The Top 30 YouTubers on Snapchat

Top YouTubers on Snapchat
Snapchat was initially released in September 2011, and despite its incredible modern popularity, it didn’t really pick up until two years later, in 2013. From this point onward Snapchat started to accelerate growth in a massive way and it grew rapidly, as a favorite among teens and young adults. Today Snapchat has been adopted by the public at large – especially with young people and it’s easy to see why. Snapchat provides a simple way to interact with both friends and a massive audience through video. It’s one-to-many functionality draws a ton of parallels to YouTube today, but is seemingly more personal. As a result, it’s starting to become more common to see YouTubers on Snapchat, too.

Seeing YouTubers on Snapchat makes sense. This is because YouTubers, as leaders of modern entertainment, need to adapt with the changing market. While Snapchat isn’t exactly a media consumption platform, it can be used to foster more direct communication to fans, which is why most YouTubers on Snapchat are there to begin with.
At Grin, we had the team spend a considerable amount of time gathering an exhaustive list of YouTubers on Snapchat.
While it’s not every single YouTuber who is on Snapchat, we’re confident we’ve hit a ton of the major players. This list is outlined here, so you don’t have to do the digging. If you’re not already following these YouTubers snaps – you should probably get on it 🙂
