  3. Select Facebook page / profile to verify
  4. Nominate official website
  5. Request a Facebook verified page / profile.

 

Here’s how to get a Facebook verified page:

1. What is a Facebook verified page / profile?

Some Pages and profiles have been verified by Facebook to let people know that they’re authentic. If you see a blue badge Facebook-Verified-Blue-Tick-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. If you see a grey badge Facebook-Verified-Gray-Grey-Tick-Badge on a Page, it means that Facebook confirmed that this is an authentic Page for this business or organisation.

2. Do you qualify for a verified badge?

Select people, sports, media, entertainment and government Pages may be eligible for verification if they can show their authenticity and meet Facebook’s requirements for having a Verified Badge.

Note: Right now, Facebook don’t support verification requests for other types of Pages (ex: businesses, brands, organisations).

3. Select Facebook page / profile to verify

To confirm your request with Facebook, your application must attach one of the following official documents:

  • Drivers License
  • Passport
  • Birth Certificate
  • Articles of Incorporation (if you represent a media, entertainment or sports company)

4. Nominate official website

If applicable, please provide Facebook a link to your official website

5. Request a Facebook verified page / profile.

Is Tony Hawk a person or a brand?

Tony Hawk is one of the greatest professional skateboarders of all time, I have been following him since I was a kid. I watched him fly through the air at the Australian Grand Prix the other weekend with grace and beauty. The branding for the event was “Tony Hawk and Friends Vert Jam”.

Over the years Hawk has lent his name to video games, amusement park rides, and an expanding digital empire. I asked a young teenage boy beside me at the Grand Prix skate ramp a simple brand question:

“Which came first; Tony Hawk the skater or Tony Hawk the video game?”

The young kid shot back his answer instantly with confidence; “Tony Hawk the video game”.

Wow.

As far as this kid was concerned, the bloke spinning up gnarly tricks on the vert ramp had just adopted the name Tony Hawk because of a really cool video game.

Wow.

This week on the Beers, Blokes and Business podcast the blokes give their own first hand experiences of managing their personal and business brands.  Have a listen.
