How to get Facebook page verified ??
We came up with a brand new column i.e ‘Our Opinion’ in Speaking Dots. I’ve seen a lot of people asking me about How to verify a facebook page. So I’ve decided to share some information regarding what I know about this facebook page verification topic. Actually facebook has two badge for verification :
Some Pages and profiles have been verified by Facebook to let people know that they’re authentic. If you see a blue badge on a Page or profile, it means that Facebook confirmed that this is the authentic Page or profile for this public figure, media company or brand. If you see a gray badge on a Page, it means that Facebook confirmed that this is an authentic Page for this business or organization.
let’s see about who can do this verification process. Just like some other blogs, I don’t directly say that ‘do this process to get your page verified’. Because, some readers may read that info and follow that steps and later gets disappointed with bad results. So I just love to be frank with my blog readers. So that’s why I want to share only genuine information. For some pages, facebook automatically verifies and gives verified symbol. I’ve two friends who have automatically got verified badge for their artist pages. But we can’t expect that our pages too get automatically verified. So that’s why I want to share some procedure by which we can get verified badge by manual process. So let’s dig into the topic,
Who are eligible for facebook page/profile verification?
1) Celebrities and public figures – sports, media, politics and entertainment.
2) Global brands and businesses.
3) Government Officials.
So if you belong to any of those above categories, you can get your facebook page verified. To be frank, a normal person or a common man cannot get a verified page. Also, local businesses aren’t eligible for verification. I’ve seen a lot of people who applied for verification and mostly all got failed. So try to understand that it’s not an easy task to get our page verified. Ok, now read the below methods and gain some knowledge about what to do to get verified.
What things should you have to verify your facebook page?
From the below list, you can submit any one of the proofs.
- Birth Certificate
- Drivers License
- Articles of Incorporation (if you represent a media, entertainment or sports company)
What things you should do before you apply for verification?
1) Make sure that you complete the ‘About section’ of your Page.
2) If you have an official website, then link your Fb page from that site. Which means, simply insert your page like box on your site.
Types of verification available for your facebook page:
- Automatic Verification by facebook
- Submitting proofs by filling out a form
- Manual Verification (by taking help of near by Fb offices) (This method mostly works for only people/artists/celebrities/businesses who already have some fame)
How to verify your facebook page:
Here we need to submit the proofs by filling out a form. I’m giving you the form link, so click the below Verification form button
If it is saying that “this page isn’t available”, then you must apply USA proxy in your browser and then go to
verification link: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/356341591197702
So go to that form which I gave above and follow as per the steps written there. Of course, I’m explaining all the steps here, so look at below part,
1): Select your required page from the ‘Select Page’ drop down box.
2): Attach your proofs by clicking ‘Choose Files’.
3): If you have an official website of your’s, then submit the link.
4): Finally, click ‘Send’.
So when you have successfully done the process, you will receive a mail from facebook within a short time. And later, again you will get a mail about your verification status. So this is the official way to verify your Fb page.
So, how many days does it take for my facebook page to get verified if I go through Manual verification?
Ans) Well, as I’ve many friends who got their facebook pages verified via Manual verification and as I’ve seen a lot of verified pages, so based on my knowledge I’m sharing this!
For Celebrities, Sports, Music, Politics etc categories pages it takes 3-6 days!
For Business category pages it may take 7 – 45 days! (A lot of verification steps will be done, that’s why it can take up to 45 days) (I’m talking about Blue badge verification but not Grey badge! Grey badge verification is easy, it just takes few days only)
Note: Normal people can’t get verified by this manual verification method! You must be already having some fame in your field so that the fb staff will check and decide your verification
