Since it was first founded in 2005, YouTube has become one of the largest sites on the web and THE way to share video content with a mass audience. With so much content and so many different people uploading music and videos – among other things – it has never been easier to share such media on a global scale.
Those who’ve been able to capitalize on this have become pseudo-celebrities of sorts. With all the waves of content out there, there are some on YouTube who’ve been able to gain a following of their own and really stick out from other “YouTubers” with their channels. Although there are a ton of people doing much of the same thing, the ones who succeed online are the ones that can entertain us with what’s familiar while bringing on their own twist.
This list focuses solely on these “YouTubers”. That means no celebrity VEVOs, or multi-channel networks like Machinima. This list focuses on the individuals who’ve separated themselves from the pack and left their own mark on the YouTube community.
Theses are the top 10 most subscribed YouTubers online.
