It is unclear what kind of features will be charged at this time. In an interview, John Hegeman, Meta’s Head of Advertisements and Business Products, provided some insights. He said the firm is dedicated to expanding the adverts business. They have no intentions to allow customers to pay to turn off ads.

Of course, the emphasis on advertisements still makes sense, given that they generate most of Meta’s revenue. Even though this year’s sharp decline in the digital advertising market has severely hurt it. Although it’s intriguing to see how Meta approaches the notion of paid features in its flagship products.
