Paying to use Facebook, still exceeds the limits of the surreal. But the truth is that we are much closer than we thought. A Facebook premium without advertising, is what Mark Zuckerberg is preparing.
Some time ago, we told you that the idea of a paid Facebook was not so crazy, so as not to suffer the advertising. We put a price on that possibility, but today the idea returns with more force since apparently it is no longer an assumption to be an imminent reality.
Would you pay a subscription to use Facebook?
We think 90% of those who read this question will answer: No. We are used to paying for useful subscriptions, like Netflix, or the newcomer Utomik.
What would happen if when entering a day on Facebook we were asked to join the paid subscription? This question and many others have been raised at the Facebook offices after intensive market research.
In this study they have been able to verify how many people would be willing to pay for a Facebook without advertising We start from the base, that almost All of today's social networks are free and must be financed in some way, hence the advertising. There are certain methods to get rid of ads momentarily, as is the case with Instagram.
According to the study carried out by the social network, this type of paid subscription, will encourage more people to belong to Facebook Apparently, the company already considered this option some time ago and now it has gained strength after the Facebook scandals and the data leak, as well as Mark's appearance before the United States Congress itself.
Mark approaches the possibility of paid subscription, not as a renewal of the social media business idea, but to support to those who leave the networks because of the immense publicity.
On ads alone, Facebook made $41 billion in 2017. The paid subscription should make up for that revenue that would be lost. It would be a way to reasonably offset the advertising revenue and exchange it for the paid subscription.
While it is true, Mark is aware that not everyone would be willing to pay for something that has been free for more than 10 years. The paid subscription option has been seen by users as a attitude of greed by part of the social network, but that vision is changing and that is what Mark clings to.
The leak of the personal data of millions of users has jeopardized the reputation of Facebook, so a solution would be a subscription to prevent advertisers from having access to the private information of hundreds of thousands of profiles.
The door is still open and as long as they continue to raise the paid subscription, the closer we will be to pay to use Facebook and get rid of the dangers of advertisers.
Will Facebook always be free, or will there be a paid subscription? Would you pay to use Facebook? Does the advertising of this social network bother you? What do you think of the supposed paid subscription?
