What is a ‘zoomer’?
It’s a term used by people who are bored of social media, so they begin to create short video clips.
Zoomers are bored with the monotony of existing 3-4 minute videos on Facebook or YouTube, and cannot handle looking at more than ten seconds of a meme, text art, or GIF. Many choose to relegate themselves to their phone for 15 minutes in order to construct 10-second vids from whatever is around them. They’re also typically not public figures – otherwise what would be the point? For example Taylor Swift when she was feeling punk about having her newest release not go number one on Billboard charts stuck a zoomer down her skirt backstage just 10 feet away from where her fans were waiting in line for signatures?
Zoomer culture has recently exploded – over 500,000 people have subscribed to the Pogobotz official YouTube channel that features 10-second clips of things moving very fast or movement blurring with text on it.
