Logan Paul, the YouTube megastar with around 19.5 million subscribers and estimated earnings of $14.5 million per annum shared his views on the rivalry between YouTube and Facebook in terms of video content.
Speaking at Fox Business Network this Tuesday, Logan Paul pointed towards his inactive Facebook account with 15.6 million followers before speaking in favor of YouTube’s monetization options for content creators.
“YouTube does a better job at monetizing for the creator, that is the home for me as a creator where not only can my content be seen, consumed, digested but also that they pay”, he said.
Logan Paul also acknowledged Instagram and TikTok along with Facebook as content distribution channels but reiterated his loyalty to YouTube because of the platform’s massive reach and visibility.
When addressed as a controversial streamer during the interview, Logan Paul was quick to clarify that he is an ‘ex-controversial YouTuber’ due to an incident in 2017 where he uploaded a video from a Japanese forest which went viral for all the wrong reasons.
The condemnation which followed was a big blow for the YouTube star as his merchandise sales and views were affected, but he has come a long way since then and is bigger than ever today.
Towards the end of the interview, Logan Paul talked about Challenger Games which is a charity event he has planned for July 27, 2019, bringing together the world’s biggest YouTubers in a race to see who takes home the title of fastest YouTuber on the planet.
Finally, he addressed his rematch this year with KSI, which is expected sometime near the end of this year at a venue in the United States. In his classic fashion, Logan Paul threatened to beat KSI badly this time around, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
