The World's Highest-Paid YouTuber of 2015
YouTube has been one of the biggest social media platforms to create online celebrities known as 'youtubers'. These youtubers use their creativity to create one-of-a-kind videos that generate millions of dollars. There's a good chance you've seen one of the videos from these YouTube stars. Some make vlogs (video blogs), create their own music, or videotape themselves playing video games. The viewers get to really know these stars through their videos and gain a connection with them. Youtubers get the privilege of working from home and at their own hours. You might now be curious as to how they make a huge profit from uploading videos. Most of their earnings come from advertisements and sponsorships. Once these youtubers have a stable following (Pewdiepie has over 39 million followers) and built their own brand, they create a product line that can consist of hoodies to underwear and even beauty products like eyeliners to their own make-up brushes. YouTube has made a massive impact on the online community.
