Influencer Database ‘Famous Birthdays’ Launches Video Platform With Top Gen Z Stars

Famous Birthdays wants to be more than just the Wikipedia for the young social media set -- an online database comprising birthdays and interesting factoids about the world’s buzziest influencers.

Today, the company launched a video platform that has been in the works since the beginning of the year. Founder Evan Britton tells Tubefilter that Famous Birthdays’ video efforts will function with the same philosophy as its flagship site: users will determine which celebrities are trending via searches and on-site voting (known as ‘boosting’), and the company will create videos with top-trending personalities. The clips -- all unscripted -- will fall into five categories: Q&As, games and challenges, event coverage, performances, and birthday-themed content.

Given that Famous Birthdays’ audience tends to skew toward Gen Z, Britton says that it has invited several tween influencers to its Santa Monica offices over the past few months to shoot original content.
