Facebook has recently introduced verification of Facebook pages. This option is not available to everyone. So far, celebrities, brands, government officials and a few journalists have been given the verified profile authenticity. The verification symbol is similar to that of twitter’s blue circle with a tick. Now, you would know when you’re being friended by real celebrities. It would be easier to follow the official brand pages and engage with them.
Verified profiles has been a much awaited feature, and now that it has finally arrived, it has made it easier for the fans to follow the genuine pages and people. While this feature is a good practice taken from twitter, do you feel all social networking sites are becoming too similar in nature?
