Meta can get rid of ads on Facebook provided you pay

The American company decided not complying with new regulations and in May 2023 the sanction was finally dropped. The Irish regulator fined Meta a record 1.2 billion euros. To avoid paying this substantial sum, Meta had 5 months to terminate any transfer of data to the US, followed by an additional 6 months to cancel any illegal use or storage of that information.

Want a paid subscription to remove ads on Facebook and Instagram?

But according to our colleagues at the New York Times, Meta has a plan to ease tensions with European regulators. Indeed, the Menlo Park firm wants: Launching a service that will allow users to pay to not see ads on Facebook and Instagram. No information about the price or release date of this feature has been filtered for now, and Meta declined to comment on the matter.

Note that Meta has chosen not to launch its new Threads social network in Europe to avoid a new conflict with the European Union. But if access to the service was possible thanks to a very simple manipulation, Meta tightened the screw in July 2023 to prevent European users from launching Threads.
