Google announced that they are starting to roll out verification badges on Google Plus profiles. This is very similar to what Twitter has done with their verified account.
The verification badge is displayed next to the profile name on Google Plus. It’s a small little grey checkmark. When you mouse over the checkmark, it shows the word “verified name”.
Google is currently verifying celebrity, public figure and people who have been added to a large number of Circles.
I wonder if I qualify to get a verified badge. Hmmmm…. maybe not. I only got 370+ people who added me to a circle. Sigh.
