Google+ Verified Profiles for Celebrities, Public Figures

Google+ is now rolling out Google+ verified profiles with verification badges for public figures, celebrities, and people added to a large number of Circles. Though Google+ is still planning to develop a way to extend this to the public at large, if you are in enough Google+ circles, you might get a verified Google+ profile soon.

A new tick icon is appearing besides Google+ verified profiles, and if you move your mouse over the tick, it expands to reveal Verified name. I see a lot of top bloggers, Googlers, celebrities have already got the verified badge. Much like verified Twitter profiles, people are more comfortable adding a real celebrity, who has been verified, rather than adding  a fake celebrity fan account.

How can you get a verified Google+ profile? – as of now, if you are popular enough, in thousands of Google+ circles, chances are Google will verify you faster.

    Glad to hear that Google+ is adopting the same concept as Twitter and I believe this is the right move for Google+ to stay firm in social network.
