Huge social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook have dominated the market. Although famous users like celebrities and artists were first given verifications like “blue check marks,” anybody may now purchase a verification.
Twitter, which introduced both the blue subscription and the gold verification for companies, started this trend. Other social media networks are now starting to follow this pattern. Some social media networks now rely on this as an extra revenue stream. The most recent statement on the official Meta channel is that Instagram will start charging $11.99 per month for verification.
On the official Meta channel, co-founder of Facebook and Meta Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of the new product. According to the information, “Meta Verified,” a new membership service, will debut this week.
In addition to receiving additional features like impersonation protection from false accounts and direct access to customer care, users will be able to receive a blue badge using their government ID.
Meta Verified has a monthly membership price of $11.99 for online users and $14.99 for iOS users. This week’s first launch will only be available in Australia and New Zealand. The release states that additional nations will soon be able to use this service.
