The blue verification badge lets people know that a Page or profile of public interest is authentic.
Facebook apply the blue verification badge to eligible brands, media organizations and public figures. Eligibility for the blue verification badge is based on a variety of factors, such as account completeness, policy compliance and public interest.
If your account doesn’t have a blue verification badge, there are other ways to help let people know that you’re authentic. For example, you can link to your Facebook profile or Page from your official website, Instagram profile or Twitter account.
To request a blue verification badge, your Page or profile must comply with Facebook’s terms of service and have the following:
A cover photo
A profile photo
A name that follows Facebook’s guidelines
Content posted to the account
“Follow” enabled (profiles only)
