At Meta, we strongly believe in enabling creators to make a living through our platforms and have built a suite of tools to allow them to do that—helping them get support from their audience, partner with brands, and earn money from advertising or bonuses directly from Instagram and Facebook. We're excited to introduce our newest monetization feature: Instagram Subscriptions."

The benefits that creators will provide to their subscribers include the following:
