Facebook has taken an intellectual approach to intellectualizing over a billion people by letting them upload their artwork on its platform, with a few caveats.
In the process, the social network has gone from an industry leader in terms of the amount of art that has been uploaded to an industry follower, with artists now using the social networking platform to make their own works of art, rather than relying on its own online network to distribute the work.
The news comes as Facebook has launched its own studio in Singapore, to help develop its own creative content.
The move has drawn criticism from those who see it as a way to get around its rules around content sharing.
The site has been a mainstay of the entertainment industry for years, but its popularity has waned over time.
Facebook’s efforts to develop its digital studios come amid concerns over the site’s lack of community and a lack of accountability for content creators.
