As part of its efforts to aid individuals who want to earn more on the Facebook app, Meta has introduced a new monetization method for its creators. The firm is releasing its music revenue sharing feature, which will allow artists to earn extra money by publishing videos with licensed music.

According to a Facebook blog post: “With Music Revenue Sharing, video creators can create and share videos featuring music from an expansive catalog of licensed songs without worrying if the music has been licensed by rightsholders. Video creators will receive 20% revenue share on eligible videos, with a separate share going to [the music] rightsholders and to Meta”.

The new function will be available internationally, but initially just in the United States. 

To be eligible:

  • Videos need to be a minimum of one minute long
  • The music used must be from Facebook’s licensed music collection
  • Video must include “a visual component”
  • It cannot be only for the purpose of sharing a music audio track

The feature is already rolling out so do keep an eye out for that if you’re interested!
