Most of us are hooked on Instagram every hour of the day. Being one of the most popular channels, Instagram acts as a hub for social media creators and influencers. But right now, worldwide, the app is free to use, and anyone who plans to use it must do nothing except create an account with them.
But what if you soon find out that it follows in Twitter’s footsteps and charges you monthly for using the app in different ways?
After Twitter, Instagram is also on its way to launching its subscription model soon. You might have to pay if you wish to read content or visit stories from now on. As per Instagram, this subscription model might take the form of badges. It means for every badge you use, you will need to pay for it.
You can rely on this information, as Instagram subscriptions are already listed as part of the in app purchases within the app store.

What price is displayed for using Instagram
The app store listing in India shows a price of Rs 89 to be paid as a monthly charge. This tag wasn’t there earlier. Previously, only badges ranging from Rs 89 to Rs 449 were listed in the app store.
If you wish to go with the information, you must also hear what Instagram head, Adam Mosseri has to say. In his statements earlier this year, he also hinted at exploring a subscription model for the different content creators in the market.
They would also explore the Fan Club feature, which, too, would target content creators. Ideally, according to Mosseri, there would be three ways to earn money from the content. It could be done through affiliate marketing, selling merchandise, revenue sharing, or the use of tips or badges.
Through these means, people can charge people while putting forth their best content.
Also, it will bring in real followers instead of bots, who would pay for the content created by people to gain exclusivity. They also plan to evolve a marketplace for NFTs, and the same was also hinted at the beginning of the year.
