I received e-mail from iStock this afternoon with a description of their partnership with Facebook's new app, Notify. The e-mail content is here:

http://press.gettyimages.com/getty-images-partners-with-facebook-at-launch-of-notify-to-bring-users-expert-visual-curation-of-the-worlds-biggest-moments-as-they-happen/

Surprisingly, given that they sent this to iStock contributors, there is no mention of what you would make if your image were one of those included with a notification. Perhaps they think it'll all be editorial and thus nothing to do with iStock?

Here are some articles about the new stuff:

http://venturebeat.com/2015/11/11/publishers-better-off-partnering-with-facebook-to-invade-phone-lock-screens/

And some Facebook blurb about their latest attempt to be more relevent

http://newsroom.fb.com/news/2015/11/introducing-notify-a-notifications-app-from-facebook/

I use an iPhone and Facebook, but I get news alerts (generally banned from the lock screen or I'd never get any work done) from real news sources like my New York Times app and a local TV station's app. I don't have any enthusiasm for this as a product, but if lots of people do, then asking about how those images generate compensation for the people who shoot them would be key.

Remember the embedding of images in non-commercial blogs at no charge? And the fractions of a cent for the metadata usage in partnership with (I think) Yahoo & others? I guess this is in the same general area of trying to stay relevant without actually charging any money.

I haven't had this email (yet?), so thanks for sharing.
Yup, the small matter of artist compensation is just so easy to forget.

I am no doubt a geezer when it comes to this stuff so I have to ask, who in their right mind signs up to be pestered with irrelevant drivel? Now an app that automatically keeps me from receiving all that crap would be much more useful.

Agree. I already love AdBlock, and can usually - but not always - avoid all the celebrity clickbait. If I want news, I go to the Beeb, which I happily pay for.
Looks like this notify thing might be an opt-in app, hopefully.

I have a folder on my iPhone labeled WORMS, that's where I keep the things that clog up my device that I can't get rid of. Slimy little creatures that do nothing but displace useful space.

Got the email don't know what it means to me. Why do I care that Getty partners with Notify? Do I make more money somehow?
