My Facebook Profile Is Verified

Published June 4, 2018

Over the weekend I received an email from Facebook letting me know that my profile with them "has been verified."  Facebook said "now people will see a blue badge next to your profile's name."  The email went on to say "your profile has been verified! You'll now see a blue badge next to your name so people will know that it's authentic."

Here is the badge on my profile:

You can see it on my profile page at facebook.com/barryschwartz.   It matches my Twitter verification profile badge.

Facebook says a "if you see a blue badge on a Page or profile, it means that Facebook confirmed that this is the authentic Page or profile for this public figure, media company or brand. Keep in mind that not all public figures, celebrities and brands on Facebook have blue badges." 

If you want to verify your Facebook page, you can submit a request via these instructions.

Now what you ask?  Good question.
