Facebook adds verified profiles to iOS app

 Inside Facebook – July 10, 2013

Earlier this year, Facebook took a page from Twitter’s book and launched verified profiles, so users can know that they’re really getting updates from a celebrity or prominent person.

With the newest iOS app update, launched Wednesday, Facebook brings that verification to mobile. Now when a Facebook user on their iPhone or iPad sees the timeline of a celebrity (or searches their name), they’ll see the blue verified checkmark. Public figures and major brands also get the verification stamp.

Other fixes in version 6.3 of the iOS app:

  • Improved places editing to fix categories, phone numbers and other info on iPad.
  • Implemented a fix for a problem that was causing News Feed to load slowly for some people.

Clicking the icon brings up the code to embed the image elsewhere. The code shows the user name and provides a link to his or her profile on Instagram.com. If the photos are private, the embed code is not available.“As always, you own your photos and videos, and we want to make sure that’s understood no matter where your content appears,” the company said of the new feature.

The feature shows Instagram continuing to compete with Twitter, which began last year to allow tweet “cards” to be embedded.
