The social media giant is exploring new ways for users to monetize their content

Facebook could soon be rolling out a feature that will allow users to receive payments on their personal pages. Being dubbed as a virtual tip jar this product was first noticed by The Verge, who received a Facebook user survey asking a series of questions relating to earning money on the site.

In addition to a tip jar, other options suggested earning money from posting branded content and one-click payment options to purchase tickets or donate to a charity.

Options for users to monetize their posts could spark more curated and shared content. In addition, it would provide another alternative to receive money for products and services.
