Who is Cole Galotti?

Cole Galotti was born on 8 March 2001, in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, and is a social media personality, best known for gaining fame on major social media websites such as Instagram, on which he has been very active since his teens. He also has a significant following on YouTube and TikTok.


The Wealth of Cole Galotti

How rich is Cole Galotti? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $300,000, earned through success in his numerous endeavors. His online fame has led him to numerous opportunities, including collaborations with other popular online stars. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Online Beginnings

While there is limited information regarding Cole’s early life, including his family and education, it is known that he grew up with a brother as well as a younger sister. At the age of 13, he discovered social media and started experimenting with creating various accounts, but never really thought much of it until a year later, when he decided to try his hand at creating videos on the website YouTube, subsequently setting up his account.

YouTube was the idea of three former PayPal employees but was later bought by Google which turned it into one of the most popular websites in the internet. The website allows users to create and upload their own videos which can be viewed by others. YouTube allows interaction through the use of ratings, comments, subscriptions, likes, and many more. The website contains various types of video content including live streams, video blogs (vlogs), movie trailers, music videos, short films, and many more. It has become one of the main sources of video related content on the internet and has brought about the rise of various online celebrities known as YouTubers.

Expanding Reach

A few months after posting his first video on YouTube, Galotti created a Twitter account and started building his online fame there. The social networking site allows users to post and interact with each other’s messages known as tweets. Users can post, like, retweet, and reply to other users tweets. It was created in 2006 and rapidly gained popularity with over 321 million monthly active users. The website has been known for being the largest source of breaking news for a day, and it has also become a hotbed of debates when it comes to various political spheres.

A year later, he created an account on Instagram which is a photo and video sharing social networking service owned by Facebook. The website allows users to post these types of media which can then be easily edited and sorted through Instagram’s features. Since its launch, it has become one of the largest social networking websites in the world with over 500 million users daily and around 1 billion registered users. The popularity of the website has stood tests and criticisms, especially with its policy which tends to go through abrupt changes.

Recent Projects

Continuing Cole’s efforts in increasing his social media fame, he started building a fan base on the social networking app TikTok, which was previously known as Musical.ly. The application allows users to create short music videos ranging from three to 15 seconds and looping videos which can reach up to a minute. It is the leading short video platform in several regions such as the United States and Asia. The app has at least 500 million users globally and its current merged version launched sometime in 2018.

He is also active with live streaming, using the service known as YouNow in which users can broadcast real time to others. Most of the website’s users are under 24 years old and streams often consist of chatting, performing, and interaction. The website competed with Meerkat and Periscope, gaining significant popularity sometime in 2014 after changes were made to the service. However, in recent years, the website has lost a bit of fame due to the popularity of competitors such as Live.me and Twitch.tv. The three competitors have been known to copy each other’s features in hopes of retaining or increasing their current user base.

Personal Life

For his personal life, it is known that Galotti started dating fellow social media personality Danielle Cohn in 2017. His popularity grew significantly with their relationship, though it came with a lot of controversy as soon as they went public with their romantic affair. Rumors started spreading that he was cheating in their relationship with a girl named Kay McDonald. In an effort to try and kill the rumors, he defended himself, stating that he and McDonald’s relationship happened before he started dating Cohn.

However, incriminating conversations between the two that imply he was cheating started circulating on the internet – these photos were later confirmed to be fake and photo shopped. He continued to explain and refute most of the negative rumors about him, stating that he did not cheat even though the two have had fights here and there. He also denied having sex with anyone else as he was a virgin. Despite all of his efforts, their rocky relationship eventually ended with the two breaking up later in the year. Since then he’s been single, and hasn’t posted anything about a new relationship. He often posts photos of himself, along with fans whom he encounters while in public.
