Twitter reintroduced its Blue membership service in December 2022, charging users an additional dollar and a half per month for the privilege. Back in 2022, both Snapchat and Telegram attempted to expand their income streams by introducing subscription-based services that were comparable to one another. For the time being, Facebook’s debut into this industry may be regarded to be in the testing stage; nevertheless, if the early results will be judged suitable, it may end up as an alternative that is accessible on a worldwide scale in the future.
