Know Your Internet Star: The Most Popular YouTubers and Viners (Gallery)

Let’s face it: This whole Internet thing isn’t just a fad. And YouTube and Vine? They’re now responsible for creating bonafide stars on screen and stage. (After all, Justin Bieber was just another YouTube cover artist before being discovered by Scooter Braun in 2007.)

In fact, there’s even a whole award show (the Streamy Awards!) now dedicated to the stars of social media.

And so, rather than just responding with a sarcastic “WHO?” every time one of these super-popular Viners and YouTubers comes up in conversation or your newsfeed — like, say, Tyler Oakley, King Bach, Grace Helbig, Gigi GOrgeous, Troye Sivan, Shawn Mendes or Mahogany Lox — get to know the cast of characters on your timelines raking in the likes, favs and retweets (and a bunch of cash through endorsements, hosting and TV show deals!)

Their talents range from comedy, to make-up and beauty tutorials to simply being #relatable teens — but all of them rose to fame because of the same thing: The Internet.

In the future, everybody will be famous for six seconds. That’s how the saying goes, right? Yeah, something like that…
