Instagram was recently reported to be planning a new feature that allows creators on the platform to earn extra money from the content they upload.
It is known that this feature allows users to support their favourite creators on Instagram by subscribing to get updates or exclusive content from these creators.
Information related to this subscription feature was first discovered by Sensor Tower and Apptopia where the feature is known to have been tested on the Instagram application for the iOS operating system.
The subscription fee on Instagram will be available starting from $0.99 (approx. ₦500) to $4.99 (approx. ₦2500). Previously, there were also reports that Instagram was also preparing a feature called Instagram Exclusive Stories that might be part of the subscription system for these users.
Actually, the subscription system is not a new thing for social media applications. Today other apps like YouTube to Twitter also have their own subscription features that allow users to pay a certain amount of money per month to get exclusive content from their favourite creators.
