Mark Zuckerberg confirms Facebook and Instagram users are going to pay for Verification

Mark Zuckerberg

Meta has come out to clear the space on speculations of copying the Elon Musk new business model of twitter users paying subscription to get a verified badge on their social profile. Meta says they are running the initial phases where Facebook and Instagram users will now pay subscription fees to get a verified checkmark on their profiles. Meta had earlier on during their early years that they would never charge any fees for users to use their platform but this has been brought to a change after the company experiencing huge costs in implementing their metaverse programmed.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on his Facebook page;

“To help up-and-coming creators grow their presence and build community faster, we’ll begin testing a new offering called Meta Verified, a subscription bundle on Instagram and Facebook that includes a verified badge, which authenticates your account with government ID, proactive account protection, access to account support, and increased visibility and reach. We’re starting with a gradual test in Australia and New Zealand later this week to learn what’s most valuable, and we hope to bring Meta Verified to the rest of the world soon.”

Meta confirms that two of its most requested features are better access to verification and account support, while creators are always looking for more ways to increase their visibility. The new move will cater to all of these, and will initially be priced at $11.99 per month on the web, or $14.99 p/m on iOS and Android, with the latter covering the respective App Store fees.
