Facebook Anniversary Badges Introduced After Success Of Top Fans


Facebook has been slowly adding user badges across its platform, beginning with Top Fan badges late last year. Since then, mostly in groups, the social media platform has added badges for New Member, Rising Star, Conversation Starter, Link Curator, Founding Member, Admin and Moderator, and more.

Pages have been limited to Top Fan badges … until now. Facebook has launched the Anniversary Follower badge which will let others see how many years you’ve been following any page. It appears above your name in the comments as a Top Fan badge would, and reads “Anniversary Follower” with a number to the left denoting how many years you’ve been following.

Not only is this a great way for brands and pages to recognize their most loyal and long-lasting followers (and perhaps reward them), it will also surely spark some debate in the comments about how much of a fan someone is compared to another.

You don’t have to do anything to enable the Facebook anniversary badges. It’s being rolled out to Facebook users right now; if you don’t see it yet, be patient and you’ll see it soon enough. See examples below.
