“We want to build the best platforms for millions of creators to make a living, so we’re creating new programs to invest over $1 billion to reward creators for great content they create on Facebook and Instagram through 2022.” Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook wall.

“Investing in creators isn’t new for us, but I’m excited to expand this work over time. More details soon,” he added.
