Washington Post to Launch Paywall

The Washington Post is getting into the paywall game. Hey, it’s better late than never. The metered digital subscription system will debut this summer.

Much like the New York Times’ model, WaPo will allow people to read 20 articles per month (aside from its home page and classifieds, which won’t have a limit attached) but after that, they’ll have to pay up. Also — just like the TimesWaPo won’t count visits via social media links.

As of now there is no official word on what the digital subscription plans will cost, but “further details” are coming.
