Facebook launches verified pages and profiles
facebook verified

Today Facebook is launching verified Pages and Profiles to help users find the real accounts of celebrities and well known people and businesses on Facebook, much like Twitter. Verified Pages and Profiles will have a small blue tick beside their name on the page itself, search results and elsewhere on Facebook.

Verified Pages belong to a small group of prominent public figures (celebrities, journalists,
government officials, popular brands and businesses) with large audiences. This update is rolling out to profiles as well.

Facebook says this is rolling out today so you should start seeing them pretty soon.
