Canada Global(web news)_META has launched the Facebook Monetization ‘STARS’ program in Pakistan which was announced yesterday by Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari during his visit to META’s Asia Pacific Headquarters in Singapore.
So this feature is a bit old but Pakistani users have been declared eligible for it recently.
Bilawal said during his video released on social media that ‘people who are using Facebook and Instagram, the more stars they get, the more money they will be able to earn.’
This development was appreciated by some content creators, but some say that features like in-stream ads should be given to users in Pakistan which would be more beneficial
?What is the Facebook Stars program
Facebook Stars is a feature that allows an average user or content creator to monetize their video, photo or written content (ie earn money from videos, photos or other content).
Users who view these posts (i.e. your fans) can buy and send stars to you. These stars can be sent to your live or on-demand videos. Facebook will give you USD 0.01 for each Star.
Stars on public posts are self-activating while a content creator must agree to partner monetization and content monetization policies and follow the rules to monetize the stars received.
Facebook has divided this program into gaming and non-gaming category. To earn money through the Facebook Stars program, you must have at least 1,000 followers for 60 consecutive days, agree to and follow all rules, and be 18 years of age or older. .
Apart from this, branded content and content can also be monetized through in-stream ads.
