The 5 Most Powerful Influencers on the Internet

Forbes Top Creator #5: Emma Chamberlain, @emmachamberlain

An early adopter of YouTube vlogging, we’ve practically watched Chamberlain grow up.

Known for documenting her caffeinated experiments, travel vlogs, and vintage clothing hauls, the 21-year-old has amassed a dedicated following of over 27M since starting her YouTube channel back in 2016.

To no surprise, the fashionista has since partnered with major fashion brands like Louis Vuitton and Levi’s, and launched her very own venture, Chamberlain Coffee

Pocketing $12M in 2021, Chamberlain has nabbed the fifth spot on Forbes’ list. 

And that’s it!

Between their collective pull, massive communities, and brand partnerships, these five creators are the most influential creators on the internet — according to Forbes. 

And with the creator economy now estimated to be a $100B industry, it’s never been a more exciting time to be in the social media space. We’re curious to see how it evolves.
