Facebook had recently announced 4 new Monetization Features for creators, in an attempt to lure creators away from competitor platforms like YouTube and Twitch,
Here are some of the features that they will be introducing:
1) Brand Collabs Manager (updated with better analytics for audience engagement and ad targeting)
2) Creator Studio (updated with an Ad Breaks Manager & Monetization Dashboard for Facebook, Instagram and IGTV)
3) Facebook is testing out "Stars" - which allows users to tip their favourite streamers (that is currently only available for gaming live streams)
4) Monetization Features for Groups ie. you can run a subscription based membership & Facebook would take a 30% cut.
What are your thoughts on all these new features? Do you think Facebook has potential to become the dominant platform for video and beat YouTube?
