It is not yet clear how much money will be taken from the users for the paid version. Apart from this, both Instagram and Facebook can be used under the same paid service or different plans will have to be taken for both.
If you happen to be a user of both Facebook and Instagram, there’s significant news on the horizon. Meta, the parent company of these two major social media platforms, has made the decision to introduce paid subscription options for Facebook and Instagram. This means that users may need to invest money to access certain premium features or services on these platforms in the future.
According to the report, Meta has taken this decision for Europe at present. It is claimed in the report that Meta has taken this decision amid constant pressure from the European Union regarding advertising and privacy. The company can also launch paid versions of Facebook and Instagram in India, although clear information about this is not available yet.
It is being said that for the users of European Union countries, Facebook and Instagram will have two services, one of which will be paid and the other will be free. Users who take paid services of Facebook and Instagram will not be shown advertisements on Facebook and Instagram. The free version will work as before with no ads. Meta has not yet issued any official statement on its decision.
It is not yet clear how much money will be taken from the users for the paid version. Apart from this, both Instagram and Facebook can be used under the same paid service or different plans will have to be taken for both. Meta has been facing an investigation by the European Union since 2019. The company has long been accused of collecting users’ data without their permission.
Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, introduced cross-app messaging between Instagram and Messenger in September 2020. The primary objective was to enhance user convenience by enabling them to respond to messages and communicate with friends seamlessly, eliminating the need to switch between the two separate apps.
With this integration, users on Instagram could reply to messages from friends on Messenger without having to leave the Instagram app. Similarly, responding to Instagram Direct Messages (DMs) was simplified while using the Facebook app. This cross-app messaging feature aimed to provide a more streamlined and uninterrupted communication experience across Meta’s social media platforms, promoting connectivity and user engagement.
