Facebook owner Meta to roll out paid subscription

FACEBOOK and Instagram owner Meta will launch a paid subscription service starting at US$11.99 (RM53.14) a month allowing users to verify their accounts, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced yesterday, following a similar move by Elon Musk at Twitter.

Meta Verified, which will roll out first in Australia and New Zealand this week, will let users “verify your account with a government ID, get a blue badge, get extra impersonation protection against accounts claiming to be you, and get direct access to customer support,” Zuckerberg said.
