Meta Platforms has launched its subscription service in the U.S., asking Facebook and Instagram users to pay for verification.
Facebook and Instagram verificationThe price of Facebook and Instagram verification service will be $11.99 per month on the web or $14.99 a month on Apple’s iOS system and Google-owned Android.

The Meta Verified service will give users a blue badge after they verify their accounts using a government ID.

The service follows in the footsteps of Snap-owned Snapchat as well as messaging app Telegram and marks the latest effort by a social media platform to diversify its revenue away from advertising.

Elon Musk-owned Twitter had rolled out its Blue subscription service which lets people pay for the blue check mark previously limited to verified accounts of politicians, journalists and other public figures.

The initial launch of Twitter Blue in November had led to a surge in users impersonating celebrities and brands on the platform, which prompted the social media company to halt the service and reintroduce it with different colored checks for individuals, companies and governments.
