Instagram has finally launched the Badges feature in the US publicly. This feature allows content creators to receive financial support from their followers in exchange for providing a “badge” on the social network.
The Badges feature has been tested by invitation for about a year and a half, by invitation, but from today all eligible US manufacturers can use it. Have access. By being accepted into the scheme, manufacturers can sell their tokens to their followers to receive some form of financial support.
The tokens are available in three levels priced at $ 0.99, $ 1.99 and $ 4.99, with one, two and three hearts next to the username during the live broadcast. Marked users’ questions will be displayed more prominently on live broadcasts, and their usernames will be available for up to 90 days through a special list for content creators.
Instagram says it will not receive a share of content creators’ revenue until 2023, but the help page states that Apple and Google may receive a share of that revenue through their in-app payment system.
Although the Badges feature is currently only enabled in the US, not all Instagram content creators will be able to provide this feature to their audiences. To use this feature, users must have a content creator or business account, live in the United States, have at least 10,000 followers, and be over 18 years old. In addition, these individuals must comply with various Instagram rules and regulations, including Partner Monetization Policies and Content Monetization Policies.
If a user is subject to these conditions, he can go to his profile page and use the Professional Dashboard section to tap on the Set Up Badges option to register in this plan.
