Facebook Introducing Verified accounts for Pages and Profiles

verifiedJust as Twitter has been doing for years now, Facebook is finally adopting the “Verified Page” flare to pages and profiles of artists and people. The flair, clearly visible in the page and even in the search area, will be rolled out by Facebook, and Facebook only.

Meaning that, and I quote: “Keep in mind that not all authentic profiles and Pages are verified and that you can't request to have your profile or Page verified.”. So, unlike Twitter, you can’t verify every account and you can’t request a verification.

Nevertheless, this is a pretty awesome feature that was very needed and hopefully, in the long run, will help fight the spam and fake accounts in Facebook (that, as we all know, are amazingly common).
