This newsletter will be for the independent journalists as well as the writers.
Facebook is releasing its very own newsletter tools for the independent writers and the journalists as well. This was done in order for the independent writers and the journalists to get their very own following on the social media website, they can use this newsletter to manage their own paid subscriptions as well as curate the emails. The work on this is just in baby stages, according to Facebook. It is expected to launch around the summer season.
This news came from Facebook because the newsletters are very popular now. The Substack reported around 250,000 paying subscribers, as it is a newsletter service in the month of September of 2020. This happened just a week before the social media giant Twitter got their hands on the newsletter Revue. Seeing these surges, journalists and writers have left publications and media houses, and have started their own independent careers through these newsletter services. These writers and journalists came to newsletter services because now they can have complete creative control and the chance to get more profit out of their work.
One of Facebook’s main goal in 2021 is to upgrade its news feature, they want people to be able to get the latest news as soon as possible from high-quality journalists and writers. This is the reason they are trying their best to come up with a newsletter tools of their own. When the newsletter tools are finally released, there will definitely be a huge surge in it as Facebook is a huge social media website, being an official writer or journalist on it means one can get more followers, more opportunities and definitely more profit for their writing and journalistic talents.
