The largest social networking website, Facebook, has currently launches the “verified pages and profiles” offering a greater variety of authenticity for popular personalities and high-profile businesses. When a page or a profile is verified by Facebook, a blue check will appear beside ones profile name. Facebook have thousands of fake accounts and millions of people follow them. It is also a one way of giving the opportunity to the people to follow the verified personality that they idolize, or maybe a huge company that they look forward working to.
Another social networking site, Twitter, who already has the ‘verified’ feature, recently had a problem dealing with people who request their profile to be verified. Verified pages and profiles on Facebook will not be upon request or special letter, just like what Twitter did after the problem occurred. The social networking site itself will determine who will receive a verified pages and profiles.
As Facebook becomes the ultimate center of information and news exchange, it is a big step for the social networking site to have authenticated profiles and pages. The social networking site also now serves as the fan base of celebrities the world over. Privates groups use it for contest (most ‘likes’ wins), surveys, information transfer, event invitation, and even use as their own website.
Verified pages and profiles did not literary give much to most of its users. It is only enabled to specific people with huge number of ‘likes’. There are roaming news as well that the criteria for having the blue check beside a profile name did not have specific basis. Just like the famous band Guns n’ Roses who have 22 million likes do not have a blue check beside the name of their fan page but the Jazz singer Michael Bublé who only have 6 million followers have a blue check beside his fan page name.
The mere fact that Facebook is across the globe, there are certain local personalities that need to be acknowledged with a blue check mark all over the world.
