Kid influencers: Few rules, big money

How Kids Turn Into Influencers

Being a social media influencer is now considered one of the most popular career aspirations for millennials and Gen Z. But experts warn that regulations need to be put in place as younger and younger influencers share their lives on camera. This episode of CBSN Originals looks at the lives of three families whose kids are popular influencers on social media, while exploring some of the dangers implicit in the “kidfluencer” industry.

YouTube Fame’s Highs and Lows—One Family’s Experience

``A year after controversies, the McClure family thrives on social media``

Why would regular people choose to make their lives public on social media? And for those who have found fame, what are their lives like?

To find out, I got in touch with the McClures of New Jersey, aka the “McClure Twins Family,” who catapulted to YouTube stardom three years ago, then soon discovered the downside of internet fame. They’re not the Kardashians, but they’re recognizable enough to attract selfie-seeking fans at amusement parks, as well as detractors who have combed through their pasts.

Minutes after watching their guests for the day park on the curb of a picturesque New Jersey abode, a set of smiling faces come to the door. The cheerful hosts, lively five-year-old twin girls, chat about the clattering change in their rainbow-colored rubber wallets and shower their visitors with salutations. Shortly after admiring their father’s production room and fan-created art of their family of five, the identical twin cuties lead a photoshoot in their living room. In true twin fashion, they own matching pink Instax Mini Polaroid cameras.

Ami McClure as told to Elena Sheppard | Yahoo Lifestyle

Ami McClure is best known as the mom to the McClure twins, Ava and Alexis. The twins have 1.5 million Instagram followers and over 1 million YouTube subscribers, and they were named among the top 10 kid influencers by Forbes. Ami and her husband, Justin, also have an infant son, Jersey. Earlier this year, it became public knowledge that Justin was not the twins’ biological father. In an essay exclusively for Yahoo Lifestyle, Ami shares why the family held off on sharing that information with the public, and what it’s like to be the mom of two of Instagram’s biggest child stars.
