Facebook, Instagram test paid subscription services in Australia and New Zealand
- Tram Ho
Meta said that the trial will last a week to assess users’ willingness to pay for activities on the company’s services, which have been provided for free so far.
Previously, according to an announcement from Meta, to overcome the drop in ad revenue, CEO Mark Zuckerberg planned to launch a paid monthly subscription service called Meta Verified. This service will charge “green ticks” on the social network Facebook and the photo-sharing application Instagram.
Reportedly, the Meta Verified service allows users to authenticate their accounts with identification documents such as citizen identification, driver’s license or passport. When signing up for the Meta Verified service, users will receive a blue circle icon, inside with a white check mark, right next to their Facebook account name. Here’s how social media users can protect their personal accounts from online impersonation.
The fee to use Meta Verified is 11.99 USD/month when registering on the website. If subscribed through iOS or Android operating systems, users pay 14.99 USD per month. Purchases on operating systems cost more because developers have to pay extra for in-app purchases.
According to Meta, the paid service will provide users with more protection mechanisms against account spoofing, the best support services during use, as well as higher visibility than Facebook or Instagram platforms. .
Experts say that people working in the field of content creators, influential figures and people who make money based on online activities will be potential customers of this fee-based service.
