YouTube, Instagram, SoundCloud, and other online platforms are changing the way people create and consume media. The Verge's Creators section covers the people using these platforms, what they're making, and how those platforms are changing (for better and worse) in response to the vloggers, influencers, podcasters, photographers, musicians, educators, designers, and more who are using them. The Verge¡¯s Creators section also looks at the way creators are able to turn their projects into careers ¡ª from Patreons and merch sales, to ads and Kickstarters ¡ª and the ways they¡¯re forced to adapt to changing circumstances as platforms crack down on bad actors and respond to pressure from users and advertisers. New platforms are constantly emerging, and existing ones are ever-changing ¡ª what creators have to do to succeed is always going to look different from one year to the next.
