    Subscriber on youtube

    I have been logging into youtube within the last two weeks to watch videos with my gmail account. I have not posted any videos but I note a little icon under my account which states 1 subscriber.

    What is this, anyone know?

    Why would someone subscribe to me if I haven't posted anything? How are they able to subscribe to me when I haven't posted anything?

    Also, if they subscribe to me, what does that mean exactly? What will they get by subscribing to me on youtube?

    I have read that already but that describes subscribers who subscribe to video postings, whereas I have not posted any videos for anyone to subscribe to, so how can anyone even subscribe? how do you subscribe to someone if they haven't posted anything?

    Hello There,

    You can subscribe to anyone with a YouTube account regardless if they have video post etc... Also subscribing just a means any videos you post etc will notify them in there subscription folder/notification to let them know you have posted. Hope this helps

    Kind Regards

    I am concerned that someone has subscribed to my account when I have not posted anything to subscribe to. The only thing I have ever posted on youtube are two comments, one each to music video, which I thought was very good.

    Could it have been that is where they have found the subscribe button from? Or can you actually search for someone on youtube then subscribe to their account?

    ​What are you concerned about?

    Better get your firewall ready, YouTube subscribers are massing...

    big brothers watching you,
    or it could be just a deranged stalker.

    That they have subscribed for a purpose as it is not normal. What exactly can they see? Just anything I post or anything I have visited?

    I tend to attract odd people. I am used to get strangers asking to be my friend on Facebook and twitter and pretty much anywhere. Doesn't bother me so much as I just ignore them. However this is the first time that I have started to use my YouTube account and I don't know what a subscriber sees. I guess they will see any comments I make our any videos I post.

    They're only after your money Lord Mutley ;).

    In all seriousness though you're fine. They can't view anything more about you than a normal user.
