META releases numbers for the newsletter platform
META releases numbers for the newsletter platform

Six months after launching the newsletter publishing platform, Meta has released a new blog post explaining what has been happening on the platform over the past few months.

Through posts, the company tells us how many publishers are using the platform to compete with companies like Substack.

When we launched Bulletin in June, we started with a small group to see how we could best support their work. Six months later, we have over 115 ad messages.

"This is the beginning of our global effort to connect people in more relevant ways with content from a wide range of sources and experts," she added.

It differs from Substack, the most active newsletter platform. You cannot start writing with the handout.

Meta keeps adding book in bulk to the platform instead of going through the general signup process. Although this figure shows that the company has not strongly encouraged people to enter the platform as quickly as possible. But it appears to be intentional, at least to some extent.

META can obtain these numbers by asking anyone to sign up. However, the company pledges to consciously increase the number of content creators in the next year.

Substack announced in November that its authors had reached 1 million paying subscribers. Meta makes numbers available to free subscribers only.

More than half of the newsletter's content creators have more than 1,000 subscribers to the free newsletter, the company said. Many of them have more than 5,000 or 10,000.

That should breathe a sigh of relief for the Substack co-founder: When rival Twitter took over Revue and rumors were swirling about Facebook entering the newsletter business, he wrote a blog to welcome the competition.

Although it may be too early to judge the success or failure of the prospectus. But Meta doesn't seem to be as successful as some of the other releases.

His version of Snapchat Stories has become a huge part of Instagram. Meta is just one of the companies trying to prove that Clubhouse's social voice trumps the full platform.

However, it can be difficult for the author to trust the platform supported by Meta. This is because his previous efforts to work with editors and journalists were unsuccessful.
