Following in the footsteps of Twitter’s subscription model, Instagram has now confirmed it’s working on a new paid feature, ‘Exclusive Stories’.
For the past two weeks, screenshots of the rumored feature have been circulating online following Alessandro Paluzzi’s tweet. Instagram later confirmed to TechCrunch that the screenshots were of an internal prototype the company was working on.
According to Engadget, users who chance upon Exclusive Stories will be told “only members” can view the content. It also appears that viewers won’t be allowed to screenshot these videos.
Content creators might have to add previews of these paid stories to their Highlights in order to entice followers into shelling out for the subscription.
Though Instagram has yet to announce a launch date for this feature, it’s clear the company is following other social media platforms in developing new ways to keep content creators on the app. Could your favorite influencers be offering paid behind-the-scenes content on Instagram? We’ll find out soon.
