NOT HAPPY: It is unknown how many internet users actually deactivated or deleted their Facebook and Instagram accounts after the announcement
Definitely, paying for your social networks is not a fashionable idea. Since the announcement on February 19 of the arrival of a paid subscription on Facebook and Instagram, Internet users have made their dissatisfaction known.
On Google Trends, searches for how to delete your Facebook or Instagram account literally exploded from the day of the announcement. It was the VPNOverview site that relayed the impressive statistics: in one day, the search for “deactivate” Instagram jumped 2,400% on Google Trends, reports Phonandroid .
A formula at 16 euros
Facebook recorded a score almost as strong: searches to deactivate or delete their account on the largest social network increased by 1,566%. An unequivocal way for Internet users to let Mark Zuckerberg and the makers of Meta know what they think of the paid formula to come.
Following in the footsteps of Twitter, the American group intends to launch a subscription at around 16 euros, which will allow you to obtain the famous certification badge. The new formula is currently being tested in Australia and New Zealand, for global rollout at an unknown date.
