Bieber celebrated his fifth YouTube anniversary last month. His mom created his original account in January 2007 before rap star Usher signed him to a record label the following year. Since then, Bieber has taken the social media world by storm, attracting millions of followers across many networks. Bieber has 17.8 million Twitter followers and 40.8 million Facebook "Likes."
Google Chrome recently chronicled Bieber's impressive reach and presence on Google and YouTube in an ad below. The YouTube-star-turned-mega-celebrity most recently made a splash at the Consumer Electronics Show where he endorsed a gadget for robotic toys company TOSY.
Bieber is no stranger to making things go viral online. His official YouTube channel has 2.3 billion views. Previously, his bedtime tweets have attracted thousands upon thousands of replies and retweets.
But can the whizzes at AgencyNet and Bieber's fans demonstrate the magic viral touch, too, and give Bieber a world record on his big 1-8? We'll have to wait and see.
