A Quick History of AGTube

I felt like making a quick history of AGTube just because there's so much videos and content and everything from the years that have gone by!


AGTube seemed to unofficially start in 2007, a few years after YouTube was created. Creators like starryeyeschick and xmollygirlx posted the first few videos, including the first AGSM movie, 'Annabeth'.



In 2008 and 2009, more creators kept on joining the platform, including stephenswodadancer, GirloftheYearStudios, and Basilmentos: the queens of AGTube around the early 2010's.




Over these next few years, AGTube flourished. Many trends were created, including the AGMV, AGSM movie, and AGLV series. Music in Me by GirlOfTheYearStudios, Aspen Heights by AGSmiless and Plot Twist by staticandcontraband were among the most popular series, and hit movies included literally anything by Basilmentos and Eloise and The Talent Show by Rockstar13studios, who eventually turned it into a live action film. There was even an awards show created- the Sophie Awards, which is still running today.




2015-2016 were definitely the peak of AGTube, in my opinion. AGSM movies were getting bigger and bigger (Mermaid Cove! Wildwood!), media outlets like BBC Trending did stories on AGTube, and even AG joined in with Z Crew.
