Many media platforms have different ways of distributing a media product, one of those is the Internet. In which in the last 10 years the inventions of tablets,smart phone and websites made for media has shaped the way media is seen and heard to many variations of audiences. The push forward in technology has shaped the way how people and audiences see You Tube when, where etc.One of the largest most trending websites for video,music and other media is You Tube, You Tube has caught the attention of many people, as of February 2011, You Tube has 490 million unique users worldwide per month, who rack up an estimated 92 billion page views each month. Who spend around 2.9 billion hours on You Tube in a month — over 325,000 years in total. This results in staggering amounts of people will see and communicate globally about media products on this website. Whether it be advertising or simply "viral" videos.
The reason why You Tube does this is to rack up vast amounts of income. It does this by charging advertisements (at the beginning of videos, and on home pages/thumbnails) which spreads the word of many advertisements globally. You Tube's income reached over $700 million in 2009. This has caught the eye of even the prestige and persnickety companies.
Other companies like Facebook and Twitter. Facebook is one of the largest and most important social networking sites on the Internet today.Facebook has over 350 million active users.

Social networking sites are far better for spreading media platform's in general. All these World Wide Web sites have created a media platform in which Social Networking sites video sites You Tube,Vimeo etc all link together to share and spread awareness to mass audiences around the world resulting the best media distribution is online.
However some websites specify on downloading and 'streaming' of videos, this means that the advance in technology means that smart phones,tablets and new advances in gaming consoles means that media can be distributed by many institutions whether it being viewed on online or downloaded or 'streamed' this means that people can watch anytime videos and music on the go, and also be shared.
