You’ll be astounded when you learn how much YouTube’s richest stars are earning – even after YouTube’s 45% cut.
And some of them are under 10 years old. The foul-mouthed #1 star is PewDiePie, aka Felix Arvid Ulf Kjelberg, who is a video game commentator. His channel, which has nearly 24 million subscribers, has had nearly 4 billion (yes, billion!) views. His earnings? They’ll blow your mind.

David Erickson & I discussed the stars and the numbers on episode 55 of The Beyond Social Media Show.
