Mainly Youtube is there to let users easily find and watch videos of their choice. Youtube provides search option which in most cases delivers quite relavant videos. In particular, you get only those videos that were tagged (by person who uploaded it) with a similar term(s) as your search term. Presented search results are sorted by ratings, top rated appearing on the top. There is also an option to narrow down results even further by selecting the appropriate category (ex; Art, Entertainment). After watching some video, you can rate it, comment on it, save it to favourites, add it to playlist or recommend it to friends. In addition if user really liked the video s/he can also check whether there are more videos from the person who uploaded it. This way person can monitor favourite broadcasters.
Users can also upload and host their own videos and get feedback on their videos from people. This is a great opportunity to test his/her skills for anyone who is planning to go into broadcasting.
