 Snapchat to pay $1 Million a Day to Creators for Viral videos

Snapchat announced that it will pay 1 million dollars per day to creators of  the top performing posts, until the end of this year at least. Snapchat is rolling out a new tool to feature the popular videos called spotlight.

By announcing the award, Snapchat is trying to compete with the competitive market of TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. The company said if the trial is successful, it will continue for next year too 2021.

- To be rewarded, video submitters to spotlight don't need to have large followers or even public profiles. The algorithm will determine what to show snapchat users based on their interest of viewing the post. If others see the same video repeatedly, that means signal is catching on and will spur the algorithm to distribute it more widely. Trending : China launches a missile to bring rocks from the Moon

Without those metrics, its harder for users to get popular, noticed by brands and hired to create sponsored content, the main way young social media stars make a living.
