Facebook parent Meta has unveiled an exciting new subscription service called Meta Verified, to allow individuals to verify their identity on both Instagram and Facebook, and receive the coveted blue badge in the process. The service is now rolling out in New Zealand and Australia, and it is priced at $11.99 per month on the web and $14.99 on Apple’s iOS.
The blue badge is an important feature, as it gives social media users a sense of trust and credibility. It also acts as an additional level of protection, making it more difficult to impersonate other users. With Meta Verified, users can verify their identity by submitting their government-issued ID, which Meta will verify.
In addition to the blue badge, Meta Verified also offers enhanced impersonation protection and direct access to customer support services. This ensures that any issues that arise, such as false impersonations, can be quickly addressed. The service also provides users with VIP access to exclusive events and opportunities, and users will be able to share their verified status with their social media followers.
Meta’s move to launch a subscription service is intriguing, and it will be interesting to see how successful the venture is. While its smaller rival, Twitter, has had mixed success with similar services, Meta’s larger user base could be an advantage. It will also be interesting to see if other social media networks follow in Meta’s footsteps and launch similar services. Regardless, Meta Verified is an exciting new development for social media users!
