Private social network Togethera has introduced the option of premium accounts for Android users and updated its photo sharing features.
Its upgraded photo sharing feature allows users to add up to 100 photos to a single post. Premium subscribers will also be able to order five free photo prints per month from the end of March.
Sokratis Papafloratos, Founder of Togethera, told TNW that the reasoning behind the decision to start charging people for what was previously a free service was “transparency” –
It’s a stand we’re taking. We have always said that we will keep our users data private and never show them ads, and the only way to do that is to be transparent about how you are making your money.
Premium accounts are Android-only for now, but will come to the company’s iOS app at a later date. Subscriptions start at $2.99 (£2.29) per month with the option to pay $6.99 (£4.99) per quarter or $15.99 (£11.99) for the year.
