Youtube seems to be taking over these days. If you’re in your 20’s or younger you probably don’t even watch TV that much. It’s all about Youtube these days. We hear about Youtube celebs even more than we do about TV or movie celebs. And with Youtube personalities it’s so much easier to keep in touch and see what they’re up to. Plus, there’s a much bigger variety of personalities and kinds of content on Youtube than there is on TV. So today, let’s talk about the top 6 Indonesian Youtubers.
1. Raditya Dika
