If you’ve ever wondered how to attain that elusive verification badge, you’re in luck. This article will guide you through the process and provide valuable insights on accelerating your Page’s journey to Facebook verification. Discover the power of the blue tick and unlock new opportunities for your online presence.
What is a verified page?
A blue tick or a verified page means that Facebook thinks the particular profile or Page represents the original brand or public personality on Facebook. The blue tick mark is a sign of genuine. Facebook verifies some pages and profiles to let its users know that they’re authentic pages and profiles.
Having a blue badge on a Page or profile means that Facebook has confirmed that this is the authentic Page or profile for the particular public figure, media company, or brand. There is also another variant of the tick which is the gray badge. If you see a gray badge on a Page, it means that Facebook confirmed this is an authentic Page for the particular business or organization.
So, depending on your Page type, you will be eligible for either of the two badges. Gray or Blue, because you should be representing the business officially.
How do I get my Page verified?
Generally, Facebook proactively reaches out to pages and provides them with the badge. However, you can also fill out forms to let them know you are authentic and would like the badge. The biggest myth out there probably is that the number of likes matters. When it comes to verification, the number of likes does not matter.
Let’s go through the blue tick mark. It is only available if the pages are under these categories:
Public Figure, Actor, Athlete, or Musician.
