Gone are the days when verified accounts were meant only for Twitter. Facebook, the largest social networking site today has joined the bandwagon by making sure the high profiles, celebrities, and big brands have verified accounts. This step is sure to help several users to find authentic accounts of the people they want to stay connected with.
Facebook will proactively authenticate the pages and profiles, however, users too can report fake accounts. This may have come after a micro-blogging site inadvertently verified a fake account for Rupert Murdoch's wife Wendi back in Jan. 2012. What’s more, Facebook has not really explained what the verification process involves. As such there is no application page, or even a list that is available for accounts that would like to be considered for verification.
