Facebook and Instagram receive paid verification badges, as does Twitter

As Twitter continues its frankly weird campaign to attract subscribers to its Twitter Blue service, Mark Zuckerberg has announced that Meta is launching a similar subscription verification service for Facebook and Instagram, called Meta Verified.

“This week we’re launching Meta Verified—a subscription service that lets you verify your account with a government ID, get a blue badge, get extra impersonation protection against accounts that claim to be you, and get instant access in customer support,” Zuckerberg revealed (opens in new tab) yesterday. “This new feature is all about increasing authenticity and security in our services.”
