Instagram May Be Considering A Paid Blue Check Verification Subscription.

After Elon Musk introduced the paid subscription for Twitter where people could basically buy a Blue Check peopled wondered if Instagram would do the same thing. Now it seems like Meta and IG are considering it.

According to TechCrunch

"Recently discovered code snippets reference explicitly refer to a “paid blue badge” and a new subscription product, a developer has discovered. The same reference also appears in the latest build of the Facebook app, indicating paid verification could be offered across Meta’s platforms if the product continued to be developed."

Ughhhh honestly, what's the point of a blue check if anyone can buy it?! The purpose for it was to prove that someones account was THERE account. That way no one could be fooled by a fake Beyoncé account that had like two "E's" or something! I already pay for enough subscriptions...I will NOT be buying this one if it happens!
