Meta's Not So Super Trial 🙅♂️
Meta drops its new live-streaming platform.
Hi there! Short form video isn't the only thing that's here to stay! Also, we're talking about a more serious topic - creators who are struggling emotionally.
Let's dive right in! 👇
Meta's Not So Super Trial 🙅♂️
In 2020, Meta (still Facebook to me) rolled out Super as a meet-and-greet platform, similar to Cameo. Fans could pay a fee for face time with their favorite influencers. However, later iterations of the platform more closely resembled platforms like Twitch, with the addition of live-streaming and monetization features like subscriptions and tip jars. When Meta made these changes, they offered $3,000 to content creators who were willing to join their platform.
Now Super is going bye-bye
Super released a letter to users, stating that it will be shutting down on February 15, 2023, and creators will no longer be able to schedule new events during this time. The reason for the shutdown has not been disclosed, but we can assume that it wasn't getting the traction Meta expected it would.
What does this mean for creators?
We've seen Meta and other platforms, like YouTube, copying TikTok, but haven't seen any successfully steal the live-streaming crown from Twitch. The fact that Meta put resources into this attempt means that others will likely follow suit. And this simply means that live-streaming is here to stay.
So, streamers - keep doing what you're doing. People that don't stream - get on it!
A Friendly Reminder For All Creators Who Are Struggling 🙌
The pressure is real, and it creeps in without you even realizing it.
One day, you're completely fine and then the next you don't even recognize yourself.
If you've been struggling, don't walk it alone. Find some help.

Our thoughts. When you are struggling emotionally as a creator, here are some ways you can feel a bit better without relying anything that's emotionally numbing... 👇
Take breaks. It's important to remember that it's okay to take breaks from creating content, especially if you're feeling burnt out or overwhelmed. Taking breaks can help you recharge and come back to your work with renewed energy and creativity.
Seek support. Surround yourself with a supportive network of friends, family, and colleagues who can offer emotional support and encouragement. You could also consider seeking support from a mental health professional, such as a therapist.
Focus on progress, not perfection. Remember that it's okay to make mistakes and that perfection is not the goal. Instead, focus on making progress and celebrating your accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem.
Find inspiration. Look for inspiration in the work of other creators or in the world around you. This can help spark new ideas and keep you motivated to continue creating.
