Now people can make money from running a Facebook group. The company has brought monetization feature for Facebook groups.
Facebook is testing a new tool for this, through which group admins can earn income. The tools being tested include features such as shopping, fundraising, and subscriptions for admins.
According to Facebook, these new features will be very helpful for group admins and they will have three options for monetization.
Money can be raised through Facebook group admin community shops and fundraising. Community Shops is a feature already available on Facebook. Now the group admin will be able to sell merchandise from this too.
Through the fundraising feature, Facebook group admins will be able to raise crowdfunding for any project. Group admins will be able to generate revenue by asking users and members for money to run the group.
Another feature is the subscription. Paid subgroup (subgroup) is a feature that can be placed in a small group created for a limited number of members within the Facebook group.
This allows users who need additional content to access it by purchasing a user subscription. Subscription money is given to the group admin. There will be an option to create a sub-group in the Facebook group.
This way you can get crowdfunding by creating sub-groups. Facebook wants creators to be able to make money through groups. This will allow admins to pass certain content to the user.
However, not all Facebook groups want this feature. But many groups are still merchandising and raising funds. Facebook will not make this feature public for all groups at once.
The company will provide this feature gradually. Along with the monetization feature, other new features will also come in the Facebook group. In which new customization features will be available.
With the help of which group admin will be able to change the background color, font style, etc. of his group. There will be community chat for Facebook group admins and moderators. With the help of which they will be able to communicate well with each other.
There will also be a new featured section. In which admin contact can be copied. Apart from this, the company is also preparing to test other tools for Facebook pages and groups in the coming days.
