Meta May Charge Instagram Users in Europe $14 Monthly Subscription Fee for Ad-Free Access
Meta, the parent company of Instagram, is considering implementing a monthly subscription fee of $14 for European Instagram users who wish to access the platform without targeted ads. Additionally, there is a potential combined monthly fee of $17 for ad-free access to both Facebook and Instagram on desktop. This move is a response to a court ruling in July that requires Facebook to obtain user consent for accessing their personal data. Users who decline targeted ads may be offered subscription-based ad-free alternatives.
