Mohanlal becomes the 1st South Indian actor to get his Facebook page verified
Facebook has been 'verifying' genuine pages last year. It was recently that they started giving a 'blue tick' just like twitter has been doing from the beginning to such verified pages. [FB also recently introduced hash tags which was one of twitter's USPs]. Malayalam actor Mohanlal has become the first South Indian to get his official facebook page get verified like this.
It was exactly one year back that Mohanlal & his team started his official facebook page, to sommunicate with his fans, because a lot of fake accounts were started under his name. Soon the page immense response from the fans that Facebook India officials took notice and decided to take care of his account once it was prooved that the page was indeed official. They then merged all those fake accounts into the official one.
Mohanlal's account is one of the first Malayali (if not the first) FB page to be monitored & publicized by Facebook India. The officials also took his interview [or rather an intro to FB] and posted it in their official page. Pages of Big B, Salman Khan, Sachin Tendulkar etc are also being maintained by FB like this.
The page also crossed 8 lakh likes today, another milestone for the Facebook page.
