According to multiple studies, YouTubers have become an important source of information and entertainment for the millennial and Generation Z-generations.[citation needed] Influential YouTubers are frequently described as microcelebrities. Since YouTube is widely conceived as a bottom-up social media video platform microcelebrities do not appear to be involved with the established and commercial system of celebrity culture but rather appear self-governed and independent. This appearance, in turn, leads to YouTubers being seen as more relatable and authentic, also fostered by the direct connection between artist and viewer using the medium of YouTube.

These microcelebrities often communicate with their viewers which gives a more friendly outlook. YouTubers create content on a wide range of variety including vlogs, instructive, how to, informative videos, and more.

Several prominent YouTubers and their influence were subjects for scientific studies, such as Zoella and PewDiePie. Because of this level of influence, Robert Hovden argued for the creation of a new index similar to the g-index and h-index to evaluate a person’s output and impact on YouTube.
