Take a look at this interesting story by Jamie Foxx on how he invented YouTube.
YouTube got launched way back in 2005 by founders Jawed Karim, Steve Chen and Chad Hurley. Since then, it has grown into one of the worlds biggest video streaming services and social networks. Today, in 2020, YouTube is currently valued at a mindblowing $40-billion, and is expected to take a dramatic climb after YouTube released its paid membership option recently. This premium service gets rid of ads and offers a music streaming capability to rival Apple Music and Spotify.
A video that was recently uploaded to YouTube by Jamie Foxx went viral, it shows him claiming that he invented YouTube. His reasoning was that, back in the day when the internet was still in its infancy, he approached his manager with an idea; what if they were to launch a talent search feature on BET, where people could submit their acting, singing and dancing talent videos to a service that would filter through them and then put them in touch with potential sponsors. Whether or not this was what sparked the idea of YouTube, we will never know.
