It provides several features for various kinds of organizations to utilize for the purpose of improving brand identity. Over the past years, Facebook has given business owners the opportunity to verify their accounts and have access to additional features the platform provides.

Facebook founder, Mark Zukerberg had made it known that developers can now manage apps, WhatsApp cloud API, and domains right from the manager account. He further stressed why retailers and publishers should link their properties in a single manager account.

Why Meta Business Manger?

In 2017 Facebook introduced the “Page Transparency” button on Facebook pages thereby allowing users or customers to get further information about the business managing the page, the History of a page name, the country from which the page is managed, and the Ads Library.

Once a business is verified, Facebook displays “This is a person or organization that has completed our verification process and claimed responsibility for the page” although this information is not available for all pages. Depending on the page’s relevance Facebook may display it or may not.

This feature helps in building brand reputation, trust, and engagement, survey confirmed that 45% of verified business owners drive sales 2x more than unverified businesses.
