recommend" section grew from 1 to 2, 2 to 4, and 4 to 6 icons. Originally the icons were created by moderators, as were the long Flash descriptions (the same process used for the collections pages), but this proved to be an extremely time-consuming, tedious task. On February 6, 2012 Newgrounds was shut down while the long-awaited redesign was being implemented. Flash Portal[edit] Rating systems[edit] Awards[edit]
