Mark Edward Fischbach aka Markiplier was born June 28, 1989, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Mark made his first YouTube account on March 6, 2012, and posted his first video on April 4, 2012. Mark made his first ever “Let’s Play” series for the horror game Amnesia. After Mark had played multiple game series such as Penumbra and Dead Space YouTube decided to take Marks ad revenue (earnings from sponsorship advertisements). After that Mark lost sponsorship companies interest and people stopped wanting to sponsor him.
After losing all ad revenue Mark decided to create a new account called MarkiplierGAME, which was created on May 26, 2012. In 2014 Mark’s channel was listed on a site called New Media Rockstars in the top 100 list as number 61. The same year Mark announced that he was moving to Los Angeles California. In 2014 Mark and fellow YouTuber Jenna Mae both were guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In 2015, Mark’s channel was number six on a list of 20 celebrities that were the most influential to teenagers.
In late 2015 mark had reached 10 million subscribers on YouTube. As of now, Mark has 21+ million subscribers and we all hope that Marks channel will keep on growing.
