The Verification Badge will help you minimize abnormal problems and make it easier to be accepted when submitting an appellant for:

Large pages, branded copyright or celebrity accounts find it much more easy to get The Verification Badge (Facebook is self-sufficient).
Can we, who use Facebook to do business online or build a personal brand on Facebook, get this check mark?
This article will give you the detailed instructions how to do.
THE VERIFICATION BADGE – THE DEFINITION AND BENEFITS
The Verification Badge appears next to a Facebook Page or account’s name in search and on the profile. It means Facebook has confirmed that an account is the authentic presence of the public figure, celebrity, or global brand it represents
What is it used for?
Now there are so many famous artists and businesses are forged by individuals. They create virtual accounts to profit and negatively affect the reputation of artists. Therefore, Facebook decided to grant The Verification Badge to let users know this is truly whose Fanpage is, whose account is.
Facebook will remove the fake accounts. However, if there is only one day, these fake accounts still have time to go.
The Verification Badge is not something that helps your Fanpage or your personal account to earn more money or something more special. Actually, it is simply a confirmation from Facebook for you to help people know that this is the official account, official Fanpage.
However, from the perspective of an advertiser on Facebook, Fanpage with this check mark will bring the following benefits:
♠ Fanpage is less likely to die (it’s almost impossible if you still follow Facebook’s guidelines).
♠ Your brand has more trust with users.
♠ Limiting other people use the fake Fanpage and report back to you.
WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS?
Facebook has also stated that not everyone can get this check mark, they only grant it for the following cases:
+ Fashion brands, sports, food, …
+ Communication organizations: newspapers, television stations, …
+ Public figures: singers, actors, reporters, etc.
Nevertheless, not 100% of all people in this group will be granted
The condition for Facebook to grant you is based on many different factors such as:
+ Your fanpage or account is full of information.
+ Haven’t violated Facebook’s community policy.
+ Having “trust” means having followers, evaluating and interacting like a true user, organization that actually operates.
Facebook they did not say exactly and the conditions they will approve, because basically Facebook does not want to give it in a mass. As a result, if you want it, then register for Facebook to be granted.
WHAT SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR REQUESTING A BLUE VERIFICATION BADGE?
There will be 2 types of documents to prepare based on whether you register for Fanpage or an individual account.
Individual accounts who want to get verified needs to prepare:
