Last week I wrote about Charice, one of the Top Women on YouTube, who found stardom by becoming a YouTube singing sensation turned mainstream artist. The feedback was overwhelming and it inspired me to write about other women who have found fame via YouTube.

It’s easier these days to become whatever you desire to be. Technology has become a medium to becoming a millionaire, a global sensation or an instant bestselling author. Though many believe women lag behind men when it comes to getting promoted, on the Internet it isn’t quite so.

There are many stars today catching their break via social networking (ex: Tila Tequila, who found fame through MySpace). Many regular folk use YouTube, for example, to display their talent, only to be later discovered by the Oprah or Ellen show –becoming celebrities overnight.
