First of all, I want to tell you, that I am verified on Facebook 😎. I got Blue Tick in August this year. So believe, I can guide you in the right way.
What is Facebook Verification?
Facebook verification is not about verifying your email account after signing up a fresh account on Facebook. Facebook verification is status of a celebrity’s Facebook fan page or profile.
Users can see a blue check mark along with celebrity name on Facebook, it’s called Blue Tick means the fan page of celebrity is verified by the Facebook team and the celebrity is the real person which she says she is.
Verify your Facebook profile or page
It’s not an easy way, there is some requirements that everyone need to fulfill in order to get that Blue Tick, if you think you are eligible, you can fill in this form to verify your profile or Page.
According to Facebook profile or page need to be:
Represent a real person, registered business or entity.
Be the only presence of this person or business. Only one Page or profile per person or business may be verified, with exceptions for language-specific Pages and profiles. We don’t verify general interest Pages and profiles (e.g. puppy memes).
Have an about section, Page or profile photo and recent activity, including at least one post.
Represent a well-known, often searched person, brand or entity. We review Pages and profiles that are featured in multiple news sources and we don’t consider paid or promotional content as sources for review.
