First Look: ViewStats – a Powerful Analytics Platform Launched in Beta by MrBeast

The top YouTuber in the U.S., MrBeast (Jimmy Donaldson) co-founded the new analytics platform ViewStats, which is now available in beta. Similar to tools like Socialblade, ViewStats uses the YouTube API to unveil detailed stats about channels that both creators and their fans can see. So, if he thinks certain metrics are a must-have for an analytics platform, they’re probably important. Founded alongside Chucky Appleby, a creator who works with MrBeast, ViewStats is differentiating itself with this star power. Appleby said that the platform will add more tools in the future, including thumbnail analytics tools.
