Once you put basic information of profile, put your birthday and set your tweet as public. Visit the verification form on Twitter and fill it asking Twitter for consideration as a verified user.

Go to the settings on Facebook website or app from the general menu, click Page verification selection. Click on Verify this page, then get started.

Facebook offers two modes of the verification process. The first one is instant and the second one is a more detailed one. For the Instant process, you just need to give Facebook permission of calling your phone number that is listed on your page. They will send an OTP. Enter the OTP and then you are done.

If you chose the more detailed option, you will need to click on Verify this Page with documents instead. Facebook will ask you to upload the official documents and photos that have the name of your business’s name and address.

Once Facebook receives your validation, they will review it. They will then confirm if your request has been denied or approved.
