As of now, there’s no income being exchanged, as the schools do not compensate to be featured on a screens. But sponsored filters are a viable promotion option.

“When Facebook approached us to emanate tradition form print frames for a fans, we were anxious to be a initial in a nation to try it.

So far, tens of thousands of Facebook users combined a Florida Gators filter and a propagandize reported millions of impressions, or views.

Within 72 hours, some-more than 26 million people updated their form cinema with a tool. That filter’s page is still live
