Add a link or image with tracking properties to collect at least CTR (Click-Through-Rate). Make every n-th post in a user stream from META such an ad as part of the „deal“. De-federation would be difficult. Not limited to META. Could also be an opportunity for Automattica/Wordpress.

I don’t think they will do it right from the start, I just raise the possibility to hopefully find a way to limit possible impact before the problem occurs.

Mostly my strategic gut feeling speaking, I happily admit.
