In 2015, three-year-old Ryan Guan asked his mother if “he could be on YouTube, like other kids”. His parents obliged, creating his own channel, Ryan’s ToysReview, where they uploaded footage of him playing with toys. Since then, he’s gone on to have 30 million subscribers and Ryan himself is said to have a net worth of more than $30m. But is it right to let children become influencers? To discuss this further Shane was joined this morning on the show by Dr Irene McCormick Leader of The Creative Hub at IT Carlow & Lecturer in Media Studies .
