Over the years, YouTube has been the top streaming video platform that allows users to watch and publish videos.

“I subscribe to channels that are fun to watch and constantly upload,” said Cheyenne McDonald, 7. 

 On YouTube, more than 300 hours of video are uploaded every day, and about 5 billion total videos are watched on the platform. YouTube pays creators from views and subscribers. With 6.6 billion views, the most viewed video on YouTube is the music video, Despacito, by Luis Fonsi. The video reached a net worth of 10 million dollars. PewDiePie, the creator of the most popular channel, made an earning of 6 million dollars last year. 

 “I like to watch baking videos because I like to learn how to bake sweets,” said Ellorah Snowden, 7.  

From family channels and vlogs to  tutorials and gaming videos, YouTube has it all. The popular family channel, “The ACE Family,”  has over 18 million subscribers. The family posts vlogs, short videos, of their everyday life, twice a week. Another popular YouTube star is PewDiePie, a gamer. He has over 100 million subscribers and over 24 billion views. 

“My favorite YouTubers to watch are David Dobrik and the Dolan Twins because they make it fun and entertaining,” said Soniya Jacobs, 8. 

Overall, YouTube’s library of content is unique and has something for everyone.
