Meta made announcements last week about new tools that they’re releasing for creators and also monetization options. First is they have released an Inspiration Hub for Reels. Reels, as you know, is the most popular format right now in all channels, so they’re releasing an ‘Inspiration hub’ that would give you ideas on how to create new Reels. They’re also giving you a Template Hub where you can pick templates and create Reels out of them. The editing on the mobile app has become easier with new tools. They’ve also expanded the ProMode with a new feature called Creators to Follow, which will appear in people’s newsfeed. They can follow certain creators. If you have Pro Mode turned on, you might appear on that space. The announcement also says that you can now have additional monetization options by opening up your Facebook page to your partners.
