How To Get A Blue Batch Verification On Facebook

How To Get A Green Batch Verification On Facebook

Having a blue mark on your Facebook page isn't just and advantage over your friend's or a partners page but also a mark of genuineness.

Every day, bulks of questions has been asked about this. But is it worth it and will it transform your business? and what are the steps to apply?

Getting verified on Facebook (whether it is a personal profile or a page) is actually very simple.

The process requires two things:

  • Great press and
  • A compelling reason.

In this post I list the steps that you need to follow to get that highly sought-after  blue verification badge to your name.

  • How to get your personal Facebook page or profile verified
  • How to get your business page on Facebook verified
  • Benefits of being verified, length of approval and more

You might be wondering if you need a lot of followers to get verified. This doesn’t seem to be the case as long as you can prove you are someone worthy of a blue badge.

So, I would suggest you read on to figure out how to get verified on Facebook.

How to get your personal or profile page verified (Blue Badge)

First, let me start by saying that not everyone can be verified, unfortunately.

According to Facebook’s Support Team only people in the following categories can be verified with a badge:

  • Journalists
  • Popular Brand or Businesses
  • Government Officials
  • Celebrities
  • Media
  • Entertainment
  • Sports Companies

If your page falls in to any of these categories, there is a higher chance that you can be verified.

  1. Pro tip #1: If your personal facebook page is not in this category, you can always change it to “Public Figure” by going to About > Category. P
  2. Pro tip #2: You can convert your personal page into a profile and turn all your friends into likes.

When you have your page ready, follow these steps:

  1. Have high-quality, professional content. That means very good images, high engagement, and an overall cohesive brand feel. 
  2. Link to your profile or Page from your official website. (optional, but why wouldn’t you)
  3. For a Facebook Page, different types of basic information boxes will appear in your Page’s About section depending on your Page’s category. It’s important to add accurate details so that people can quickly learn about your Page. Include your website, address, phone number, awards, bio, and more. The more complete it is, the better.
  4. For a Facebook profile, provide accurate information in your profile. Include in your About section a website address that is registered in your name. Make your profile public by default so that people can follow it. Have at least a few hundred followers (~500) before requesting a badge.
  5. There used to be a form link you could use to submit your verification request but that doesn’t exist anymore so you need to do the following (note that this method is not guaranteed to work but might be worth a shot):
    ✔️ Click the blue question mark in the top-right corner of a Facebook page (ex: your home page)
    ✔️ Select Report a Problem > Something Isn’t Working
    ✔️  “Where is the problem?” select Pages.
  6. In the textbox, introduce yourself and write a compelling reason as to why you should be verified. Everyone’s case is different so I won’t tell you what to write. Here you should include your website and links to relevant press articles or a Wikipedia page. Don’t make it an essay, keep it short and quick.(Here, you can read the press I’ve gotten for myself and my companies.)
  7. You should also upload a valid government-issued ID on the Upload Screenshots section.
  8. Wait 2-7 days to hear back from Big Brother Facebook.
