Flipboard is one of the most popular news aggregators and social network aggregation sites in the world. Therefore, having your profile verified is a big plus more so if you are a publisher. A verified badge is a red check that appears on a Flipboard account profile. It means Flipboard has confirmed that an account is the authentic presence of the publisher, public figure, celebrity, or the brand it represents. An account may be verified if it is determined to be an account of public interest.
Typically this includes accounts maintained by those in media, journalism, music, entertainment, government, politics, sports, business, and other key interest areas. The verified checkmark on Flipboard signifies an account of a public interest that’s authentic. A verified checkmark tells the world that an account belonging to a person, publication or brand is who they say they are and has been verified by the Flipboard team. It also represents quality content and curation.
