New way for content creators to make money from their following



People have been buying, or selling new and used items on Facebook marketplace for the past few years, and now Instagram is joining the party with its own version.

Facebook has announced that its social media platform Instagram will soon have its own marketplace.

It’s a new way for Instagram influencers to make money from their content.

In a video on the social media platform, Instagram’s boss says “branded content is the economic engine behind the creator ecosystem.”

The moves are all part of a swing of new measures designed to generate revenue for users of the popular social media platform.

Ticker’s social media expert Dr Karen Sutherland From the University of the Sunshine Coast, says creators will be the winners of this new feature.

For many years Instagram avoided brand partnerships for fears of over-commercialisation.

So, many deals have been done between brands and content creators – off the record

Often people with a high following get contacted by brands via email or direct message.

They get asked to promote products and receive the product for free or get paid in a sponsored arrangement.

Therefore, introducing creator shops could be a game-changer for the way influencers make money from their following.

Kylie Jenner is one of most followed instagram users with over 221 million followers. BBC reported Kylie Jenner is paid around $1.2 million for a single post on Instagram,

The new feature is still in the works, with finer details on how the marketplace will function yet to come.

But it seems instagram wants a slice of the influencer pie, whilst trying to help millions of instagrammers make their own money on the platform too.

Democrats scramble to rally behind Harris as Trump allies launch next phase of campaign



Biden Withdraws: President Joe Biden Ends Reelection Bid, Endorses Kamala Harris.


After weeks of battling to salvage his political career – claiming he wouldn’t be stepping down after a disastrous debate performance – the president’s sudden change of course was not announced through an Oval Office address or a campaign speech. Instead, it was revealed in a letter posted to social media while he was recovering from Covid-19 at his beach house in Delaware.

“And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in a letter posted to X.

Harris expressed her gratitude for Biden’s endorsement, stating she is “honoured” and committed to “earning and winning” the nomination. Should she secure the nomination, Harris would make history as the first Black woman and first Asian American to lead the ticket of a major political party. To facilitate her candidacy, the Biden-Harris campaign has updated its filings with the Federal Election Commission, renaming its principal committee to reflect Harris’s new status as a presidential candidate.

Despite Biden’s support, the path forward remains uncertain. It is unclear whether Harris will automatically become the nominee or what alternative processes the Democratic Party might consider. Additionally, sources suggest that Senator Joe Manchin, an independent from West Virginia, is contemplating re-registering as a Democrat to enter the presidential race.

In response to Biden’s withdrawal, former President Donald Trump criticised Biden as “the worst president by far in the history of our country” during a call with CNN. Trump has also launched a fundraising appeal to rally his supporters.

Donald Trump has said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to beat than Joe Biden.

With Biden out, Trump’s campaign will now adjust its strategy, focusing on attacking Harris and any other possible Democratic candidates. They aim to convince voters that Harris would be just as ineffective as Biden.

Biden faced growing doubts about his ability to win re-election, especially after a weak debate performance against Trump. Some Democrats also lost confidence in his leadership, leading him to step down.

Donald Trump said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to defeat than Biden. Trump and his team quickly began attacking both Biden and Harris online, claiming that Biden was not fit to be president and that Harris would be just as bad.

Allies of former President Donald Trump quickly launched their campaign against Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday afternoon, preparing a series of anti-Harris ads and planning their strategies for attacking her.

“I call her laughing Kamala,” Trump told the crowd, during his nearly two-hour appearance. “You can tell a lot by a laugh. She’s crazy. She’s nuts.”
