Meta, unveiled its subscription plan called Meta Verified earlier this week. As of Friday, March 3rd, Sydney time, the company has started to roll out this feature to users in Australia and New Zealand.
This development is an excellent opportunity for content creators, who can monetise their content and connect directly with their audience. But what does this mean for those living in Oz and NZ?
The subscription package includes various benefits such as a verified badge, enhanced visibility, increased protection from impersonation, access to customer support, and unique stickers for Facebook and Instagram.
This new feature also presents an excellent opportunity for those content creators in Australia and New Zealand to monetise their content and build a community of dedicated fans. Time to fill those grandstands!
By offering exclusive content and perks to subscribers, creators can increase their revenue and develop a loyal following.
It can be especially beneficial for creators who have struggled to monetise their content in the past, as the subscription model provides a reliable source of income.
For users in Australia and New Zealand, the subscription feature offers the chance to support their favourite creators and access exclusive content. This likely will include early access to new content, behind-the-scenes footage, and personalised messages from creators.
To learn about the advantages of the subscription and how to join, users can visit the Meta website. However, since the company is gradually introducing the plan, some users may not immediately see the option to sign up for it.
Meta Verified is available for personal and professional accounts at a monthly cost of $11.99 on the web and $14.99 on iOS or Android.
Subscribers also can interact more closely with creators, with some subscription tiers offering direct messaging or video chat with the creator.
Just be aware that you must first be eligible to apply for this feature, then apply and be approved. Here’s the link if you want to know how to get verified eligibility criteria here.
The subscription feature is an exciting development for content creators and users alike. It provides a new way for creators to monetise their content while allowing users to support their favourite creators and access exclusive content. While the feature is still unknown, it has the potential to impact the social media landscape significantly, and it will be interesting to see how it develops in the coming months and years!
I am confident that eventually, social media platforms will all have subscription features, and it will be very much like when paid TV first came out… these days if you’re like me, you watch more subscription-based services than free-to-air.
