Verifying ownership of your domain in Facebook Business Manager

Domain Verification provides a way for you to 'claim' ownership of your domain in Facebook Business Manager. This is important to protect your content on Facebook and to gain access to features related to your domain and tracking.

The integrity of content on Facebook is a serious concern, and domain verification is a step towards ensuring that only verified owners can edit the way their content appears on Facebook. Many publishing apps use link editing to customize and create engaging content for the Facebook community. In an effort to preserve this essential functionality in a way that protects the integrity of publishers' content, verified link owners will now have the ability to overwrite link metadata when creating link page posts.

Below are the steps in verifying ownership of your domain in Facebook Business Manager.
