Instagram Is Offering Eligible Users Up To $10,000 To Use The Reels Feature

 Just as the holiday season is approaching, people are always looking for ways to receive some extra money, and it looks like Instagram may have a solution.

The company is giving users an incentive to receive some extra cash by using their Reels feature. The Reels feature, which was introduced in August 2020, is similar to the popular application TikTok, where users can record and edit 15-second multi-clip videos with audio, effects, and new creative tools.

According to Tech Crunch, Instagram is dishing out bonuses up to $10,000 for creating Reels, a program that started in July. Maddy Corbin, who has 52,000 followers on Instagram, was recently offered up to $1,000 for Reels in a month. However, it doesn’t appear that all content creators are receiving the same payout amount. “I saw some people that had more followers than me, and they could only make $600,” Maddy told TechCrunch. She says that users with fewer followers were offered $800. “I wish I knew more on how that was generated. All I can think of is maybe it’s based off of past reels’ performance,” Maddy stated.

Instagram spoke with TechCrunch about the pricing difference in payouts stating, “We’re continuing to test payments as we roll out to more creators, and expect them to fluctuate while we’re still getting started. We’ve designed bonuses so that we can help as many creators as we can in a way that is achievable and drives meaningful earnings. Our goal is for bonuses to become more personalized over time.”

Although the program has been around, this month, Instagram kicked the bonus up a notch to keep up with TikTok, as the platform surpassed 1 billion monthly active users. Several competitor platforms like YouTube Shorts and Snapchat Spotlight have also introduced an incentivizing feature for users to post their short-form content on their apps instead of TikTok.

Donald Trump

@HuffPost reports, during an interview with FOX News following the confirmation that Elon Musk was officially the new owner of Twitter, Donald Trump assured his fanbase that despite the new ownership he will not be returning—choosing instead to use his own Truth Social platform that was launched back in February. “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth,” he said, before adding that he thinks that Elon Musk will likely “make improvements” to Twitter and stated that [Musk is] a “good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”

Trump wasn’t done with his comments and also took the time to claim that his platform is doing better than Twitter:

“We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on Truth is much better than being on Twitter. Twitter has bots and fake accounts, and we are doing everything we can. The bottom line is, no, I am not going back to Twitter. We want liberty and justice and fairness in our country, and the more we can have open, the better. I don’t view that [Musk’s Twitter] as a competition for what I am doing.”

 As we previously reported earlier today, after weeks of intense speculation, it was finally made official that Elon Musk would be the new owner of the company after purchasing it for $44 billion.

TikTok & Netflix Suspends Services In Russia Amid The Ongoing Invasion Of Ukraine–TikTok Suspends New Content & Live Streaming Due To New ‘Fake News’ Law 

The list of companies that have suspended their services in Russia continues to grow. On Sunday, TikTok and Netflix joined the list. TikTok has not completely suspended the use of their app, but only certain features. While a rep for Netflix has confirmed that the streaming service has been suspended in Russia.

According to NBC News, on Sunday, TikTok announced, that they have suspended new content and live streaming abilities on their platform in Russia. The suspension is due to Russia’s new “fake news” law, which has now made it an offense to “disseminate what it described as ‘fake’ information about the country’s armed forces.” TikTok said in a statement, “In light of Russia’s new ‘fake news’ law, we have no choice but to suspend live streaming and new content to our video service in Russia while we review the safety implications of this law.”

They continued to say, “Our in-app messaging service will not be affected. We will continue to evaluate the evolving circumstances in Russia to determine when we might fully resume our services with safety as our top priority.”

However, when it comes to Netflix, their service has been suspended in the country. The Hollywood Reporter states that a Netflix rep said, “Given the circumstances on the ground, we have decided to suspend our service in Russia.”

Many major companies such as Disney and Warner Bros. have announced that they were pulling their films from the country due to the invasion.

As previously reported, earlier this week, Apple announced that it would suspend product sales in Russia, and limit the access to some of their digital services.
