Monetisation standards on Facebook

Users may have noticed that some Pages have been demonetised, as Facebook rolls out new Page criteria.


Facebook has announced a new set of guidelines for Instant Articles, Branded Content and Ad Breaks, with the release of its new Monetisation Eligibility Standards.

Brands can earn revenue through the ads that run among their content, while Facebooks wants to bring more protection to content creators, intellectual property, authenticity, and user safety.

Violators beware

Violatiing of any of these three core principles could lead to demonetisation or at the very least a notification in your support inbox. Some of the most common issues rotate around copyright and intellectual property claims.

Users cannot post content that violates someone else’s intellectual property rights or infringes on trademark. Repeated violations will result in loss of access to monetisation and no one likes being hit in the wallet.

The trick to staying in the green is following Community Standards, proper rights to IP being posted, and providing quality content. If you can adhere to that, may your Page overflow with monetary splendor.

Have you lost monetisation privileges in the wake of the new standards? What are your thoughts on Facebook’s core values? Give us your two cents in the comment section below.
