Facebook Is Testing Paid Subscriptions in Groups for Exclusive Content


Facebook will soon let group administrators charge members for providing exclusive content on its platform.

Parenting, cooking and house cleansing personal groups on the social networking platform will be the first ones to access the new feature as part of a pilot programme.

“We’re piloting subscriptions with a small number of groups to continue to support group admins who lead these neighborhoods,” Alex Deve, Product Director, Groups at Facebook, said in an article on Wednesday.

Membership groups line up with the experience that Facebook made available to support video developers previously in 2018.

Sarah Mueller began a group called “Declutter My Home” on Facebook as a method to influence and inspire others to clean their apartment or home.

The group rapidly became an active neighborhood for assisting tens of countless people across the world to lower mess in their areas.

“With her brand-new subscription group, ‘Organise My Home’, members will have the ability to work together on bite-sized projects, and have access to easily actionable checklists, tutorials, live videos and more to assist with home organisation,” Facebook stated.

“With the brand-new ‘Organise My Home’ membership group, I will have the ability to supply this new community with more interactive ways to having an organised house like mini-projects, group obstacles, training, and live Q&A,” Mueller kept in mind.

Inning accordance with a report in The Next Web, group administrators will have the ability to charge up to $29.99 monthly throughout the pilot.

“For now, Facebook won’t be collecting a cut of the membership costs,” the report added.

For members, they are now able to sign-up and handle their subscription through the Facebook app for iOS and Android.
