It has been about 6 years and 3 months since the first incarnation of the service, then known as Smilevideo, launched in March of 2007. The service's two millionth video was posted in February. The site signed its 1 millionth premium subscriber in October of 2010, and then its 1.5 millionth this past January. It also has 34.15 million registered accounts without a paid subscription.
