The YouTube Phenomenon

Yes, it's true, I have chosen to do my New Media Presentation on YouTube.

The most successful of its kind, YouTube is a website geared toward the sharing, watching and uploading of videos.

With a multitude of functions, the open ability to upload anything at all has truly influenced our current society.

A prominent example are those individuals who have being "YouTube celebrities" almost overnight.

Here is an example of someone who catapulted their career through the usage of YouTube:

Esmee Denters is a 21 year old girl from the Netherlands. Discovered in 2008 by Justin Timberlake himself, she was the first signed to his new record label "Tennman" in association with Interscope. This video was posted on YouTube on November 9th, 2006.
