To salute April Fool's day like anything Google has managed to surprise viewers by closing down YouTube service after eight long years. The video sharing site will be closed down from April 2, 2013. After that all current uploaded videos will get deleted as well. The site is estimated to be live in 2023. What a well framed prank ...Google.
According to YouTube Blog, after eight long years, and seventy two videos uploaded every minute, the most loved service is finally ready to be buried under deep sea. Google played a prank to make all of us Honey Bunny on the occasion of April fool's day. The highly praised video service will come to an end midnight, April 1. As per video shown to viewers, more than 30,000 staff members were busy in reviewing all videos uploaded so far.
