Instagram and Facebook are emulating Twitter, and certification will cost money.


 Meta has just launched a brand new verification program, which is modeled after that of its competitor Twitter. You will have to go to the checkout if you want a small blue badge on your account.

Following the service's launch in Australia and New Zealand last month, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the availability of Meta Verified in the United States on his Instagram broadcast channel. A verified badge is available to anyone who register, he said.

In the past, only individuals deemed prominent in spheres like the media and government could have their social media profiles verified, ensuring that other users were actually following the real account owners.


After users verify their accounts with a government ID, the Meta Verified service will issue them with a blue badge. According to a statement from Meta, the subscription service would run $11.99 per month online or $14.99 per month on Apple's iOS and Google's Android operating systems. As a result of the 30% taxes imposed by Google and Apple on their individual stores, Twitter costs $8 on the Web and $11 on Android and iOS.

As on Twitter, Meta Verified users are eligible to specific perks on the company's social networks. In addition to the badge, the service provides "proactive identity theft protection," easy access to customer care, exclusive stickers, and 100 Facebook stars every month to assist other authors.

You can sign up for the Meta Verified waiting list at if you reside in the United States. You must be at least 18 years old, submit a photo of your ID to Meta, meet Meta's minimum activity requirements, and enable two-factor authentication in addition to paying the price.

Once you've been validated, you cannot modify your username, profile name, date of birth, or photo without going through the verification process once more.
