Social media has been evolving over the years, but one thing that has been continuing to grow is YouTube. YouTubers have taken over with their video blogs called vlogs, tutorials, and podcasts. They use this platform to inform and influence their millions of subscribers. You might be logging on to watch the latest music videos or celebrity gossip, but if you’re like us, you might just get sucked into these fastest growing YouTubers.
If you’re familiar with YouTube, or mainly video games, you have probably heard of PewDiePie, or his real name Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. With 62 million subscribers, this Swedish YouTuber has gained his viewers through his gaming commentary, meme reviews, vlogs, and plenty of hilarious content. He is also the most subscribed YouTuber, which is a pretty big deal, to say the least. Still gaining followers, this comedic YouTuber is absolutely dominating.
Shane Dawson is a well-known YouTuber, whose popularity never ceases to grow. With 13 million subscribers, this fast growing YouTuber gains more and more followers each month.

Okay, there is something a little different about this channel…they are twins. Two times the fun, as some may say. Niki is commonly referred to as a girly-girl, while Gabi is more of a hipster. Together, they have a booming 6.6 million subscribers, which grows by the thousands every month. They’ve been around for quite some time, but their popularity is still growing. They cover makeup, fashion, school supplies, and all the good stuff in between. Although Niki and Gabi may be twins, you get two separate points of view from this pair, considering they are complete opposites.
