YouFamous; Not Original or Quick Enough

by cory on August 5th, 2007
I just came up with the term YouFamous to describe people that become famous via, and whose fame is primarily limited to, the YouTube viewing audience. Turns out there are already a few matches on Google for the term, although I only count three in their first page of results, and a search on Technorati shows one blogpost that uses the phrase. Urban Dictionary didn't have a definition for it yet, so I added it. Update: The definition was accepted. Here's YouFamous in the Urban Dictionary. Update: The blogpost I link to above is from November of 2006. Not only am I not quick enough, I'm very late to re-coin a term that never caught on the first time. Maybe now, with me as its champion, its time has finally come. Then again, I might not be internet famous enough to effectively spread the word.

  1. actually i wasn't quoting anything, i also just decided to invent the word youfamous and didn't know it was an actual thing? it's a pretty good phrase though, either way.
