In July of this year, Meta’s (formerly Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the company plans to pay creators $1 billion by the end of 2022. Although we didn’t disclose much at the time, we now have some information on how the company plans to spend the money due to a new report released by The Information. The source cited pointed out that Facebook, owned by Meta, will pay creators up to $50,000 to use the platform’s Live Audio Rooms feature.
Audio Rooms is Meta’s response to the live audio application Clubhouse, which has taken the world by storm after its launch. In addition, Meta’s photo-sharing application Instagram also pays creators up to $35,000 to post it on the platform. According to the report, “Facebook is now proposing to pay between US$10,000 and US$50,000 to musicians and other creators to purchase its 5-month-old live audio products and pay guests US$10,000 or more. ”
According to reports, in exchange for the money, Facebook wants creators on the platform to host 4 to 6 meetings of at least 30 minutes. Recall that Facebook launched an audio service; a live audio room and podcast in June. The company once stated that “audiences in the United States will be able to listen to selected podcasts.”
The administrator hosting the Live Audio Room can choose a non-profit organization or fundraising event to support during the conversation. Facebook stated that “listeners and speakers can directly Donate.”
Facebook allows the host to add up to 50 speakers to the live audio session. There is no limit to the number of listeners, so anyone can join any live audio room on Facebook.
