Meta has recently announced a subscription-based verification service for Facebook and Instagram users. The service is designed to help individuals and businesses verify their identity on these two social media platforms and get the blue badge for a monthly subscription.
To get this service, you will have to spend a monthly fee of $11.99 on the web and $14.99 on iOS. This monthly subscription will give you verified profiles with blue badges on Facebook and Instagram. Meta intends to help users to establish their authenticity on these platforms and protect their identity from malicious activities.
With this service, you can verify your profile on Facebook and Instagram in a two-step process. First, you must provide documents that prove your identity, such as a photo ID card like a passport, driver’s license, proof of address, etc. Then Meta will verify the documents and authenticate your identity.
After successfully completing the verification, Meta will provide you with a verified blue badge on your Facebook and Instagram profiles. This badge will showcase the authenticity of your profile and make you trustworthy to your followers and customers.
This verification subscription service will hugely help businesses and content creators establish legitimacy. As a business or content creator, you can build trust with your customers and audiences and stand out. It will also help you become more visible to potential customers and followers.
If your business or content creator profile has a blue badge, it will be less likely to be affected by malicious activities like hacking or profile theft. So, profile verification will protect your Facebook and Instagram accounts as well.
The verification subscription service announcement has come as a shock for many people, and it is going to change how people use Facebook and Instagram. The important take from this announcement is that now you can purchase a blue badge for your Facebook and Instagram from Meta.
It is only available in Australia and New Zealand and is ready to roll out in several other countries. Whether it’s a good thing or bad, we will have to wait to see that.
