Meta Verified: This is what you get in return after shelling out money
New Delhi, (IANS) As Meta introduced a new paid verification subscription service on Facebook and Instagram, copying Twitter CEO Elon Musk who already charges users for Blue badges, here is what you will get if you subscribe to “Meta Verified.”
With Meta Verified, you’ll receive a verified badge verifying that you’re the real you and that your account has been authenticated with a government ID.
The social network claims that proactive account monitoring will provide more security against impersonation by looking out for impersonators who might target users of the rising online audience.
Also, having access to a live person for typical account concerns would be helpful when you need it.
With prominence in some areas of the site, such as search, comments, and recommendations, Meta Verified will enable enhanced visibility and reach.
Accounts need to have a minimal amount of activity, such as a history of postings, and be at least 18 years old to be eligible.
Then, according to Meta, “applicants must produce a government ID that corresponds with the profile name and photo of the Facebook or Instagram account they are applying for.”
Proactive account impersonation monitoring is part of subscriptions.
According to the company, businesses are not yet eligible to apply for Meta Verified.
Only your true name will be supported on your profile at this time for Meta Verified.
According to the business, when your profile has been verified, you cannot change it without reapplying for Meta Verified membership and verifications. You also cannot change your username, date of birth, or profile name.
Starting later this week, “Meta Verified” will be directly available for purchase on Instagram or Facebook in Australia and New Zealand.
On the web and on iOS and Android, a monthly subscription costs $11.99 and $14.99, respectively.
