YouTube chart ranks 25 or 40 most viewed videos of all time on the site. Videos uploaded on YouTube that are suspicious and contain violence, sexual disturbance, and any other factors that are unfriendly are not incorporated in the chart. A lot of the videos uploaded on YouTube are played through a partner website called Vevo, and the counts of views for these videos will be updated by YouTube in 3-4 days after the upload. Two of the included video tracks in the chart are music videos.
The videos included in the chart also include those from the “Billion View Club”, and these are videos that exceeded one billion views on the website. Before June 26, 2015, Gangnam Style and Baby were the only videos whose views reached over one billion, but in October 2015, there were already ten videos that reached the desired views. And in June 2016, there were 25 videos that exceeded one billion views that include two non-music videos. Only Gangnam Style of Psy exceeded two billion views. There were five videos that reached one billion views the fastest, and these videos were Blank Space for 240 days, See You Again for 184 days, Gangnam Style for 159 days, Sorry for 137 days, and Hello for 88 days, that is, as of June 2016.
Where It All Began
The famous YouTube started when some PayPal workers created a website that shares video in which its users can upload, view comment, and share. Its Internet domain name was established on February 14, 2005.
Steve Chen, Jawed Karim, and Chad Hurley founded YouTube. Before joining PayPal, Hurley was taking design at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, while Chen and Karim were taking computer science together at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The website’s office/headquarters previously was located above a pizzeria and a Japanese restaurant in San Mateo that is in California.
The website allowed uploads starting on April 23, 2005, and the first video that was uploaded was Me at the Zoo that showed Karim on the video at the zoo in San Diego. The video is still available as of today.
In the summer of 2006, the website became the fastest growing and the most viewed video website in the Internet. It was ranked on Alexa as the fifth most popular website on the Internet. Based on Nielsen/NetRatings, YouTube had almost 20 million visitors every month.
