The second series of ‘How To Be Internet Famous’ goes live today on All 4. The series examines how vlogging on Youtube and other platforms has become a billion dollar industry, turning normal people into millionaires and celebrities in their own right.
Vloggers are fast becoming the 21st century new breed of celebrity. A survey1 of 13 – 17 years olds claimed that Vloggers are more influential for this age group than traditional film, music or TV stars. Vloggers now dominate Most Influential lists across the world. Stylehaul’s vlogger Fleur de Force currently has over 1.1 million You Tube channel subscribers and 4 million views per month. Last year, Vlogger Zoella outsold J K Rowling with her debut novel Girl Online and last year alone Swedish Pew DiePie reportedly made over £4.5 million in 2014.
