Facebook has started to introduce a new verification badge for the official profiles and profile page owners. This special feature consists of a small blue check mark sitting next to the profile name of the owner same like we see in twitter accounts. This feature will be available for high ranked people profiles to give them a level of authenticity as in twitter’s own verified accounts. The service will be first given to celebrities and high quality business pages. It also includes popular individual profiles or popular individual pages and even some groups.
The official Facebook news page verified it by saying that the update is rolling out soon and will be available for profiles as well.
The site also mentioned that the Verified Pages have a small, blue check mark beside their name on timelines, in search results, and elsewhere on Facebook.
