The announcement from the Google-owned video website comes as part of a larger initiative that the company is launching today to retell the history behind YouTube and its growth. Part of that campaign is the launch of “My YouTube Story” and the related YouTube 5 Year Channel.
The new YouTube 5 Year Channel is the landing page for the campaign. With it, YouTube intends to get users to submit videos about the impact YouTube has had on their lives. It will eventually be curated by Stephen Higgins, a documentary filmmaker. There is also an interactive timeline depicting the social media’s history and a collection of videos from celebrities discussing the five year achievement.
