    I see some Facebook pages with a million likes, and all they post for example are funny pictures or videos but don't actually link to anything. With them doing say 20 posts a day I can't really see this being a hobby for them, so how do they actually make money from this?

    Maybe they have a website inserted in the "About" section. Or something like that.

    A few I looked at may link to throe instagram or twitter, but even if you follow them it is pretty much just duplicate content. Am I allowed to post links to show an example?

    Maybe they don't earn money from that page. Not everyone is in it for the money. Some people might do it because they're interested or passionate about it.

    I hope this is within the rules, but here is a link to one particular example page. It also links to their other Facebook pages that has similar content which each one in turn links to their instagram. It is probably all fed from one particular method, but why have ten different Facebook pages, which then link to the Instagrams just because they enjoy it. It has to be monitized some how as I am sure this would take up too much time just as a hobby.

    Just seen that I am not allowed to post links yet, but if you do a Facebook search for 'beingchicano' you should find the page with half a million likes.

    Seems to have 500,000 likes and 4 years old, If it was going to be monetized am sure it would have been by now, I just cannot see how.

    I'm only asking to make sure there isn't anything that I am a not aware of.

    If you are visiting their page then you wont see the links, most of the page owners including me hide the links they post. This way your profile looks really clean and people like it.

    But they must be posting links and hiding it, maybe you cant see them on your homepage.

    Thats what i think atleast.

    Some people post links and hide from timeline, which means its not visible on the page itself when visiting the timeline, but still delivers to users in their news feeds.

    Some do it to build themselves a recognizable social profile or establish a brand, which they can earn from later via endorsements.

    Others just do it for fun and have no idea about monetizing (very common)
