We the Unicorns

When it comes to fan groups, it seems like people from the Philippines may have everyone else beat!

There's something we've noticed here at Unicorns as we continue our quest to write about the awesome online community. You see, when it comes to fandom there are countless incredible fans out there, but one group - or rather one nation seems to be shining even brighter than the others when it comes to expressing their fandoms: Filipinos.

Yes, for whatever reason, it seems that citizens of the Philippines cannot get enough of YouTubers -particularly British ones. Just take a look at this selection of people who follow and tweet at our Twitter account:

As you may have guessed, PH indicates that an account is from the Philippines. The question is: Why are Filipino people quite so passionate about YouTubers? That's what we were hoping you could help us figure out. If you are a Filipino YouTube fan please tell us in the comments below or on our Facebook page why it is you love YouTubers so much. We can't to get a fun discussion going!
