Jalen Brooks is a popular American social media star who rose to fame as a Viner and proceeded to become even more popular on the app Musical.ly (now known as TikTok). Just a young teen when he ventured into the world of social media, he first made an account on Vine, a networking platform where people could share short videos. Though initially Jalen started posting on Vine just as a means of entertainment, he soon realized that he had accumulated a small but sincere tribe of followers who looked forward to his videos! This gave the young boy the motivation to post more regularly, and he collaborated with his brother Tre, in doing so. Within months, his Vine account ‘JayFamous’ became a hugely popular one. His success on Vine gave Jalen the impetus into exploring other social media platforms as well, and he soon made a TikTok account for himself. He enjoyed similar success on TikTok, and before long accumulated over 110k fans on his ‘itstherealjalen’ account. Though the app Vine has since been disabled, it hasn’t affected Jalen much as he is now active on other social media platforms where he continues to enthrall his fans.
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Up until a few years ago, Jalen Brooks was just another young teenager grappling with the typical issues every teenager deals with. He took to the social media to cope with his teenage angst and that’s how his journey to stardom began. His twin brother Tre had already ventured into the world of social media with accounts in Vine and TikTok and he introduced Jalen to these platforms as well. Jalen marked his online presence with an account on Vine and soon became a popular Viner with a considerable fan base. Eventually he started posting on TikTok also. His videos on the TikTok app were met with considerable enthusiasm and within a couple of years he gained over 110k followers on his account.
Taking forward his budding online career, he started a YouTube channel. Around this time, he also began actively posting on Twitter and Instagram. Since he has ventured into these platforms only recently, he is yet to build a substantial fan following for himself. As of June 2017, he has over 3k followers on his YouTube channel. We are sure the number would increase with time as Jalen becomes more famous as a teenage online personality. He is an avid user of Snapchat and can be found under the account ‘itslifewjalen.’ Additionally, he is active on Kik as well, where his username is ‘lifewjalen.’
