Leading Youtubers from Belgium based on subscribers 2018
Belgians increasingly watch online video
Between 2017 and 2018, the frequency with which internet users in Belgium watched online videos increased significantly. Roughly 40 percent of respondents watched online videos once per day, regardless of device. YouTube was the most-used platform for this in Flanders (the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium), whereas Twitch (which focuses exclusively on online gaming and e-Sports) reached a penetration rate of four percent in this region. Online news video penetration in Belgium was around 55 percent in 2018, which was higher than in the Netherlands but lower than the European average.
Influencers are also popular on Instagram
Vlogger Jimmy Labeeu can be found in third place in this ranking, with around 1.5 million subscribers. The French-speaking Belgian actor had a relationship with fellow YouTuber Gaëlle Garcia Diaz (who is not mentioned in this ranking). She topped the ranking for most-followed Instagram influencers coming from Belgium though.
