It’s difficult to recall a world without YouTube, but the video giant is coming up on just 10 years old this February 14th.

This month’s YouTube anniversary is mostso based on its conception. The domain was created in February 2005, although the first video wasn’t uploaded until April, and the site didn’t officially launch until December.

By the first month, the site had amassed 3 million visitors, followed by 38 million at the end of the first year.

The team at One Productions, a video production company based in Dublin, Ireland, put together this infographic highlighting YouTube’s growth and maturation throughout the years.
