FAQ: Facebook Domain Verification.

Answers to the most frequently asked questions about the Facebook Link Ownership tool.

Domain Verification provides a way for you to claim ownership of your domain in Business Manager. This ownership allows you to control editing privileges of your links and other content to prevent misuse of your domain and to keep bad actors from spreading misinformation.

Q: Who is Domain Verification for?
A: Domain Verification is the best way to handle ownership if:

  • You have a larger number of Pages that are difficult to maintain manually via Open Graph markup tags
  • You have adopted or have the ability to adopt Business Manager to manage your assets
  • You have the ability to upload HTML files to the web root directory or the ability to edit DNS TXT records
  • You can edit Link Page Posts that link to content you own—ownership will eventually serve as a means to determine who has access to link editing

Q: If I don't verify my domain, will Facebook take away my link editing privileges? 
A: Facebook wants content owners to have the ability to edit the content of their link posts. Facebook also wants to protect the integrity of your content to make sure it isn't being misrepresented. In early Q1 2018, Facebook will only allow verified domain owners to edit their link posts, so it is important to verify your domains if you want to retain ability. 

Q. Will the Open Graph markup tag verification method and DNS TXT/HTML File Upload verification methods all coexist for the foreseeable future? 
A: Yes. 

Q: Can I share my domain with a partner Business Manager? 
A: Yes. For more information please click here
