This deal is initially for two years. Facebook will begin by initially paying out a lump sum to AWAL, which will be distributed to you in your statements in a similar manner to Black Box income. Black Box income is occasionally paid out by the digital music services for streams and sales that can’t be allocated. It appears as a lump sum on your statement, and is allocated proportionally between our Clients.
Facebook is developing more sophisticated analytics, and over the course of the deal we’re hoping to be able to provide you with exact figures based on the usage of your music as we can with the other digital music services. However, these analytics are at least 18 months away, and we’ll let you know when the reporting is available to us. We will not be able to provide you with any specific usage data until Facebook have developed and rolled out the analytics tools.
