Vlog, or video blog, is the chicest form of personal production on YouTube First appearing at the beginning of the 21 st century, vlogs saw an enormous rise in popularity around 2005 Differing from other forms of production, vlogs allow their producers more freedom in expressing themselves without the limitation of content, word count, and forms of expression The absence of censorship and early stage marketing allows an almost free market effect in the sense that the most popular vloggers and videos are purely the choice of people Therefore, analyzing viral vlogs and vloggers can offer a more accurate representation of where the general population’s interests lie. In the project, I focused on 4 vloggers of different genres to analyze the reasons behind their successes using NLP techniques.
