Facebook Is Letting Religious Groups Charge Users $10 Per Month For Exclusive Co by RubiesBanking: 9:02am On Jul 27
Facebook is trying to persuade religious groups to partner with it, The New York Times reported.

The Times reported that Facebook has been courting religious groups since at least 2018, but it's made even more effort over the past year.

The Times spoke with the Leaders of the Church of God in Christ church, which recently trialed two new tools from Facebook to help it make money. The first let worshippers donate to the church while watching livestreamed services, and the second was a $10 subscription service for exclusive content, including messages from the bishop.

The Times also reported that, last month, Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer, held a virtual summit for faith leaders in the style of a religious service. At the summit, religious leaders discussed new products Facebook had been trialing for their groups.

"Faith organizations and social media are a natural fit because fundamentally both are about connection," Sandberg said, The Times reported.

On Thursday, Reuters reported on Facebook's recent push to appeal to religious groups, saying the company introduced a new "prayer" tool in May.

Facebook did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Sandberg also touted Facebook's virtual-reality ambitions.

"Our hope is that one day people will host religious services in virtual reality spaces as well, or use augmented reality as an educational tool to teach their children the story of their faith," she added, The Times reported.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's CEO, has championed Facebook's VR division, and he said in an interview last week that he wanted Facebook to become a "metaverse company" — meaning consumers would interact with it in 3D, rather than through their phone screens.
