Social Blade was founded in 2008 by Jason Urgo to track statistics of the then-popular website Digg. In 2010, we switched to tracking YouTube statistics. In 2013, we expanded our scope by adding Twitch statistics, in 2014 Instagram statistics, and in 2016 we added Twitter statistics.
Social Blade was officially incorporated in 2012, and has gone from being Urgo's part-time hobby to a full-fledged business with a full team helping to run the company.
