However, according to Facebook, whenever the company will be taking a cut from the payout of the content creators, it’ll be less than 30 percent as compared to other tech companies especially Apple. Currently, Apple is taking more than 30 percent from the affiliate products posted by the influencers or content creators. Facebook’s decision to not take any revenue generated from affiliate products from content creators because it wants to attract more users towards the platform. In a nutshell, the social media firm has bigger goals to have more users on its platforms than any other social networking medium.

The announcement from Zuckerberg is considered a final nail in the coffin of the long-running feud between Apple and Facebook itself.  The feud happened when Apple updated its privacy policy against its personalized ads and track the performance of various social media platforms. Furthermore, several social media apps including Facebook had criticized Apple over its strict rules on the App Store. On the contrary, Apple has been criticizing social media apps as their advertising models rely on tracking users’ activities to sell relevant ads.

After the new update, the creators on Instagram and Facebook will be able to earn extra revenue, when they have reached certain milestones such as going live with another account of business account or sponsor account. As per the reports, Facebook Inc. is also testing a new affiliate tool that will allow the content creators or influencers to share with their followers and earn commissions in return.
