Each time you search on Google for videos you will probably end up with a long list of results from one place: YouTube!
The first appearance of YouTube was in 2005, and in 2006 it was bought by Google (for $1.65 billion in stock, if you can imagine). Since then, people have used YouTube to find their favorite videos, movies, songs and music videos, TV shows, etc. In this fantastic website there is always something for everybody, plus you can upload whatever you want, whenever you want and share it with the entire world.
In this easy tutorial you will learn how create your own YouTube account step by step so you can enjoy its amazing services, like uploading your own videos, creating a channel, saving your favorites, and following your favorite channels.
Create a YouTube Account
Let’s start with typing the YouTube URL on our browser:
From the home page, click the “Sign in” button in the upper right-hand corner. You can use any Google account to log in to YouTube like, Gmail, Google +, etc. If you don’t have any Google accounts, you will need to create a new one.
After pressing “Sign in”, you will be redirected to Google, where you can choose an existing account or add a new one.
If you choose to sign in with an existing account, simply enter your Google email and password.
If you choose to create a new Google account, click on “Create an account” and fill in the form that appears by entering your first name, last name, and current email address. Create a new password (make it a good one!), confirm the password by retyping it, enter your birth date, and choose your gender.
Now, in order to continue you will need to verify your account. Just enter your phone number and the way you want to receive your verification code – either by text message or by a voice call.
As a YouTube user, you can create your playlist; everyone loves to save their favorite videos so they can find them later, and on YouTube you can make your own playlist in order to save things that you enjoy the most. You can also interact with other people’s videos by sharing or commenting on them, and you can even share your own videos. If you subscribe to channels, you will be notified every time they upload something. Sharing your video content can’t be any easier as long as you are using YouTube.
