I learned a lot from watching the Michael Welch video in class. I was never aware of the background of YouTube or how much it has grown. I remember the early days of the site and how cool I thought it was to be able to search practically any music video or any professional athlete's highlight reel. One point that I found interesting was the statement, "YouTube has grown to be more of a mass media than a social media". I completely agree with that quote because it really evolved to the level of Facebook and twitter.
