In YouTubeLess, the 2004 Janet Jackson incident never happens, and the tsunami never happens, so what will be of YouTube?

Plot

In November 2004, Vimeo was founded (duh). A year later, in 2006, Yahoo became more popular than Google. In 2008, Google acquired Vimeo. By 2011, Vimeo was the second most visited website in the world. In 2018, Google took away some of its minor brands, like Vimeo. Vimeo gets less successful at this time.
