Why should I get verified?

Blue or Grey?
If you’ve set up your page as a brand, media company or as a public figure you get the golden ticket, aka the blue badge beside your page or profile:
This means Facebook recognises that your page is the real deal. You won’t have to use the word ‘official’ because the blue badge indicates this.
And if someone tries to use the same name, it will be easy for people to differentiate between the fake page and yours! Fill out the Request A Verified Badge form.
But wait! Maybe you’re not quite that big. You’re running a local business. What do you get?
You get a grey badge on your page.

What are the real benefits to verifying your Facebook page?
- People who visit your page will see you’re legit because Facebook only verifies businesses that exist
- You appear at the top of the searches – before non-verified pages at least
- You can brag about your verification badge
Once you’ve got your verification badge, remember that what Facebook giveth he can also taketh away.
Break any terms or annoy Facebook and they’ll remove your verification. So be good!
