Facebook just launched its verified Pages to help people find the authentic accounts of celebrities, brands, and companies. The verified pages will have a small, blue check mark beside their names in search results, and on timelines. At the moment, Facebook is deciding the pages that needs to be verified, this puts Facebook in the league of other social networks that have verified accounts. I think it’s a cool move to get back prominent users who have been countlessly impersonated on Facebook, so if you have what it takes, for more information about verified Pages and profiles hit the Help Center link.
Verified Pages belong to a small group of prominent public figures (celebrities, journalists,government officials, popular brands and businesses) with large audiences. This update is rollingout to profiles as well.
