Google Plus started verifying Celebrity Accounts and will extend this service to popular users
Google Plus started verifing profiles of Celebrity Accounts. Now you do not have to worry about whether you added any celebrity to your circle is actually his own account. You can check it easly by looking checkmark next to the user’s name. Click the User’s profile page to find out whether the account actually represents the famous celebrity in question.
Google will not only verify rich, famous and public figure’s account but also the common users like you and me if we are popular Google Plus user. They will soon ask you whether you like to verify your account.
Wen-Ai, Google Plus Team Member, said that “For now, we’re focused on verifying public figures, celebrities, and people who have been added to a large number of Circles,but keep in mind that this is just the beginning. We’re working on expanding this to include more people in the future, so hang tight!” So friends if you are popular Google Plus user check your inbox regularly.
Google has not disclosed yet its criteria required for warranting a verified account.
We should try to understand if the system is complex – there will be people trying to abuse it. Google could benchmark their account work on a simpler bank system, like this example.
