Social Media and Subsription
Twitter isn’t the only free social media platform to introduce paid subscription plans. YouTube offers its Premium plan which allows you to watch any video without ads and watch videos while offline and we might add watch videos without having the app open too. Twitter previously introduced Twitter Blue which asked users to pay for a subscription that provided some very enticing benefits. Now, Twitter also opted to implement yet another subscription plan For Super Follows. Various reports suggest that Facebook has long considered adding these kinds of payment options for years now and might actually release subscription plans in the near future.
Social Media platforms have mostly been free for anyone who wants to use them. They’ve begun charging their users a certain amount to deliver exclusive services. In order to make a profit from the media platforms themselves, companies have sought to diversify their sources of income. Users or businesses looking to market themselves more effectively could pay a little extra in exchange for the features they want – like previously unavailable ones.
