TORONTO, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Keek, the leading mobile social video network, announced today the launch of its new account verification program to meet increased demand from many high-profile celebrities and influencers. Keek will begin marking select accounts with a verified symbol to help individuals and businesses at high risk of impersonation authenticate their identity.
The Keek community is growing rapidly with millions of people signing up each month. The verified icon will help establish trust and make it easier for users to find people and content on Keek.
"Keek is a fun new way to interact with my fans and I really can't believe how fast it's grown," says Kim Kardashian. "Account verification is extremely important. I want to make sure my fans know it's really me they are following.
