Facebook has announced a new “verified Pages” feature.

Basically… an authentication system to help Facebook users make sure the celebrity or business page they are viewing is “real.”

For now it’s just being launched to a select group of celebrities and high profile businesses.

I’m sure, it will eventually find its way to the rest of us.


Mobile Update…

Mary Meeker pulled back the curtain on her recent Internet Trends report.

A few key points…

1- 2.4 Billion Internet Users World-Wide. That’s up 8% over the previous year.

2- There are more than 5 Billion people who have Mobile Phones. About 1.5 Billion of those are Smartphones. That’s up from 1.1 Billion the previous year.

3- Mobile Web Traffic…

15% of ALL web traffic is now coming from mobile. That’s up from 10% the previous year.

You can make the assumption that 15% off all visitors to your website are coming from a tablet or a smartphone. Your site analytics can reveal the exact number.

The question is how well does your site display on mobile devices? Is it “responsive?”

Feel free to run it through our 48 Point Inspection to see how it does on mobile…
