Facebook Should Have A Verification Process Like Twitter For Celebrity Profiles

As you may have noticed, there is a huge influx of celebrities joining Facebook. I’m not talking about the Fan Pages like those from the WWE Universe, shows from Sirius/XM Radio or else. Sports athletes, like Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, has a legitimate account on Facebook, but it is hard to tell with a sea of potential fake profiles.

Thousands of celebrities also use Twitter as a networking platform, like Conan O’Brien and Ellen DeGeneres. For them to have a Verified account, they have to answer a set of questions on why they should make their own tweets (or in Conan’s case and his group of Twitter accounts, he only is verified for his own, while members of his Burbank, California based Team CoCo manage the other accounts.)

Now Facebook is home to over 500 million users and up to 1 million are celebrities. Facebook, however, has no verification process for celebrities to become verified and thus leads to fake celebrity profiles. Verified accounts would not only give fans a chance to communicate with their favorite celebrities (like in my case, since I like professional wrestling, I would like to communicate at times with Ken Anderson (TNA), Randy Orton (WWE), the Bella Twins (WWE), Brock Lesnar (UFC) and others.) It is just harder to determine which account is legitimate unless they explain that their account is the real deal, like if they talk about their matches, their families and actually interact with their fans.

Now today’s Poll Question of the Day:
