Who’s really breaking the internet? Kim Kardashian? She made headlines when she bared her butt on the cover of Paper magazine, but compared to an average YouTube star the amount of conversation she sparked was insignificant.
The media is pushing this idea down our throats that the future is with digital stars, but the reality is it’s been this way for nearly a decade, since YouTube’s inception. The most engaged conversations are stemming from YouTube creators, who are more famous to teens than Film and TV stars. They are the best option for any brand to make it big on Youtube. Yet, in all these years, most brands have failed to truly capitalize on the opportunities this ecosystem provides.
