The Facebook content guidelines for Monetization are quite straightforward & Let me be with you as well.

Here Facebook is Focusing on Quality and Authenticity with regular content.

90 Days Established Presence on Facebook:

As per the Facebook Content Guidelines For Monetization, Your Facebook Page Should be 90 Days Old.

You Should have “Established Presence” on Facebook. Your Facebook Page should be Authentic.

That means you should be an active contributor to your page with decent content and followers.

Its not written anywhere but believe me if your page is less then 90 days old, You will get the similar results.


10,000 Followers on Your Facebook Page:

You should have 10,000 Followers on your Facebook page.

Don’t get confused with “Page Likes” and  “Profile Friends”, You need proper “Followers”.

You can Check on your page by clicking on community option.

Here is the Screenshot for your reference.


How to Check Your Facebook Page Followers

Video Length : Watch time

You will need 30,000 views of minimum 1 minute in Past 60 Days on Videos which are at least 3 Minutes long.

Views on videos Which are less then 3 minutes long are not considerable for Monetization.

It makes 500 Hours of watch time. Clearly, Audience retention is focused here.

Videos Uploaded on Facebook Page NOT Facebook Profile:

Again, Understand the difference. You will need to upload Videos on your Facebook Page.

Video Views on your Profile Videos are not considerable.

Use Creator Studio to upload videos on your Facebook Page. You can also use Facebook Creator App for Publishing Videos.

How Practical are the Facebook Monetization Standards:

Well, There are only two major Goals you need to work on. The first is Facebook Page Followers and Second is  Watch time on your videos.

60 Second View on 180 Seconds Long Video: 100 Minutes x 30 Videos x 10 Days = 30,000 Minutes.

It seems very Achievable For Video Watch time. You can achieve in 10 Days if you have good Video Content.

10,000 Followers: Let me be Straightforward. They will grow gradually, You can’t do any thing in that.

Keep in Mind. People likes your content that’s why they follow you.

As a Creator, becoming eligible for Ad Breaks your strategy should be gaining more followers by creating engaging content.

Initially, If you have just started then upload some Images, Info graphics, Charts and Process Flows. This way you will reach more and more Facebook users.
