Meta has made its premium membership service for Facebook and Instagram available to customers in Australia and New Zealand. The membership package known as “Meta Verified” gives a verified label, enhanced reach, stronger protection from impersonation, access to customer support, and special stickers on Facebook and Instagram, writes TechCrunch.
Last week, the firm said that it is piloting premium verification for Instagram and Facebook at a monthly cost of $11.99 for the web and $14.99 for mobile.
Meanwhile, on the company’s website, visitors may examine the benefits of the membership as well as the method for joining. According to the article, because the corporation is rolling out the plan gradually, many consumers may not notice the opportunity to purchase it immediately once.
Instagram and Facebook have distinct plans, and only the online plan is presently accessible for Facebook. Users will have to pay $27 per month if they want to acquire Meta Verified for both platforms.
To be Meta Verified, users must be at least 18 years old, have a history of recent activity, such as posting, and have a profile photo that matches the government ID they supply. Meta subscribers are now unable to update their profile name, username, date of birth, or profile image without unsubscribing and reapplying.
