YouTube Career

After dropping out of the University of Cincinnati, Fischbach started on YouTube September 29, 2012 where he had a first channel with very few views and subscribers. On May 26th, 2012, Mark started a second channel called MarkiplierGame which gained over 20 million subscribers and over 8 billion total video views over time from collabs and playing and reacting to popular games from back then, like Amnesia, and games quite popular right now, making him have 30th most subscribed YouTube channel.

He now focuses mainly on "Let's Plays" and indie games but has started to do mailtime videos to try to connect with fans more often and always does special videos when he hits a million subscriber milestone. He also tends to play many simulator games.

Markiplier worked with the team, Cyndago, until one of the members, Daniel Kyre, which was his best friend, attempted suicide on September 16, 2015 and to everyone who loved him's disapointment, died a tragic death two days later while laying in a hospital bed. After the disbandment of the Cyndago crew, Markiplier temporarily halted uploads on YouTube and went on hiatus from September 17 to October 5, 2015 from the extreme sadness of Daniel's death.

In his YouTube career, he has raised over $1,000,000 for a variety of charities.
