One of my favorite places to visit on the Internet is YouTube. From my point of view, the Google owned YouTube service has changed the way people view entertainment programming and the news of the day.
While millions of people all over the world turn to YouTube each day for the latest videos, the little dirty secret about YouTube is that the service itself has always been a money loser. Even when Google bought YouTube years ago, the previous owner could not make a profit running it either.
During good times, it is easy for a highly profitable company like Google to just soak up the good will of millions of people that just love YouTube. However, the world and big businesses like Google are suffering through more lean times right now - so my question is, how long will Google continue to operate the money losing service called YouTube?
