Facebook to Take Cut of Creator Profits-
Creators who have been charging fans $4.99 per month in exchange for access to exclusive content and a fan badge, take note. FB wants a part of the action.

“…Facebook is committed to allowing creators to keep 70% of subscription revenue (minus “applicable taxes and fees”). So when the mobile platforms collect their 30% fee on first-year subscriptions, Facebook won’t take a cut. Then, as the platforms lower their share to 15% in the second year, Facebook will take the other 15%.” – Anthony Ha, writing for TechCrunch
