Google+ now has verified badges for celebrities, network power users who have loads of followers and other public figures. Do you have a verified badge yet? The use, or lack thereof, of common names on Google+ isn’t the only identity crisis the social network faces. There’s also the issue of verifying whether Google+ profiles have really been created by celebrities or are simply forgeries from people hoping for a laugh. To solve this issue, Google has started rolling out verification badges for profiles so that users are certain they’re adding the right +Dolly Parton, +Ashton Kutcher or some other celebrity to their Google+ Circles.
