Instagram: The Internet has given work to many people who already receive their income for the time they spend creating content. Others are models and campaign for brands, putting their legions of followers at their service. But all this may change, especially on Instagram, where work is already being done on the implementation of a subscription system for users.
A new source of income on Instagram
Those who live on the Internet do so thanks to the fact that the platforms where they carry out their activity pay them due to their high number of followers and that allow them to place different advertisements with which to earn money. That’s not to mention the collaborations with the brands that they can have when it’s time, whose terms are already negotiated between both parties.
But on Instagram they have taken note of rival social networks and will soon take a turn towards subscriptions. This new system will allow users of the Meta social network to enter the profile of their favorite profiles and find a new button that invites them to subscribe. It is a feature in which the content creator will receive an amount from his followers.
🎉 Subscriptions 🎉
Subscriptions allow creators to monetize and become closer to their followers through exclusive experiences:
– Subscriber Lives
– Subscriber Stories
– Subscriber Badges
We hope to add more creators to this test in the coming months. More to come. ✌🏼 pic.twitter.com/SbFhN2QWMX

These will enjoy advantages over those who do not pay, although there will also be levels depending on the amount they contribute. This can be from one euro to approximately 100 euros and from everything raised Instagram will not take absolutely anything, at least until 2023 according to what TechCrunch has. Data regarding this measure will be known later, but for now there are only a few chosen ones who have access to this functionality.
More benefits for paying users
As we told you before, being subscribed to an Instagram profile has its advantages for users. While free users will only see part of the content generated by the creator, those who have paid will have access to exclusive content that the creator decides. They can be Stories, for example, but that is at the expense of the person who creates everything you see. There will also be emblems, something that could differentiate users who pay more than those who pay less.
This is already happening on some social networks and video platforms such as Twitch, where content creators can decide if their followers can enter a Discord channel, use certain emotes or badges.
