How Facebook Inc (FB) Is Looking To Monetize By Changing Rules And Forcing Entrepreneurs To Buy Ads
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)‘s strategy to show consumers less unpaid marketing in their news feeds could lead to juiced profits as it forces brands, small business owners, and entrepreneurs to turn to Facebook ads to reach their customers. Facebook, who painted the move as a desire to give the customer more of what they want, has an alterior motive, driving more monetization. The company recently announced its intentions of cutting down unpaid advertisements earlier in November. The move will cut down the reach of small businesses, brands, and young entrepreneurs who are dependent on Facebook to reach their fans and users.
May Not Go Well With Business Owners
According to a survey conducted by Webs, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB)’s decision will have tremendous impact. The survey shows that nearly 80% of small companies out of 2,292 participants use the social networking site. Dan Levy, Facebook’s Vice President of Small Business has said that paid advertising has become more effective and gives immense opportunity to entrepreneurs. Facebook is looking for businesses to take it more seriously as an organized advertising platform rather than; just as, any other social platform. The optimism of Levy, however, does not sit well with small business owners, who will now have to spend more in order to reach the Facebook fans they already have.
