Facebook will apparently allow content creators on its platform to earn some revenue from short-form videos via advertisements, the social giant announced on Thursday 11 March.
The announcement came in a blog where the company detailed its plans to help content creators make more money, as smaller tech rivals have been racing to attract famous social media personalities.
Facebook said now its content creators can now earn ad revenue from videos as short as one minute, down from three minutes previously.
The social media company has also began to test ads that look like stickers, which content creators can use in their Facebook Stories to earn money.
More creators can now qualify to earn ad revenue from live-streaming videos on Facebook, than previously were it was an invite-only program.
The social media giant said it would also give away $7 million in free Facebook Stars, which users can pay to creators on Facebook Live as a form of tipping.
I guess its never too late to makeup for things (well considering the trouble the company has been in, in the past). These are some over due features in my opinion, but again better late than never.
