Roll Out of Verified Profiles and Page Badges on our Social Network

Posted by on in Website Tutorials & Updates

b2ap3_thumbnail_Verified-Accounts-BLOG.jpgWe have begun to roll out a new feature on our own Fairfax 2015 Social Network to assist WPFG athletes, family and fans in getting official answers to your questions.

Taking a page from Twitter, Facebook and other social networks we have made the decision to add 'Verified' badges on profile and fan pages. The badges will appear as a red check next to the name. In the initial roll out the individuals who will receive the verified designation are:

 - Fairfax 2015 Management 
 - Fairfax 2015 Sports Coordinators
 - World Police & Fire Games Federation Official

We take the extra step to add this feature to profiles and pages to help you be sure that they are who they claim to be. Please keep in mind that not all authentic profiles and pages are verified and (at this time) you can't request to have your profile or page verified. You can report fake accounts that are impersonating you, your business or brand. 

If your profile or page isn't verified, there are other ways to help your followers or the people that like your page know that your identity is authentic. For example, you can: Link to another social media account such as Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin; Complete the About section of your profile or page to provide more information.

We may expand the verification system to Athletes, Coaches and Team Captains in the near future once our web staff is expanded in order to handle these requests.
