A couple of days ago,YouTube delivered its prizes to the creators of YouTube content in Spain in Spain with more followers on its platform. The Atresmedia group (A3TV and La Sexta), was done with the Golden Button , surpassing one million subscribers, a feat that places it as a means of communication with more followers in Spain.
YouTube delivered its prizes
But if you still do not know what youtubers are , and it is probably something that you do not know if you have a certain age like me and do not have small children, it is that YouTube delivered the “Diamond Button” to ElRubiusOMG and Veget ta777, an award that you only get when you have more than 10 million subscribers on YouTube and that these two Spanish Youtubers already have in their hands.
I think that with this data, you can begin to be aware of the impact that the Youtubers are having, all truly beloved ones, in the world of visual entertainment. Not a whole Media group, with the production capacity it has, manages to reach one tenth of the followers who have two simple Youtubers.
If you have children who are over 5 years of age and under 20, surely you will have begun to realize the existence of this phenomenon of the Youtubers, all self-made media stars that have fully captive the youth audience. That no television has signed them yet is something that simply surprises me and does not stop showing us a certain myopia. Something that is starting to happen in the US.
We do not know that they will win the RubiusOMG or Vegetta777, but as for followers they are not far from the mega stars of YouTube, self-made leading the rankings for earnings:

The video they recorded, where an entry was raffled to go see the movie with them, was seen more than 4 million times and had more than 70 thousand comments.
