Detailed Description

Update

Tudou is a Chinese video sharing website that enables young users to get their voices heard on mainstream network media platforms.

Launched on April 15, 2005, by its founder Wang Tei, Tudou was listed on NASDAQ on August 17 that same year. Tudou.com completed its fifth round of financing for $40 million dollars in 2010.

In 2012, Tudou was acquired by Youku in a stock-for-stock transaction, and the merger of China's two biggest online video companies was finalized after shareholders approved the deal on August 20, 2012. The new entity was named Youku Tudou, Inc.

According to iResearch, the number of monthly unique visitors to the site increased from approximately 182 million in December 2010 to about 227 million in May 2013, giving Youku Tudou, Inc. the advantage in terms of user base over its major rivals, Sohu, PPTV and iQiyi.
