Users do not have the permission to request for verification instead the social network itself will decide the accounts that need verification. Users when asked to verify their profiles will have to submit a photo identity issued by the government that will be deleted after the verification process. They can also enter a nickname that will be displayed within parenthesis adjacent to their real name.
