Like Twitter, Meta will make this a paid option
Whatever you may think about it, we can all agree that Elon Musk did not become one of the richest people in the world by accident.
When he took over Twitter in the fall of 2022, one of the reasons he cited was to help the platform make more money.
Since then, the "Twitter Blue" service has become paid.
Now, perhaps surprisingly, Meta has decided to do the same with "Meta Verified."
What is Meta Verified?
The feature has already been rolled out in the United States, Australia and New Zealand, but it's now rolling out to the UK - and it's only a matter of time before the rest of Europe follows suit.
Those with a Meta-verified account, the tech firm says, will have more protection.
How has Meta made money so far?
Like pre-Musk Twitter, most of Meta's revenue has come from ads paid for by brands, creators and businesses. Advertising ranges from targeted content, video ads and Messenger ads.
Verified account is giving the platform an alternative money earning. And of course the big question remains: what happens next?
