Ask.fm is a social networking site where users create profiles and can send each other questions. Accounts that have been verified by Ask.fm have a blue verified badge on their account profile. Being verified on Ask.fm proves that the account belongs to you. This verification gives your account a better impression from the viewer. You don’t need to have celebrity status, you need to meet a few parameters inorder to have your profile authenticated.
There are a few requirements that you have to meet before you can be verified on Ask.fm.
Make sure that it’s clear that your account belongs to a real person. If it’s a possibility that you’re account is a fake account, then you won’t be accepted. You can avoid this by linking your other social media accounts to your Ask.fm, putting a profile picture, and have some form of popularity that might legitimize your account.
You need to have a certain level of participation in the app to be verified. This means that you have to ask and answer questions on a daily basis. Although this may seem like a lot, a verified account needs to be one that’s more active than the usual account. Although this may seem like a lot, this is actually normal since there’s a certain engagement that comes with having a verified account. Once you have one, you might gain more followers and to keep them, you need to continue to keep posting content. Ensure that you meet this requirement since this is one that should be the baseline for getting your account verified.
- Good behaviour
You will be more likely to get verified if you’ve been behaving well. Your account shouldn’t promote hate speech or bullying. If you haven’t been answering and asking questions nicely and behaving well to other members. If you find that you might have engaged in some rough interactions with other members than you shouldn’t expect your account to be verified. The purpose of Ask.fm isn’t to promote bullying or hate speech, they wont verify you if your account doesn’t align with the values of the social media site.
