Willenhall, United Kingdom ( March 28, 2013 - In February 2005, YouTube debuted on the Internet as a simple website that aimed to share funny video clips of everyday life. Eight years later, the online media supergiant has finally arrived at the pinnacle of its ongoing success with the recent announcement that the site has received one billion unique visitors every month. The milestone was driven primarily by the new generation of Internet citizens and smartphone users who access the site using their ubiquitous iPhones and Galaxy Notes.

This impressive development has undoubtedly secured YouTube's dominance in the arena of video uploading, sharing, and streaming compared to its many imitators and rival sites. Primarily owned by tech and Internet titan, Google, YouTube's ascension to one billion views comes as to no surprise by many pundits of tech publications, given that Google's strong brand recognition and undefeated omnipresence on the World Wide Web has helped the video sharing website achieve its long-term goal of amassing a large audience comparable to that of its parent website and Facebook.

Indeed, YouTube's path to Internet dominance mirrors that of Facebook. Both sites had humble beginnings back in the early 2000s when they were launched (Facebook went live a year earlier), and achieved similar trajectories in terms of financial success and controversies regarding media content and user privacy. YouTube and Facebook also took eight years to get to that coveted one billion page views, and both websites worked especially hard to constantly update and evolve their site features to cater to the changing tastes of the global online community and the chameleonic trends facing the Internet and technology as a whole. Today, with the site enjoying this remarkable achievement in their storied history, YouTube continues to change the way people enjoy videos in an age where society is largely glued to their computer screens and tiny smartphone displays rather than in front of their television units.

Gunnard Johnson, Google's advertising research director, explains that the new generation of Internet users and media fanatics are preferring devices that offer mobility to access YouTube and other important websites in order to fit in with their more fast-paced lifestyle. Commenting on the issue, he states, "41% tune in to YouTube on their smartphone while waiting for something/someone, 18% while commuting from work or school, and 15% tune in while commercials are running on TV. If YouTube were a country, we'd be the third largest in the world after China and India."
