The roles of famous individuals have been played by actors, TV stars or athletes as well as rock stars. The popularity of celebrities is changing to include a brand new, technology-oriented kind of superstar: The Vlogger. A vlog, if you’ve been living under the rock, is an online blog (self-published online diary) with video. In terms of fame the vlog has surpassed blogs. The popularity of the video hasn’t reached the same amount of attention since the year 1895 when it was invented. It is easier to learn the technology required to be a vlogger or take control of media through citizen journalism as the kind of media is known.

We are left with a vast pool of people who’s fame is based on the Internet.”
