Facebook launches Verified Pages and Profiles, mimicking Twitter’s verification system to guarantee authenticity


Facebook today announced the launch of verified Pages and profiles. Verified accounts belong to a small group of prominent public figures (celebrities, journalists, government officials, popular brands and businesses) with large audiences.

Verified Pages and profiles have a small, dark blue checkmark beside their name on timelines, in search results, and elsewhere on the social network. The similarity with Twitter cannot be overlooked: Facebook’s smaller cousin uses a light blue checkmark for the same purpose.
