Snippet: Facebook Wants In On Paid Verification ☇

Shared on February 20, 2023

Juli Clover for MacRumors:

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg over the weekend announced the upcoming launch of a new “Meta Verified” subscription service that’s designed for Facebook users, which will provide verification for $11.99 per month on the web or $14.99 per month on the iPhone or the iPad.

Zuckerberg described Meta Verified as a subscription that lets individuals verify an account with a government ID, get a blue badge, and get “extra impersonation protection” against accounts that are “claiming to be you.” It also comes with “direct access to customer support, exclusive stickers, and a news release describing the feature says that it will include “access to increased visibility and reach…”

I think they’ve run out of ideas.
