    You're using the platform to share your content - you're a youtuber already, in my opinion
    Fresh one or an old-timer, fast growing one/slow growing one, consistent or not - still a youtuber

    [And it's not that I'm stating that I have to do something with YT to every single person I meet everyday though. No, not at all. It's just about the term for me. Youtubers "youtube", so to say, and that's what I do]

    I think once you have a few videos on your channel and you're taking it semi-seriously than you're a YouTuber.

    I considered myself a YouTuber as soon as I created a channel and started uploading videos. Even with few subs/views.. I was doing it!

    I'm one of the negative Nancies I guess in that I don't call myself a "Youtuber" but rather someone who does Youtube in their spare time. I dunno. I feel like you need to be somewhat known to claim that. It's kind of like that Christian Burns douche that claims he's an "Instagram Model" right? Not judging or discrediting anyone who feels they are obviously. You are what you feel you are. I just feel like I'm not "big" enough on YT to claim that.

    I'd say you're a youtuber as soon as you start uploading and being consistent with it. Once you hit a certain level, then you become an "influencer."

    Yeah I think THAT is the real difference @Brandt Prescott
    because being a Youtuber can just mean you are YoutubeING- like uploading consistently maybe a SMIDGE more than a hobby though.

    I dont think i'll ever use youtuber.

    If someone asks what i do in my spare time and i want to tell them about my channel,
    i say "i run a channel its about .. "

    Its not my profession and it feels kind of forced

    When other people say you are, you are.

    I'd support several people who said the term Youtuber doesn't depend on income or channel size, as opposed to know how well you know the ins and outs and how long you've been at it. Of course it would be kinda showoffy if you tell someone you're a youtuber and have like 50 subs.

    I think you are a YouTuber once you post public videos on YouTube. If you stop posting videos (but they still reside publicly on a channel), then I'd say you "used to be" a YouTuber, and aren't anymore -- but could always start back up again. ^_^ I think "YouTuber" is best used to define someone who actively posts videos on YouTube, regardless of income and channel size.
