Just like Twitter and Google +, the Facebook begins the process of checking profiles of some prominent people in the media world we live in. Say singers, athletes, media personalities and celebrities in general (professional blogger account?) Will have the deserved recognition after confirming the identity and have the account “verified”.
The social network will ask these people high garbo to send an official document issued by the government which included data such as full name and date of birth. From there, the company reserves the right to put the important ahead of the suggestions of pages that deserve to carry the signature of mere users (you and I, of course).
The TechCrunch confirmed the information and gives Lady Gaga as an example. Who search for Stefani Germanotta, the artist’s first name, could reach different results than the official profile. With the verified account is easier for the Facebook algorithm to understand the importance of Lady Gaga forward to other Internet users and suggest her profile more prominently.
In addition, it is up to Lady Gaga decide whether to display your professional name, first name or both on the page that keeps on Facebook. This means that break, the Facebook open support for pseudonyms on the social network.
Verification of Facebook accounts will be proactive. That is, the social network will ask the person to confirm the data taking into account several factors, including the page number of subscribers (I have mine, if someone wants to sign). You who are not a celebrity can not request that your account is checked (not me).
In other news related to the social network, the Brazilian website specializing in advertising AdNews reports that corporate profiles with the timeline feature begin to be tested in March in the United States.
