What the Tech: Youtube Stars

For some people, Youtube is not just a site for entertainment.

Some "you-tubers" are actually earning a living making Youtube videos. 

Jamey Tucker caught up with one of those Youtube celebrities to find out what it's all about.

Hannah Hoffman has never had a tv show, never had a hit record or been in a movie.

Yet, she's famous for making YouTube videos.

Her twice weekly YouTube show "Hannah Hoffman" is a hit with teenage girls. 

She laughs, makes jokes and draws.

"YouTube is the best place to do just whatever you want." 

When you google her name, Hannah Hoffman showed up before Hannah Montana.

208,000 thousand people subscribe to her videos and some are getting over a half-million views.

"For every thousand views you get about $1 in ad revenue. If I get a million views a month that's about $1,000. That's not enough to pay the rent really," said Hoffman.

Still, this computer science major plans to do YouTube videos full-time rather than getting a real job when she gets her degree.
