How To Get Your Personal Instagram Account Verified
Instagram is one of the most popular social networks in the world and a great avenue for connecting celebrities to their fans.
Like many other social networks, official accounts owned by celebrities and other public figures are verified with a blue check to show that the accounts belong to the celebrities.
Before now, people were paying as much as $900 to get their accounts verified, though that wasn't organized by the Instagram corporation. In most cases, paying such huge amount of money doesn't give you a 100% assurance that you'd be verified, and in such cases you might end-up losing your money.
One of the importance of verifying your Instagram account is to prevent scammers and impersonators from using other account to defraud the public. Many people create duplicate accounts and use them for sharing photos and videos for the purpose of scamming other individuals.
For this reason, many social networks like Twitter and Facebook started awarding a blue checks to official accounts. Apart from the regular blue checks, Facebook also gives grey checks to official business pages. In that case,you'll  need to verify your address.
