Facebook will soon let group administrators charge members for providing exclusive content on its platform.
Parenting, cooking and home cleaning private groups on the social networking platform will be the first ones to access the new feature as part of a pilot programme.
“We’re piloting subscriptions with a small number of groups to continue to support group admins who lead these communities,” Alex Deve, Product Director, Groups at Facebook, said in a blog post on Wednesday.
Subscription groups align with the experience that Facebook made available to support video creators earlier in 2018.
Sarah Mueller started a group called “Declutter My Home” on Facebook as a way to inspire and motivate others to tidy up their apartment or house.
The group quickly became an active community for helping tens of thousands of people across the world to reduce clutter in their spaces.
