  • The Meta company is suggesting to European regulators the possibility of an advertisement-free subscription for Instagram and Facebook.

  • For approximately €10 (~$10.5), individuals in the EU have the option to utilize one account on a computer without tailored advertisements. Each additional linked account would cost an extra €6 (~$6.3), and there is also a 30% commission for mobile app store purchases.

  • These plans are not expected to be accessible to users in different locations.


Facebook and Instagram have been a crucial part of people’s lives for quite some time now. Facebook popularized the whole concept of social media, getting people attuned to sharing their lives with the public. The platforms have remained free for users, thriving on personalized ads instead. But what if you could pay to remove these ads on Instagram and Facebook? That’s an idea that Meta is playing around with, according to a report.

A recent report by The Wall Street Journal states that Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, has suggested to regulators in Europe that users be offered a monthly subscription for an ad-free experience. Alternatively, users can continue to use the apps for free if they consent to receiving personalized ads.
