YouTube is one of the biggest sources of video media on the internet and is one of the most popular websites in the web as well. It is a video sharing service which allows users to post videos which can then be viewed by others. Videos which can be seen on the website include short films, educational videos, movie trailers, live streams, video clips, and many more. Zaira created her channel in 2012, at a time when several video gamers were already gaining attention on the website.
Zaira began her channel by creating videos of herself playing the video game “Slender: The Eight Pages”, which was gaining a huge amount of popularity online, thanks to its coverage by numerous popular YouTube personalities. The game is a free independently-developed survival horror game, which is based on internet folklore around the figure known as the Slender Man. The figure is depicted as a tall man wearing all black, and has a white face with no features. The character has been described in fiction as abducting children in dark settings, such as abandoned buildings and deep forests.
Eventually the novelty of the game faded, and she decided to play other games, mostly those focused on a younger audience. One she started playing was “Roblox”, which is a massively multiplayer online game which allows players to design their own games for others to play. The platform hosts numerous user-created games and virtual worlds based on various genre. Games which can be found on the platform include simulations, role-playing, obstacle courses, and many more. The game has become very popular, and now has over 90 million active users. Her “Roblox” content is one of the most popular on her channel.
