Austin Yerger Talks With TMI About His Crazy “Social Media Life”

How would you describe yourself in 5 words?

If I had to choose 5 words to describe my self, I would choose fun, outgoing, funny, smart, and patient.

How do you want your relationship to be like with your supporters?

I want them feel like we have known each other forever and have been best friends that can just relate on so many things together.

What’s the feeling you get when meeting your supporters?

When meeting supporters, bursts of happiness, LITERALLY.

What’s something you have that you can’t live without?

This is a hard question, I couldn’t live without my family, also couldn’t live without all of my friends that are right at my fingertips.

You also broadcast on YouNow. How often do you try to broadcast on YouNow?

I try to broadcast on YouNow at or around 6:00 pm (EST). That is the time that my supporters are familiar with me being live at.

What are some things you do during your YouNows?

The things I do on YouNow vary, one day I could be just talking to supporters, another day I could be going on an adventure somewhere, I also do dares /challenges.

How do you manage school with your busy schedule?

School is done first so I don’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day, I even do some extra work to get ahead of my schoolwork so I can have a break for a day or two.

Can you tell us how you first got into Social Media?

I started on YouNow with my little iPod just talking and being crazy and people seemed to like it and then after awhile, I upgraded to an iPhone, after an iPhone, then I bought my Macbook. I just continued and I have become what I am today.

What’s your favorite platform to post on?

My favorite platform is Instagram, I love taking pictures, I love seeing my supporters pictures, I love dming with them, its just an awesome platform that I love so much.

Are you going to stick with social media and try to make a career out of it?

That is the plan and I will try, social media can be really fun, and yes, it would be awesome to make a career out of it.

What has your “social media life’ been like for you?

Social media life is crazy with everything that goes on, but it has been awesome, social media is honestly amazing.

Has it been hard to grow an audience of over 30K on Instagram?

It is pretty time consuming but it is fun growing a base of your own with so many awesome people. You meet so many great people along the way.

Do you have fans that recognize you in public?

Im still not used to it, I was in New York City and I had fans waiting for me outside the restaurant I was eating at to get a picture with me.

Can you tell us about any fun projects you have in the works? 

I just had meetings in Los Angeles with Viacom who owns MTV, Vidcon, & AwsomenessTV about future projects.  Hopefully I’ll have some exciting news soon.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to do this interview with us.
