It's pretty tough to argue against the idea that YouTube has changed the way the world uses the internet.  In fact, it was only five years ago today that YouTube was launched with a goal to give anyone a place to upload and share their videos.  What started as an unknown project has since developed into a platform that serves billions of videos each day.

To help celebrate, YouTube has put together a channel that features the stories of some of the most popular YouTubers and how it's changed their lives.  Check out the Five Year channel for a list of all participants.
