Do you watch YouTubers?

  1. Does anybody here watch YouTubers? If so then who do you like to watch? I like to watch Zoe Sugg, Joe Sugg, Alfie Deyes and Sean OConnor. I mostly watch the daily vlogs that they upload. I also like watching other YouTubers based on tech.

  2. I mean...kinda. Accidentally. They're all kinda awful but sometimes it's an amusing way to pass the time.
     
  3. I kind of get what you mean haha! It's sad but secretly really fun and interesting to watch people's vlogs.

  4. I casually follow Call of Duty e-sports so I got into watching YouTubers through that. I only really watch some of the gameplay videos that some of the pro players upload but lately I've been watching H1Z1 Battle Royale videos.

    I also watch some of the vlogs that the CEO of one of the e-sports organisations uploads. He's 36 so he's more relatable to me than these YouTubers in their early 20s.

  5. No, because they're universally terrible.

  6. It's sort of scary how many turn out to be rapists and molesters.
     
  7. Miles Jai is the only Youtuber I watch. His weave weaviews are perfect hangover viewing.

  8. I've fallen into a bit of a hole, after years of not really getting it. I think the whole 'YouTube" star thing missed me by a few years. I started watching bits of Jeffree Star's channel for...whatever reason... then accidentally found myself watching loads of other shit, almost out of morbid curiosity. Watched some atrocious young man with too much money waffle on about his grindr dates and how essential his 1k lip fillers are for 20 minutes the other night before reassessing my choices.

  11. Slightly relieved I am not the only one… Ended up binge-watching his videos.
     
  12. No, I used to love YouTubers back in the day when it was all new and they weren't getting paid for views. Now it's all extremely samey, boring and a waste of time.

  13. There are plenty of good youtubers and youtube content creators. However, there is PLENTY of car crash youtube.

    I know someone who became a Youtuber. They live off Youtube now. What I have heard through the grapevine is that they have made their life very difficult. They may have properly ruined it. They are still generating income and have their loyal (psycho) fans but... they have ruined their life. They have haters who are digging up their murky online past. They have overspent their fortunes instead of saving it. They have stalkers. They have ruined friendships and family life. They have made themselves into anxious mess.

    They are heading for disaster. Its really sad.
     
  14. Charles Gross says "literally" a lot. He "literally" has nothing to say though.

  15. Top5's channel and that's it. Seriously well researched and thought provoking videos, I love it.

  17. Charles is such a guilty pleasure of mine. His videos are like a much sadder, much gayer Gossip Girl.

  19. No.

    Well, not unless I'm stuck on a video game* and I can't find a text walkthrough / it doesn't help, and I have to watch a Let's Play.

  20. I'm about to get my drag on for Friday so need to watch a tutorial I like the look of. I actually watch a lot of drag tutorials. They're so interesting.
