    A lot of people (including me) have been wondering why the youtuber, Markiplier, isn't more recognized. After all he does have over 2 million subscribers. So that's why I'm taking this survey, to find out really how many people have heard of him.

    I may have seen his videos before but don't recognize the name off the top of my head. To be fair though, I'm not big on the YT scene.

    I obviously know of the most popular YT "celebs" but don't really go out of my way to follow anyone in particular.

    How is that not a sign of being recognised?

    I phrased that poorly, what I meant is more recognized by YT. It seems like (at least to me) YT is always praising big name Youtubers like Pewds or ERB, but you really never hear about Markiplier despite his 2 mil subscriptions.

    Yeah but Pewds is big like really big and receives around 4 million per video.
    He is about 20x bigger than than the next biggest youtuber him being at the number one spot. Some people only watch him because not everyone consistently watches Youtube and he is to find since he is promoted by Youtube. So really no one gets recognized.

    However there's a method to PewDiepie's success and coverage, its not that he's #1 on YouTube, its simply because he's moved around and lived in several different areas.

    I just heard of Markiplier from some of Jesse Cox's videos. That's it. Never bothered to watch his stuff, since I prefer to listen.
