Facebook today announced that it is launching verified Pages and Profiles for its high-profile users.

Today we’re launching verified Pages to help people find the authentic accounts of celebrities and other high-profile people and businesses on Facebook. Verified Pages have a small, blue check mark beside their name on timelines, in 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.

 

Will this tiny little blue button 851585_378769725563049_1218877138_n make a any difference on Facebook ?
