Meta is about to launch Meta Verified, a new monthly paid subscription service. The service aims to assist creators and public figures in building their online presence by providing them with a verified badge indicating that their account has been verified by Meta. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement on his Facebook page, and Meta later confirmed it in an official blog post.
According to Meta, the service is currently in testing and will be made available to a select group of creators and public figures in the coming months. It will be launched this week in Australia and New Zealand, with other countries to follow shortly. The company has not yet disclosed the service’s pricing, but it is expected to be a monthly subscription.
The platform’s verification service is designed to help creators and public figures gain more visibility and credibility. Meta stated in a blog post that it wants to help users “build a trusted presence” on its platforms. The subscription is priced at $11.99 per month and is designed to help creators and public figures build a trusted presence on the platform.
The subscription offers a verified badge for the user’s account, indicating that their account has been verified by Meta. In addition to the verified badge, subscribers will have access to a range of features and tools, including personalized support, analytics, and more.
Meta Verified is a response to the growing demand for better tools to help creators and public figures manage their online presence. It is part of Meta’s ongoing efforts to improve user experience on its platforms and attract more creators and public figures. The company is facing increased competition from other social media platforms, such as Twitter and TikTok, and is looking to offer more features and tools in order to stay competitive.
