If you still think YouTube is just about dogs on skateboards, you haven’t been keeping up (Oh, and Twitter really isn’t about what someone had for lunch. Okay? You got that?). Some very funny and talented people are attracting big audiences. Like Shane Dawson, who has a very popular YouTube channel:
Shane Dawson is a YouTube comedian and actor. Dawson is known for making comedy videos featuring recurring characters, impersonations and spoofs of popular music videos. His YouTube channel is the third most subscribed channel of all time, with over 1.5 million subscribers.[Wikipedia]
For insight on why people like young Mr. Dawson are important, I encourage you to let Terry Heaton explain what he calls “The Evolving User Paradigm”
PS: I am one of the 1,621,354 subscribers to the YouTube channel. Perhaps the oldest.
