Mobile, unsurprisingly, is making it easier than ever to create and share content in new and interesting ways. With apps like Vine, Instagram and Snapchat that create content specifically for and by the mobile audience, there are creators that inevitably stand out and catch the attentions and imaginations of brands and their followers.
We’ve highlighted just a few folks that are generating a lot of interest in this space and have the follower count to boast it. They’re working with incredible brands of all sorts and have a captivated audience that continues to be charmed by the short-form content they specialize in, whether they are Instagram photos or videos, Vine clips, or Snapchat Stories.

Viners of Note
Brittany Furlan ranks within the top 5 creators on the platform. When taking a look at her profile, it’s easy to see why. Brittany has a keen sense of comic timing and her own brand of slapstick that marries well with Vine’s 6-second limitations. Here’s a Vine she created just for Jack in the Box:
Jack and Jack are comprised of comedy duo Jack Johnson and Jack Gilinsky that are making videos on Vine that Gen Z’ers relate to and find hilarious. They have 4.5 million followers on the platform and are quickly approaching 1 billion loops.
Snapchatter of Note
Going viral on a social platform that prides itself in creating content that disappears takes a heap of talent to stand out in. Shaun McBride aka Shonduras accrued over 140,000 followers and was courted by brands like Taco Bell, Disney and MLS, for his adept skills at combining real photos with hand drawn overlays that are quite fantastical. We featured him previously on [a]listdaily here.
