On July 14, Facebook announced plans to pay $1 billion through 2022 to users who create content for Facebook and Instagram social networks. “This investment will include new bonus programs that pay eligible creators for hitting certain milestones when they use our creative and monetization tools. We’ll also provide seed funding for creators to produce their content. Our goal is to help as many creators as possible find sustainable, long-term success on our apps.” Some of these bonuses are available now on Facebook by invitation, including the “in-stream bonus,” which pays an earnings bonus over the next four months to select video creators using in-stream ads; and the “stars bonus,” which gives creators monthly bonuses for meeting certain Stars milestones.
