how do i request a blue verification badge, The blue verification badge lets people know that a Facebook Page or profile of public interest
The verified 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 are the requirements to apply for a verified badge?
We take a gander at various factors while evaluating Facebook accounts to determine if they're in the public interest and meet our verification criteria.
In addition to following Facebook's terms of service, your account also needs to be:
Authentic: Your account must represent a real person, registered business or entity.
Unique: Your account must be the unique presence of the person or business it represents. Just one account for every person or business may be verified, with exceptions for language-specific accounts. We don't verify general interest accounts (example: Little dog Memes).
Complete: Your account must be active and have an about section, profile photo and at least one post.
Notable: Your account must represent a notable, often searched person, brand or entity. We review accounts that are featured in multiple news sources, and we don't consider paid or promotional substance as sources for review.
Remember that if you provide false or misleading information during the verification process, we will expel your verified badge and may take additional action to erase your account.
If your account doesn't meet the criteria for a verified badge, there are other ways to tell individuals it's authentic. For example, you can link to it from an official website, Instagram profile or Twitter account.
How do I request a verified badge?
You can submit a request by filling out a contact form.
If your account represents a person, you'll need a duplicate of your official government-issued photo identification (example: passport, driver's license, national identification card) to validate your request. If your account represents an organization, you'll need a duplicate of a telephone or utility bill, a certificate of formation, articles of incorporation, or tax exemption documents. Please also include a few sentences explaining why the account should receive the verified badge, and relevant URLs that help illustrate the account's notability.
You'll receive a notification once we review your request. Please don't submit more than one request for your account. For denied requests, you can submit a new request after 30 days.
Can I buy a verified badge?
Never engage with anyone offering to sell you a verified badge. We don't sell verified badges, and any accounts discovered doing so will have their badges expelled.
We also reserve the right to expel the verified badge from accounts at our discretion.
