Verified Pages display small blue circles with a white check mark in the middle to indicate that identities have been confirmed.

The blog post used a verified Facebook page of singer and actress Selena Gomez as an example.

'Verified Pages belong to a small group of prominent public figures (celebrities, journalists, government officials, popular brands and businesses) with large audiences,' Facebook said.

'This update is rolling out to profiles as well.'

Twitter has long featured similar verification badges that have become status symbols of sorts at the globally popular one-to-many messaging service.
