Facebook verifying profiles to stamp out fakes

There have been a number of occasions we have visited a Facebook profile and seen the amount of followers they have, we believe a lot of these to be fake likes etc as so do Facebook.

Facebook have now decided to look more into this by verifying Facebook profiles and pages of public figures.

Verified Pages will be set in place to help Facebook users find authentic accounts of high-profile people, celebrities and businesses, ones that have real audiences and not fakes.

Facebook accounts that are in the process of being verified will have a small blue check mark on them next to verified accounts on Timelines and in search results.

There are so many Facebook accounts that pretend to be someone they are not and this is why Facebook is stamping down on this.

Have you come across a fake Facebook account, please do let us know if you see a blue check mark on your profile page?
