Facebook, Instagram Unveil ‘Free Products’ For Content Creators, Available Till 2023

745ng | June 7, 2021

American media magnate and Chief Executive Officer of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, seems to be on a swift mission to attract more social media users in Nigeria when he announced free products for content creators on all Facebook-owned services including WhatsApp and Instagram.

According to Zuckerberg, the free products will enable creators to make more money, adding that the offer will be available till 2023.

“To help more creators make a living on our platforms, we’re going to keep paid online events, fan subscriptions, badges, and our upcoming independent news products free for creators until 2023. And when we do introduce a revenue share, it will be less than the 30% that Apple and others take,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.

Unlike microblogging site Twitter; Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp cannot be said to have ruffled the feathers of the Nigerian government. In fact, in August 2016, Zuckerberg visited Lagos, Nigeria. The trip was his first to sub-Saharan Africa.

“This is my first trip to sub-Saharan Africa,” he had said in a Facebook post. He had met with the Nigerian President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo during his visit. Zuckerberg also met with tech developers and entrepreneurs mostly in the Yaba area of Lagos which has been described as the tech hub of Lagos. “The energy here is amazing and I’m excited to learn as much as I can,” the Facebook chief had said during the trip.

But the Chief Executive Officer of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, has not been in the good books of the Nigerian government since last October over an allegation that he was complicit in the promotion of the #EndSARS protests that ended in the destruction of lives and billions of property in Nigeria.

Last week, the Buhari regime suspended Twitter, citing the “persistent use of the platform for activities that are capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence”. The Federal Government’s action followed a deletion of a controversial civil war post by the President.

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider
    at a reasonable price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

    I don’t even understand how I finished up right here, however
    I assumed this post was once good. I don’t recognize who you might be but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger in case you aren’t already.

    Having read this I believed it was very informative.

    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this content together.
    I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something
    which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and
    extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your
    next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to know so much approximately this, like you wrote the guide in it
    or something. I believe that you can do with a few percent to force
    the message home a little bit, however instead of that, that is great blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
