According to Meta, the company that owns Reels, Facebook’s short video feature has been made available in more countries. This is an effort to spread the reach of the social network’s fastest-growing content type.

With the expansion of Facebook Reels for iOS and Android to more than 150 countries across the world, Facebook has significantly increased its user base. They’re also offering improved methods of assisting creators in earning money, as well as new creative tools.

How to Make Money from Facebook Reels?

Reels Play Programme

Created by Meta, a range of ways for creators to earn money from their reels are being developed.

This incentive programme, which is a component of their $1 billion investment to creators, offers qualified artists up to $35,000 per month in compensation for the number of times their qualifying reels are seen. 

In the following months, they’ll expand the bonus programme to include other nations, allowing even more creators to be paid for making reels that their audiences find appealing and entertaining.

Overlay ads

As a result of their extensive expertise in assisting creators in earning a real income from their monetization solutions like in-stream ads and Stars, they are developing direct monetization alternatives for Facebook Reels, including ad revenue share and fan support. 

Tests of Facebook Reels Overlay Ads are now being made available to all creators in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, with additional countries expected to be included in the following weeks. 

They’re starting with two types of advertisements: One is banner ads, which display as a semi-transparent overlay at the bottom of a Facebook Reel.

The other one are sticker ads, which are static image ads that can be put anywhere inside a creator’s reel.  These non-interruptive advertisements allow content creators to earn a share of the advertising money generated.

Any creator in the United States, Canada, or Mexico who participates in their in-stream ads programme is instantly entitled to monetize their reels.  The testing will be extended to creators in all countries where in-stream ads are allowed by the middle of March.


They will also begin testing Stars on Facebook Reels in the coming weeks to support the creators they are watching. 

Overlay ads and Stars are intended to increase the number of people that watch Reels on Facebook, allowing creator rewards to increase as well. 

Meta has been testing full-screen and immersive advertisements in between Facebook Reels since last year. They’ll be expanding the test to other locations across the world in the coming months. 

Additional Facebook Reels Editing Tools

The following features will be available to creators all around the world, in addition to those revealed last year


Combine two or more current reels on Facebook to create a new one that may be shared with your friends. You have the option of creating a reel that contains all or part of another creator’s work in Remix.

60-second Reels

You may create reels that are up to 60 seconds in length.


The ability to construct a reel and “Save As Draft” will be available in the near future.

The use of video clipping tools

In the next months, Meta aims to provide video clipping tools for producers who post live or long-form recorded videos to experiment with multiple formats.

  1. This is only a suggestion for the CEO on Facebook Since your company is very popular however you are still left behind the updated trends in other social media and there are several reasons why other platforms may have more users than Facebook Reels:

    User Interface and Experience: other platforms have a more engaging and user-friendly interface compared to Facebook Reels. The short-form video format of other platforms is more visually appealing and easier to navigate for users compared to Facebook reels, making it longer and free music, and can be paused during taking videos. Give your best to the users and more earnings.

    Content Creation Tools: Other platforms offers a wide range of video editing tools and effects that allow users to create engaging and creative videos. In contrast, Facebook Reels’ editing tools are relatively limited.

    Algorithmic Feed: Other platforms’ algorithm is known to be more sophisticated and accurate than Facebook Reels, providing users with personalized content recommendations that keep them engaged and coming back for more.

    Demographic Appeal: Other platforms have a younger and more diverse user base compared to Facebook Reels. It has become a cultural phenomenon among users, while Facebook’s user base skews older.

    Community and Engagement: Other platforms have a highly engaged and active user community that encourages interaction through comments, likes, and shares. Facebook Reels’ engagement features are still in their early stages of development, and the platform has yet to establish a strong community around its short-form video content. Focus users that they can benefit from more income.
