Today Facebook announced verified pages similar to Twitter’s Verified profiles. Facebook’s verified pages and profiles will have a blue check marks just like twitter and google plus which both use a check mark to verify profiles. I’ve been reading comments on Instagram, along with noticing spam and fake accounts which gives me the feeling that it won’t be long before we see verified Instagram profiles soon. Below is the announcement from Facebook.
Today we’re launching verified Pages to help people find the authentic accounts of celebrities and other high-profile people and businesses on Facebook. Verified Pages have a small, blue check mark beside their name on timelines, in search results, and elsewhere on Facebook.
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 rolling out to profiles as well.
Obviously Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s personal profile page is verified and it looks like I made the verified list too.
What social network do you think we’ll see launch verified accounts next?
