To make it easier for people to find the authentic presence of the person or Page they are looking for, we're rolling out verified Pages to both desktop and mobile web. We think this will create a better user experience and help increase authentic engagement on Facebook, specifically with celebrities, journalists, government officials, and popular brands and businesses.
Verification badges will appear in a number of places:
- Next to the name of the Page
- When hovering over the name of a Page
- In Graph Search queries
- In stories about people liking a Page
- In News Feed ads for your Page
There is no action required for Page admins to add a verification badge. In the coming days, we will automatically verify the largest Pages on Facebook that are at the greatest risk of duplication. At this time we cannot accept verification requests for all Pages. If your Page is not automatically verified, please visit the Help Center to see how to resolve common duplication issues.
