Where in some cases if the number of likes was less than their expectation many users specially the younger ones on the platforms have a habit of deleting the posts and not feel good about themselves.

You know Instagram Is Planning to Launch Multiple Innovative Monetization Tools for Creators Instagram has been facing a bit of a crisis recently as it started to lag behind other platforms in terms of the monetization options that it could end up giving to various creators that are out there.

Did you know Facebook Doubles Down on Gaming Platform by Offering More Monetization to Creators A big part of Facebook’s strategy over the past few years has involved trying to branch out into video streaming, and Facebook Gaming in particular has been a key part of this strategy. Facebook Gaming is basically the company’s response to other streaming platforms such as Twitch which mostly focused on live streaming video game playthroughs and the like although other forms of content ended up being thrown into the mix as well. Facebook tried to incentivize gaming creators into trying their platform out to connect with fans, and part of this involved offering users the chance to give their favorite creators “Stars” which can be a part of a wider donation or contribution that a user might be making to the creator in question.
