Facebook will let group admins charge for membership

Posted by @audreylaine, Thu, Jun 21 8:53am

The social media giant has announced that it is piloting a subscription-based program that will allow group admins to charge users $4.99 to $29.99 per month for access to special sub-groups.The company says it’s doing this after feedback from some group admins that it takes them a lot of time and effort to maintain their groups.

Be aware that Facebook is only piloting this program with a small, select number of groups. Once they understand how group members feel about subscription fees, they’ll decide on whether to expand the program more widely.
