Had a notice on the side of my Facebook page to verify it. They call you at your business phone, you enter the code they give.

Did all of that and got a message back saying the verification didn't work. WTH?

The other option is to send documentation like a phone bill or your TIN. 

Has anyone verified their biz page? Does it make a difference? The message is gone now so I'd have to search for it to try again.

think we had to do it - not sure but think it opened up more features as they were sure you were who you said you were plus legit - long time ago mind

Had no trouble verifying our business via the phone ... sorry, no suggestions to offer.

Yes, I did this a couple of months ago and the same thing happened.  I figured it was because our phone number is listed under our name, rather than the inn.  So I just scanned a copy of our license and submitted it to them.  We were verified a few days later.

Maybe. I just didn't want to give them any paper trail with licensing numbers. I'd have to look at how the bill is addressed.

are you sure it isn't a spammer? I do several business FB pages and I have gotten nothing!

The directions, right from FB:

To verify your Page:

    Click Settings at the top of your Page.
    From General, click Page Verification.
    Click Verify this Page, then click Get Started.
    Enter a publicly listed phone number for your business, your country and language.
    Click Call Me Now to allow Facebook to call you with a verification code.

It's in the helpful tips section. The phone call comes from Palo Alto, altho that can be spammed. Interesting - the phone number shows up on a list of spam phone calls but half the posters are saying it's a legit call from Facebook as they have alerts set up to let them know when their account is accessed.

The other half say they never asked for any such phone calls.

Tried it again from the laptop thinking maybe the tablet wasn't 'connecting' with FB as I cannot make comments when I'm on the tablet. (Saves me so much grief!)

Nope. Cannot verify this phone number belongs to this business. Even tho if I enter the phone number in Google my biz pops right up. Oh well.

Have not seen it.   Face book is scary.
