It goes without saying that a lot of showbiz personalities would maintain online presence, as in having social media accounts. Some go further and produce media for public consumption, from podcasts to videos. The latter would lead to some celebrities opening their own YouTube channels. One such YouTuber personality is actress Julia Barretto, who started her channel in 2019. Her subscriber count grew gradually until in mid-2020 she was presented a Silver Play Button for surpassing 100,000 subs. By the time she revealed that, her subscribers numbered over 300,000. This week, Julia hit another YouTube milestone, which she shared with her followers: 1 million plus.
The Manila Bulletin has it that the official Julia Barretto YouTube channel has amassed more than 1 million subscribers, a sure sign that her uploaded videos have a strong and regular following. The Kapamilya star announced her record sub count on Instagram this past Wednesday, April 28. That is certainly not bad for a self-confessed YouTube rookie whose channel is under two years old. Her first video was that of her personal preparations for the 2019 ABS-CBN ball, and her content followed that theme, showing peeks at her home life and time spent with family.
“We hit a milestone reaching 1 million subscribers on YouTube!” Barretto writes on her IG post, which depicted her first YT vid again, where she introduced herself as “#JustJulia.” The ABS-CBN stalwart remarked on how it has been a journey for her channel, and somewhat implied, her life, and that that she has a lot of reasons to feel gratitude for the moment. “And one of them is being given the chance to let you get to know me better,” she continues. “From the bottom of my heart, thank you!”
