According to Zygmund Ballman, the world is living in a “liquid modernity.” The people do so many things and forget the most important, making the relationship stronger and solid. Like this modernity, the companies are creating more and more software that can accompany this new world. Instagram is not different. This software needs to maintain itself. Then they need to monetize all the things online to get this maintenance. Some apps are paid. Then if you want to access some information, you have to create an account and start to use it. The same thing happens with the apps, and they are constantly changing. The maintenance of this software is not cheap. Then they have to think of a way to earn money from this. Some items inside Instagram will request payment.
You wouldn’t take a screenshot in the channel that will request payment because they are exclusive content. But the page owner can select some posts to be a highlight, then the l person who accesses after the store will see the posts. This post will have a tag like now that Instagram has a tool like this. In this tag, you can select the people or group that can see your post, but this is so hard, and take your time to do it. With the exclusive tool, you can select only paid members. And only these members will have access to this exclusive content. According to the information, these tools will be available soon. The content creator will be able to filter the free content and paid content. For those people that use social media to work, this will improve your income. Imagine the fan clubs that can take complete information from the Idol, and they need to take money to have this information. They sometimes spend money, and others can take advantage of it. With the whole post, they can receive back the money they spend with it. The Company could give more details f these new tools. They aren’t is a position to comment about these new subjects.
Why is the platform creating this new exclusive tool?
Nowadays, we know that many people are using to copy the content from others, you can see many blogs with the exact text, and they start to earn money with it. But these kinds of things are wrong. It is disrespect to the creator. When you have the same opinion, it is not a problem you take some words or rephrase the content. But many people are taking the complete text and posting it on their page. These kinds of things are crime and unethical. Many users read the posts but don’t like or share, and thus don’t bring money for the content creator. Work on the internet can request a lot of work from you, which is not fair if others take your career to earn money. Then, if social media can create a tool that the user must pay for the information, you can have more respect for this content producer. Many users used to take screenshots from the post of someone and post on another social media, and they monetized this post. Do you think this is fair? For writing 1K-word, you can take more than eight hours; imagine the researchers that you have to do, the time with your family that you can’t stay with them because of your followers. It is too hard to create content and comes another person uses your text to make money from others. Because of these unfair people, the platforms are trying to create exclusive tools. You will be able to produce content and tag only the person that is paying for it.
The quantities of information on the internet nowadays are uncountable; you can read and watch about every content. Because of these facilities the people sometimes can’t create good content but want to earn money from the internet. Then they start to search for information from other people and post as this content was from them. These copies are called plagiarism. For the creator, it is unfair, and they always hope for help about it. Instagram is thinking about this security every time, and the maintainers are trying to help their users, and obviously, everybody can win with the solution.
