So why would someone have a YouTube Channel?

In 2014 YouTube became known as the second largest search engine on the planet. With 6 billion hours of video viewed every month and 100 hours of video uploaded every minute, it’s certainly a force to be reckoned with.

YouTube reaches more U.S. adults aged 18–34 than any cable network.(Cooper) Plus have you looked at your cable bill lately? TV is no longer the best way to reach the masses.  In fact, according to Nielsen as reported by AdAge, viewership of broadcast TV shows on the big four networks (ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC) among 18-to-49-year-olds is down 25 percent from last year.

 Teens and millennials (12 to 17-year-olds) are spending a lot fewer hours watching "traditional" (non-time-shifted) TV every week than they were just four years ago.  Instead, Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV,  orapps like YouTube, Facebook, or Snapchat are much more useful.(Rosoff) and on their schedule. Not TV's schedule. 12-17 years old have homework, sports games,  relationships... basically they have a life.  Why not schedule show watching to them, rather life to TV watching.

It also offers them form of self-expression for a person or a company.
