Facebook is following in the footsteps of Twitter, Airbnb, and Pinterest by rolling out verified accounts set to debut today! In this day and age where anyone can pose as someone else on the internet and the fact that the term “catfishing” exists, verified accounts are important and at times necessary. Now, when you like your favorite band, musician, celebrity or public figure you can be sure that the information they are posting on their pages is accurate. Similar to Twitter verified accounts, Facebook will also include that signature blue check mark next to the name of the page you are visiting.
