How Much Are 100 Stars Worth On Facebook?
December 26th, 2023 by Terri Pinyerd

Facebook Stars are virtual gifts that allow members of the Level Up program to generate revenue from video and audio content when they broadcast gaming content on Facebook live.


Viewers can buy Stars and send Stars to their favorite creators while a creator is live, or for past live stream gaming content.


How Much Are Facebook Stars Worth?


Facebook pays creators $0.01 USD for every Star they receive. That means if your total Star count is 100 you'll earn $1.00 USD, and for 1000 total stars you'll earn $10.00 USD.


These amounts are calculated after Facebook takes their revenue share after users purchase Stars.

Frequently Asked Questions


Why don't I have the option to receive Facebook Stars?

If you're not seeing Facebook Stars within your Creator Studio, you're either located in a country that does not allow this feature or you have violated Facebook's Community Standards or Partner Monetization Policies.
