The VKontakte team has made a convenient innovation for users of the social network – the verification check mark, which confirms the authenticity of the account, has become permanent.
Now, creators and communities no longer have to submit a new application every year to keep the “tick”. The VKontakte team will automatically evaluate verified profiles and communities according to several basic criteria, including activity on the social network, the presence of a user’s picture, the number of subscribers and new entries.
These criteria are also analyzed during the initial verification. If, upon verification, it turns out that the page does not meet any of the requirements, the author or community owners will be informed so that the situation can be corrected.
It is also noted that over time, it may be necessary to update the questionnaire and documents. In this case, the user or the community team will have a month to sort out the situation, during which the verification checkmark will remain in place.
