Some of you may be following my other thread- where I describe I am creating about two dozen local Pages on facebook. They are each getting to the 10K threshold, and I am starting to freak out that they won't be successfully validated. I understand at 10K fans, Facebook asks you to verify the page and you can do this by putting a badge or widget on your blog/site. A few questions: 1. What was your experience with this? Did you get validated and maintain publishing rights? Or did you get restricted? What was the process like? 2. I have about 30 such Pages. One for each city. The page is generic "I heart CITY". I am concerned that FB seems to not verify/validate pages that are generic in nature. Must I create a site or blog (or subpage to my larger local site) that uses this terminology to help my chances of passing? Any thoughts/comments welcome - please feed or alleviate my paranoia depending on whatever the reality is.
