YouTube is a video sharing website, hosting everything from exclusive television shows to professional music videos to home recordings. In August of 2006 the site was reported having 45 terabytes of video footage. There are web domain names for 19 different countries, including England, France, Germany, and others. All videos are embeddable on other websites, making YouTube popular not only via home website, but on other social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook as well. A popular spin-off effect of the YouTube culture is GodTube, which offers Christian video sharing plus blogging, live event feeds, and a prayer wall.
