Facebook has been a platform where we all share our status updates, photos and videos, but it has also been a place to become famous. This is thanks in part to the ability to livestream on Facebook, especially with Facebook Gaming. Between getting sponsorships, earning money from subscribers and more, Facebook users are finding more ways than ever to become rich. Who are the wealthiest among the pack, though? Here are the five richest Facebook personalities.
5. Darkness429 ($1.5 Million)
Most people have a full time job that runs from 9am to 5pm, and Darkness429 is no exception. However, his job is playing video games for thousands of people on Facebook Gaming. Now, Darkness429 is one of the most followed people on the platform, and the Tampa, Florida native specializes in the game “Escape from Tarkov” (though he’s good at just every first person shooter). He’s also popular on YouTube and Instagram, helping to earn him some extra money away from his full time streaming gig.
4. Alodia Gosiengfiao ($1.6 Million)
The first entry on the list from the Philippines is Alodia Gosiengfiao, who was born in March 1988 and earned recognition from her cosplaying photos on the internet. Back in 2018, Gosiengfiao signed a contract with Facebook gaming to make her instantly one of the highest paid people on the platform. Though she wasn’t too well versed in making video game content at first, Gosiengfiao found her stride and earned millions of followers and dollars in the process.
3. ChooxTv ($2 Million)
A native of the Philippines, ChooxTv has over 13 million followers on Facebook gaming. Among the richest non-Americans on Facebook, Choox spends most of his time streaming games such as Mobile Legends, which has earned him most of his views in recent months. Every video that he posts tends to get over 100,000 likes on Facebook as well as thousands of comments from his fans. Having a YouTube channel also helps, padding his net worth to the point of $2 million USD.
2. StoneMountain64 ($3.5 Million)
David Steinberg, aka StoneMountain64, is one of the original people that got popular on the Facebook Gaming platform. Steinberg had been uploading gaming videos to YouTube since back in 2011, and in 2015 started to use Facebook to upload his videos more frequently. Shortly thereafter, Steinberg was one of the first to ink a partnership deal to make him a full time streamer on the platform. Now with millions of followers, he’s worth millions of dollars and has over 1 billion minutes viewed on his videos in just one year.
1. Disguised Toast ($5 Million)
Born in Taiwan, Jeremy Wang moved to Canada at a young age where he learned to work with software, creating apps for major brands like Mercedes Benz and the NFL. After spending years behind the scenes, Wang started streaming on his own, earning himself a big following on Twitch by playing “League of Legends” among other games. Then, Yang took his talents to Facebook Gaming where he inked a large contract that earned him millions. Now, he’s at the top of the earnings board and is worth an estimated $5 million and a Streamer Award for Best Strategy Game Streamer.
