I think the insensitivity Facebook has towards smaller content creators will be short lived. The fact is most of these stolen vids are uploaded by a small amount of Newsfeed junk pages that degrade the quality of experience on the platform and Facebook has to know this. Right now they are courting the big content producers because that makes sense in the short term. Long term success means attracting smaller creators to the Facebook platform. I think this entire native content push is because Facebook knows it does not have great content producers and they’re trying to change that. The ironic this is they’re alienating the very people they want to eventually attract.
That said, it sucks that Facebook is using smaller creators to prop up their video counts.
