The A-Z of YouTube: Celebrating 10 Years | #HappyBirthdayYouTube

#HappyBirthdayYouTube
Ten years ago in May, YouTube launched in beta.

From the silly to the profound, from the personal to the political, we’re celebrating a decade of your creativity and self-expression. And, we’re doing it from A to Z.
