What are Badges?

Facebook is currently testing a feature called ‘Badges’ on Instagram. Badges provide users the opportunity to ‘tip’ a creator as part of a live stream, similar to the Stars product on Facebook. 

When will this be happening?

Gradual expansion of this tool is expected to commence this week, and testing will continue through to the end of the year. 

Who is Eligible?

In order to be eligible to participate in Badges, amongst other criteria, creators must have at least 10k followers on Instagram, and must be in one of the 12 countries listed below. 

  • USA
  • UK
  • Germany
  • Brazil
  • France
  • Italy
  • Turkey
  • Spain
  • Mexico
  • India
  • Australia
  • Japan


We are excited to announce that users on Facebook and Instagram are now able to express themselves through music in Austria and Lithuania, by including music in user-generated content, adding music from our catalog to their Stories, and using other creative tools such as Lyrics on Instagram. 

With the roll-out of music products in these new countries, people can enhance their Facebook and Instagram experiences with music, including the newest releases, regional hits and classic oldies.  We’re thrilled to enable people to include music in the moments they share on our platforms, and are excited to support local music communities as fans express themselves in meaningful ways through music.
