Facebook is Removing Grey Badges on October 30

Written by

Facebook is now starting to notify verified Facebook Pages with grey badges. It means facebook will no longer support these types of verification to all pages. Instead, pages must work hard to get a blue badge verification.

Admin of pages will receive a red notification from their page saying “Grey badges will be removed on 30 October”.

With the message containing:

Hi Erwin,

We’re always working on better ways to help people understand more about the Pages they interact with. We introduced grey verification badges in 2015 to show which Pages for businesses and organisations are authentic.

However, we’ve found that they can be more confusing than helpful, so we’re removing them on 30 October. As a result, there will no longer be a grey badge on GamingPH. This won’t impact the way the Page appears in search results.

To learn more about how to help people find a Page and verify that it’s real, please go to our best practices.
