PewDiePie has given an insight to the ages of people watching the world’s largest YouTube channel.
While showing memes from the PewDiePie subreddit, he came across a user asking to reveal the analytics of his channel to show how many 9 year olds are actually in the PewDiePie Army.
The idea of PewDiePie's fan base being made up of 9 year olds was suggested by Alinity, as part of a dispute that originated with Alinty copystriking a video of PewDiePie calling her a "Thot."
PewDiePie complied with the request and brought up the age analytics of his channel. Surprisingly, the 25-34 demographic has a higher percentage of views than the 13-17 age group at 28% and 11%, respectively.
18-24 is the most popular group on PewDiePie’s channel, making up 44% of the views.
There is a huge fall off in viewership after turning 35, as 35 to 65+ makes up just 17% of his channel combined. The lowest age group is 55 to 64, checking in at 1%.
The numbers also showed the average view duration for each age group, with 25-34 leading the way at 6:18. The 55-64 grandparents who forgot to log out of their grandchildren’s YouTube account once again bring up the rear, watching only for 5:17 on average.
Of course, PewDiePie’s analytics are only accurate if the people creating YouTube accounts are being truthful.
Google does not allow anyone under the age of 13 to create a Google account, and the minimum age is as high as 16 in some EU countries. It is possible that any age group listed is actually a 9 year old on someone else's account.
Officially, 9 year olds do not watch PewDiePie and he is the most popular with people aged between 18 and 24. Unofficially, the amount of 9 year olds watching PewDiePie is anywhere between 0 and 65 million. Check out the video below to decide for yourself.
