YouTube celebrity Justine Ezarik, more commonly known as iJustine, stopped by the People and Entertainment Weekly stage at VidCon Thursday morning and chatted with Shira Lazar about the merits of Facebook stalking oneself, planned collaborations with fellow YouTubers, and how she deals with haters.

Ezarik had no intention of becoming Internet-famous. “I was bored. I actually just really wanted to learn to edit,” she tells Lazar. “I wanted to learn how to edit and nobody would be in my videos, so I’m like, ‘Well, fine, I’ll just film myself.’ ” The rest is history.
