Facebook verifies Awami League page

Popular social networking site Facebook has recently verified the official page of Bangladesh Awami League.

A Facebook verification sign, a ‘blue tick mark’, came to be visible beside the page name.


More than 1 lakh fans liked the official Facebook page of the ruling party.

Bangladesh Awami League posts its official notifications and press releases on the page.

This is the third Bangladeshi page that’s recognised by Facebook. Last year it had verified Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s son Sajeeb Wazed Joy’s fan page. Bangla daily Prothom Alo’s page was also verified in last month.

Facebook’s Verified Pages are designed for celebrities, high-profile people and businesses with authentic accounts.
