Youtubers in the media context are audience leaders on YouTube and in parallel they exercise a charismatic power among their subscribers that make them great influencers among them, although we do not have an objective tool to study their media competence. In order to measure the leadership capacity and charisma of youtubers, a study model of media competence was designed for YouTube. The methodology used has been quantitative and qualitative, through non-participant observation using statistics compiled by the website specialized in auditing YouTube channels SocialBlade. The results showed that the content and language used in the videos was very attractive to subscribers and this generated a great interaction between them and with youtubers. This analysis helps us understand why youtubers are interested in Spanish minors, what kind of authority they have over them and their consequences and establishes a valid study model to analyze media competence on YouTube.
