1 what facebook is all about

Facebook keeps people connected. That is quite a simple answer but it provides the amazing features like sharing content like pictures, videos, articles and anything you name. You can put up status and check-ins too anywhere and anytime of the day. it has also opened the option of tagging, writing on walls and sharing the very own content too.

The answer is sadly no. Facebook doesn’t allow its users to get paid for any stuff, original or copied, no matter what. Considering other websites like youtube, dailymotion and other content sharing websites, Facebook lacks this feature that keeps it a topic of debate among circles. Users are in high anticipation to get this service activated by Facebook. But Facebook has got its reasons to not make it as commercial as other sites.

Why it doesn’t allow content sharing to be paid?

According to surveys done by facebook, they reached to a conclusion that most of the users want to see an environment that is ad free.

On asking people about their opinion of promotional ads that are usually the main source of generating revenue for the venture, they said it would be better to see much posts by users than promotional posts. Facebook focuses on the social interactions and communication process of the users keeping the business and finance aside. If it starts paying its users for sharing their content, they would have to generate a large revenue through pop up ads. That would make its users frustrated and the uniqueness of facebook would fade its color off.

Youtube and dialymotion are those sort of websites that purely emphasizes on business aspect of the market. You share your stuff and you get paid for the views or likes on your posts. Its quite simple and easy to understand.

The videos being shared again and again by the users will get you earn your stake. The website pays the user through the revenue they generate by posting ads within the content users share. That needs to get the promotional advertisements to large extent. This, in case of Facebook is impossible since it’s a social media website that aims to connect people together.
