YouTube started as a simple idea between three PayPal co-workers in late 2004. A year-and-a-half later, their idea morphed into a $1.65 billion payday and millions of videos being available to the public. The YouTube website was first registered as a domain name on February 14, 2005. After three months of development, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim, who owned the site, uploaded their first video.

Even if it's just an overnight stay at a friend's house. In the cyber world, parents have viable concerns about bullying, predators, and the unknown. The good news is no matter what your parenting style, there's an app that suits your comfort level.
