If you haven’t become familiar with Shane Dawson in the past few months, I suggest you take a look.
Shane has been diving deep into the minds and lives of YouTube personalities such as Jeffree Star, Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul in a Netflix-like series.
If you’re not familiar with these YouTube celebrities, that’s ok, tens of millions of others are.
What Shane’s exposé’s signal, to me, is a maturing of YouTube itself as a medium.
YouTuber’s are today’s version of TV and film studios, and with much larger followings.
When grandmas and grandpas are checking YouTube for how-to’s, you know it’s no longer just for the kids.
Speaking of kids, this class of high school aged 13 year olds, have grown up in a world of YouTube. They’ve known nothing else.
Think about that!
