Facebook discharged a blog entry with rules on what distributors and what substance can win cash from sharing to or posting on the website. Profiting from Facebook incorporates content supported by a brand, destinations including promotions from Facebook Audience Network, advertisements in Facebook Instant Articles, or promotion softens up Facebook recordings.

The principles are quite evident around nine classifications prohibited from profiting by means of Facebook:

Misappropriation of Children’s Characters

Catastrophe and Conflict (ex. cataclysmic events, wrongdoing, self-hurt)

Bantered about Social Issues (ex. assaults on individuals or gatherings)

Brutal Content (against individuals or creatures)

Grown-up Content (ex. nakedness, express or suggestive positions)

Disallowed Activity (ex. deal or utilization of illicit items)

Express Content (ex. blood, therapeutic systems, gut)

Medications or Alcohol Use

Improper Language

Facebook likewise presented new item apparatuses that will illuminate distributors when their substance is incapacitated from promoting. These distributors would then be able to request inside another framework straightforwardly on the site. Sometime recently, Facebook did not have that straightforwardness and capacity for distributors to make a move quickly.

While the rules don’t cover each situation, they are a decent marker of what sorts of substance are probably going to create more income. Remember that regardless of the possibility that your substance is qualified for promotions, a few brands and sponsors may utilize mark security controls to tailor where their advertisements run.

Makers and distributors must have a bona fide, built up nearness on Facebook — they are who they speak to themselves to be, and have had a profile or Page on Facebook for no less than one month. Furthermore, some of our highlights like Ad Breaks require an adequate supporter base, something that could reach out to different highlights after some time.

The substance rules aren’t fresh out of the plastic new to Facebook, however, the lucidity and new apparatuses help Facebook in its journey to build the measure of fantastic recordings on the site. Facebook is putting resources into distributors making elite arrangement for its Watch program, instead of simply advancing short-frame, thumb-halting recordings on News Feed.

The news likewise comes as Facebook puts resources into the Live video, the main program in which it paid accomplices for content. Facebook discharged programming refreshes Wednesday that will enhance the speed and preparing of live video and uncovered an association with Wowza for another gadget solely made for Facebook Live.

“At Facebook, we consider important our obligation to gain and keep up the trust of our publicist accomplices—and give them the certainty they have to put resources into us. That is basic to their prosperity and our own,” Carolyn Everson, Facebook’s VP of worldwide showcasing arrangements, wrote in a blog entry Wednesday.

Obviously, Facebook didn’t experience the ill effects of those erroneous conclusions in detail. The organization still acquired $9.3 billion in income throughout the second quarter of 2017. Facebook revealed $27.64 billion in income for all more than 2016.

However, as Facebook keeps on going for the $70 billion secured TV publicizing and contends with Google in the computerized promotion duopoly, the organization has plainly found a way to guarantee it’s getting dollars from confided in brands and not Russian disseminators, for instance.

Distributors dependably needed to agree to Facebook’s Community Standards and different terms of administration. This refresh makes it unequivocally clear what is and isn’t permitted. A ProPublica report from June featured how confounding and rather cringeworthy Facebook’s loathe discourse rules were.

As a component of this refresh, Facebook has taken another crackdown to the counterfeit news too. Facebook Pages that more than once share stories that are recognized as false by outsider

Panama papers leak

The Pandora’s Box has opened and what comes is not something to cheer about. Yes! We are talking about the latest Panama papers leak, the most sensational leak of documents that have stunned the world. The Panama papers leak shows the way the powerful and the rich people of the world hide their wealth.


What are the Panama Papers?

Before moving on to the details of the Panama papers leak, it is essential to understand that what these papers are. The Panama papers are documents that were in possession of the law firm Mossack Fonseca, which is based in Panama. The firm offers legal advice, services and research for various jurisdictions that include Panama, Cyprus, Belize, Seychelles, British Virgin Islands, Costa Rica and several others that are mainly considered as tax havens.

The leak of which there has been so much hype since the past two days amount to a staggering 11.5 million confidential documents that have legal as well as financial information.  The papers date back nearly four decades when the firm Mossack Fonseca was established. It contains the financial information about personalities from all over the world that have laundered their money somehow and evaded tax in their countries.


Who are involved?

Now the important question as to who all have been named in these Panama papers leak arises. It seems that over the period of forty years, some very well known names from the political, sports, entertainment and other arenas have formed shell companies through Mossack Fonseca and laundered money. The Panama paper leak has shown links to a dozen heads of state and government. The names also include some 60 associates and relatives of the heads of state, politicians, sports personalities and some from the film fraternity.

The names include associates of Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President, brother-in-law of Xi Jinping, President of China, Mauricio Macri, President of Argentina, David Cameron’s late father, Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine, three of the four children of Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan’s Prime Minister and Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson, Iceland’s Prime Minister to name a few.

What is wrong in these cases?

Since tax havens have existed from a long time, why there is such a hullabaloo over the Panama papers is the question that is being raised by money. It is true that tax havens have always existed and that there are legitimate ways of keeping money in these tax havens. However, the problem here is that the firm hid information about the owners of the money, the source of origin of this money and that the owners avoided paying taxes on this money in their countries.

The shell companies through which the money has been laundered are the real culprits. There is no real business going on in these companies except for the money changing hands and this is what is wrong here.

Who leaked the Panama Papers?

The German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung was first approached by an unknown source regarding the handing over of these documents. The newspaper shared the information and the papers with International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). The duo along with several journalists from around the world analyzed the documents over a year and then made them public.
