Can I earn from Facebook reels?

Starting today, we are offering Reels Play – new bonus programs on Facebook and Instagram that allow you to earn money for the Reels you share.

Reels Play on Facebook will pay a bonus to eligible Facebook creators whose Reels get at least 1000 views over a 30-day period on Facebook.

Reels are short videos up to 60 seconds in length that users can enhance with special effects and music.

Prior to the announcement, content creators on the site could only include ads in their Facebook videos.

Meta also announced that it will soon allow viewers to send stars to a content creator while watching their Reels.

For every star received, the creator gets one cent from Meta.

The Reels Play bonus program pays creators up to $35,000 per month, but it’s an invite-only feature.
