Facebook verifying celebrity accounts, allowing pseudonyms
Posted in: Internet Use/New Technologies at 18/02/2012 16:31
Facebook, following the lead of Twitter and Google+, is verifying user accounts and allowing for pseudonyms.
But the verification and policy change on nicknames -- Facebook has previously mandated that users use their legal names -- won't be available to the general public. Instead, verified accounts are by invitation only and, for now, those invitations will go to celebrities and to users with a large number of subscribers.
