On March 28, 2022, Rossgram was presented – the Russian analogue of Instagram with the usual functionality for everyone and new monetization tools. Right now you have the opportunity to become the first users with special benefits. Leave applications for early participation.
Access is still open to investors and bloggers. European truth, but already in April, Rossgram will become available to everyone else, promises Internet marketer Alexander Zobov. The design of the application copies the original Instagram, but there are no photo editing capabilities, for example, writes TASS.
Rossgram will have additional monetization tools for users: paid access to content, a fundraising function, and others. The social network is working on the function of transferring data from Instagram.
Recall that on March 11, the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation asked to restrict access to Instagram and went to court to recognize Meta as an extremist organization. A few hours after the appeal, Roskomnadzor announced that it would block Instagram.
On March 14, Roskomnadzor restricted access to Instagram in Russia. According to the statement of the department, access to the social network is limited due to the spread of calls to commit violent acts against Russians, including military personnel. Earlier, Roskomnadzor decided to block access to the Facebook network in Russia.
