Facebook Introduces Verified Accounts

Starting next week, Facebook will be introducing verified pages. Much like Twitter, verified pages will display a small blue check mark besides the owner’s name. This check will also populate anywhere else the verified user’s name shows up on Facebook.


The verification process will also be similar to Twitter and will not be offered to everyone. Verified accounts will be reserved for public figures like celebrities, government officials and popular brands. We think it is great that Facebook is now offering this verification. With increasing ambiguity online, anything that can help identify real, official accounts, is welcomed.
