A number of new creator updates are being introduced by Meta on social media. The company said that creators will be able to create their own NFTs and sell them directly to fans on and off the photo sharing service. This update will give creators access to a toolkit that will help them sell NFTs. The first partner that Meta chose for this feature was Polygon.
The NFTs will be available for purchase on the app. Traditional in-app purchases will be used for the process. The creators will not be getting a cut of their revenues at this time. Meta is testing a new feature with a small group of creators in the US and plans to expand it to more countries in the future.
Adding support for the Solana and Phantom wallet is one of the things that will be added by the photo sharing service. Information for select collections that have been enriched by OpenSea will be available on the social network.
All eligible creators in the U.S. will now be able to subscribe to the social network. The feature allows creators to give their followers paid access. A special badge is given to subscribers to help them stand out.
Facebook is increasing access to Stars, which will allow creators to make money from followers on Reels, live and video on demand. The ability to send stars will automatically appear on creators' content as a result of Facebook's testing. Photos and text posts are some of the non- video content that is being brought Stars to.
Facebook is introducing Stars Party for creators who already use Stars. If the creator reaches their goal, a Stars Party ends in a celebration.
More tools are being given to creators on Facebook to engage with people who send stars. It will be possible for creators to reply to multiple comments at the same time if they add a filter that displays all of their Stars comments in one place.
Meta is giving creators a new way to make money from their fans by giving them gifts on the photo sharing site. Fans can send gifts on reels by purchasing stars on the photo sharing site. The feature is being tested with a small group of creators in the U.S.
Meta is making its professional-mode profile setting available to all creators. The professional mode is for creators who want to monetize their followers on the social network. In December of 2021, Facebook began testing professional mode with a select group of creators.
Meta sees the potential in a new revenue stream that comes from things like creator subscriptions as it invests in its creator user base.
The threat from TikTok, which has attracted a growing number of creators, is one of the reasons why the platform is being shored up. As Meta builds the metaverse, it will need the support of creators so it is looking to broaden its offerings.
