Bring Your Own Opinion on Teenage Influencers
The teenage influencer market is already worth a billion dollars and this is set to double in the next year. What are the implications for these teens who shoot to internet stardom so quickly and how does the role of their parents change when money gets involved?
These are just some of the questions we address on this week’s episode of BYOO. Before listening, check out the documentary Teen Boss which is part of the Follow This series on Netflix. Scaachi Koul, Culture Reporter for Buzzfeed News, follows the story of Danielle Kohn who rose to fame at only 14 years old through the lip- synching app Tiik Tok (formerly Musical.ly) and now has over 10 million followers and a budding pop career.
