Free content platforms aren't built for creators, they're built for advertisers. Platforms will always cater towards the customer who pays, which leads to platforms that don't have the viewer or the creators in mind. Youtube demonetizes videos, Spotify pays the music labels, and Instagram/Reddit give the creators nothing while monetizing the content via ads.
