Many social media users are familiar with the concept of Ads of the social media giant. Meta - the parent company that owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, rolled out video monetization in recent years but it was available to a limited number of Facebook partners.
Earlier, digital media organizations and creators paid international companies to apply for monetization from those regions.
