YouTube is a modern day phenomenon – a video sharing service owned by Google and enjoyed by millions throughout the world every day.

In a recent survey (link is external) by Parent Zone, 52% of young people questioned said they would recommend a friend watch YouTube to cheer themselves up if they were feeling down.
