Its old news IF it is from the FB deal

I think the general consensus is that it is a good deal for all parties.

Well, I never heard back from shutterstock,  but I'm pretty sure it's what Ron said.....Facebook.  The SOD is equivalent to your subscription level.

So "high quality imagery for businesses" turns out to mean 36 cents.  And no opting out.  Sweet indeed.

They only get thumbnail size.

How do they define "thumbnail"?  I'll bet these are actually around 400px. Have they stated the size?

You can ask the question here,
http://submit.shutterstock.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=133451 or try it out on Facebook yourself. I dont have the exact answer. There was a thread from SS as well on this. See if I can find it.

This certainly isn't an 'exact answer'.
"Images used in ads will be limited to digital sizes often appearing as thumbnails."

Is there a 'standard' on the definition of 'digital sizes'? All files are 'digital size'.
But then SS doesn't price by size anyway.

If you want an exact answer, submit@shutterstock.com. I dug up 7 links, I dont have the answer. If someone feels they are being sold out, contact Shutterstock directly.

Good business move as far as I'm concerned. Creating another revenue stream is better than flogging off stuff wholesale for a one-off compensation or giving non-sellers away for free. And if it picks up I can stop uploading to some of the walking dead in the middle tier

had one today and just checked it at FB ads, 1000 x 727, looks like Med size

So basically it's non-subscription sales at subscription prices. 

We enter a whole new market, already at the bottom.

The license is very limited, the buyer can only use the image on Facebook.. it is a bit different.  It seems like a good/fair deal to me.  Here is more info from Shutterstock http://www.shutterstock.com/buzz/shutterstock-facebook
