TikTok is flagging AI content, Artifact is around, and X is requiring IDs… and maybe going to a subscription?

Meta and TikTok News

Some weird stuff is happening this week. X is now offering ID verification in most countries and talking about a monthly app subscription. TikTok is finding ways to identify and label AI-generated content, and Article is still around. Let’s see what’s going on this week.

1. X rolls out ID verification

In an attempt to cut down on spam in the platform, X has begun rolling out ID verification.

“X currently focuses on account authentication to prevent impersonation and may explore additional measures, such as ensuring users have access to age-appropriate content and protecting against spam and malicious accounts, to maintain the platform’s integrity and safeguard healthy conversations,” it said.

2. Artifact is introducing links

Remember Artifact? They’re a text-based app that uses AI to bring you content. Not unlike TikTok, machine learning brings you content that you like… but without the videos.

Anyway, now they’ve added link-sharing to the mix.

Artifact is expanding beyond articles with a new links tab. Starting today, users can share links they find interesting and view a personalized feed of links based on their interests — broadening what’s possible to discover with Artifact’s AI.

3. X could charge a monthly subscription

Would you pay for social media? Most people say no. Elon Musk is willing to test the theory and put the entire app on a monthly subscription.

Musk did not say how much a new plan would cost users of the social network, or what other features would or would not be included with payment at the lowest tier.

So, basically, we don’t know a lot but this could be a thing.

4. TikTok adds a label to identify AI-generated content

This is really interesting. TikTok is flagging AI-generated content on the app. Currently, they’re allowing creators to add the label themselves to bring clarity to the AI elements, but they are also working on ways to label content automatically. It sounds like tests are underway.
