Facebook today announced a much needed new feature. They are now going to label verified profiles and pages.
Twitter and Google+ already offer a similar verification system. Verified accounts show a small tick which lets you know that you are on an official profile of a celebrity or a brand.
The company said:
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.
