I suspect that the lid blows off on this story from today:

For those of you who are aligned with getting something more than $0.10 for your images and $1 for your videos, please post news as you see it coming through on this.

Not really surprised. Social media and news companies stifle anything that doesn't align with their agenda.

The more interesting thing for me was this. Do contributors earn anything for these?

According to the Shutterstock website: With the Shutterstock integration, marketers will have access to millions of images from the Shutterstock library at no additional cost. Shutterstocks images are commercially licensed and available for use in all Facebook ad formats. Thanks to Shutterstocks API and search capabilities, these images will be fully searchable and accessible directly within Facebooks ad creation tool.

ETA: Looks like there's already a ealier post on this https://www.microstockgroup.com/general-stock-discussion/facebook-gags-industry-article-on-shutterstock-shutdown

big tech favours got in the way of freedom of speech.

This is the big chance to get heard if it could get in the bigger news channels.
Also this could be a cause for a investigation and further attention.
