Youngest YouTubers

8 of the Youngest Famous YouTubers Currently (2022)

YouTube is a platform founded on February 14, 2005, by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim. In the online video-sharing platform’s infancy, it was a way for people to post random, innocent videos of daily life, tutorials on how to change your car oil, or hilarious cat videos. Like many companies that turned out to become cornerstones in world culture and shaped how to consume content and connect, it wasn’t necessarily in their long-term projections. 

YouTube has achieved things beyond what we thought possible. The notion that YouTube content creation can now be considered a viable career path is no longer a taboo idea that parents could scoff at. The platform has been the catalyst for the rise of a new type of celebrity we refer to as the “YouTube star.” It has allowed us to discover incredible talents in the world of entertainment, gaming, science, academia, and so much more.

Career YouTubers are getting younger and younger as they get savvier and more in touch with the trends of the general public. Today we’re going to be looking at some of the youngest on the platform!

Jojo’s, and YouTube vlogs in general, have much more appeal because of their unlimited runtime and personal approach to entertainment.
