It was a trend started off by Twitter which declared that you have “arrived” and are celebrity enough to be verified – a neat tick mark against your name to assert that YOU are indeed authentic and that all the other Twitter accounts out there with your name and picture, are indeed fake.
Now, Facebook has decided to go the same way and among the first few stars to get a tick mark on her official Facebook page is hottie Deepika Padukone.
This move (on the part of Facebook) will help in eliminating the fake Deepika Padukone pages and aid people to zone in to her authentic account. Some of the other stars who have so far been verified by Facebook are Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar and Priyanka Chopra.
