All verified pages will have a blue check mark at the right side of the name. This check mark will be there on timeline and search results. This check mark is exactly similar to the Twitter’s check mark.

“Today we’re launching verified Pages to help people find the authentic accounts of celebrities and other high-profile people and businesses on Facebook. Verified Pages have a small, blue check mark beside their name on timelines, in search results, and elsewhere on Facebook ,” Facebook Announced.

Facebook has started rolling out this update. Pages and then profile will get the verification check mark. Facebook will verify each page and profile before awarding this verification badge.

“Some well-known public figures and Pages with large followings (ex: celebrities, journalists, government officials, popular brands and businesses) are verified by Facebook as having an authentic identity. You’ll see a blue badge  next to their names. Hover over the blue badge on a verified profile or Page to learn more,” Facebook explains about verified pages and profiles.
