Facebook has provided creators with additional controls over the images they own and how they can use them across the social media platform.

The Facebook Rights Manager for Images extends on the Creator Studio features.

These enable creators and publishers to control how their content is being distributed on Instagram and Facebook.

The updated version of the Rights Manager integrates image matching so that creators can protect and manage their image content.

“We want to ensure Facebook is a safe and valuable place for creators to share their content,” said Dave Axelgard, Product Manager for Creator and Publisher Experience at Facebook.

“That’s why we built tools like Rights Manager in Creator Studio to help creators and publishers who have a large or growing catalog of content better control when, how and where their content is shared across Facebook and Instagram. Today, we are introducing Rights Manager for Images.”

Page admins must submit an application for their images to be protected via the Rights Manager. The tool then matches relevant content.
