Meta Intends to Charge $14 per Month for Ad-free Instagram and Facebook Access

Meta is a publicly listed business that owns and administers the social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, Threads, and WhatsApp.

Meta executives have discussed the concept with Irish privacy authorities, digital competition regulators in Brussels, and EU privacy regulators.

The EU has been working on stronger regulation of big tech to safeguard European users online and stimulate competition in the sector dominated by US behemoths.
