I use an acronym for mine as well. I however, don't give a crap if they cancel my account. Facebook, is just a place where I go anyway to view the posts of people out there who have a worse life than mine...makes my day a little better. I also get to witness feats of great stupidity and get to be "friends" with 100 thousand friends that don't know me from Adam. That said, I would not miss it a bit if my account were cancelled. If they wanted a photo ID.......yeah right. Everything I say on there is for the most part a lie anyway...just little gift to a platform of data mining and spying on free Americans. I give them a pile of Sh*t to mine through, one that they will never find a diamond in....just shoveling Sh*t all day for nothing. Nice to meet you FB, you've probably spent hours trying to get to know me, yet you know nothing but the Sh*t that I wanted you to know. Note to FB....a lot of people do this to you, I have other FB accounts as well, that I don't even look at that are created with fake photos, fake names, fake conversations and other.....just so that your servers are full of lies. Burn FB.

I logged in just so I could say something to you on this thread. If it was me... I would send them a picture of my butt with me flipping the bird at the same time right next to it.

I think the reality is that all FB did was beat out MySpace. It does have a better format and my space would get overloaded with bizarre wallpaper, music playing when the page opens etc.

Just use a fake ID.

Or an image of a real one some random person uploaded to the internet.

I had this happen to me also. I made a fake account years ago to play games on (I didn't want to pester people I actually know with game requests), under a fake name. I tried to log in one day and was told my account was suspended and I'd have to 'prove' I was who I said I was with some sort of proof such as a photo ID.

Your complaining that you cant get onto Facebook without having to supply a photo ID? and yet you say in your OP that you know its a CIA funded social network?
Whats wrong with you? You WANT TO be monitored? You probably hate the CIA for hacking into everything but FFS you still ask if anyone else has had this issue, don't even bother with facebook or any other social network, they're all monitored anyway. so simply ditch it and if you want to socialise pick up the phone or go out and talk to people.
Don't follow trends, set them instead. You lived without these crappy apps a few years ago, why jump on the drone bandwagon now?. Get a life.

I didn't read one word of this thread outside of the title.

Why is it a big deal to fork over your ID or drivers license when you Fedbook users blast pictures of yourself all over the internet anyway? You know facial recognition software is used by fedbook? ZuckerAss is also complicit with PRISM, so whats the big hangup with a picture id to verify you are who you are?

Just sayin'. Kind of recursive reasoning when your picture exists forever in the archives already.

First, Facebook is a data collection tool - don't use it. Second, to circumvent their rules and allow yourself to use whatever fictitious name you wish - open a BUSINESS account instead of a personal account.

Abandon the acct. and never start a new one is my best advice.

The same thing happened to me. But the thing is, you DON'T have to provide ID.. it's just that at the same time they don't HAVE to let you use their service, you know? I know it's unfair and annoying and stupid and pointless but it is what it is.

Personally the only thing that pisses me off is that I had pictures with my friends that are ONLY on my Facebook account, and when I was banned I lost them forever.

Anyway it's a common tactic by trolls to Report someone's account for being "a fake account". Facebook can take you down until you prove yourself, unfortunately. That's probably what happened to you. But as long as you know that, you can fight fire with fire.

They can't stop you from making and building up new accounts.

Facebook is a private company and can request anything they want from you. As their patron you can play by their rules, or not use their service.

Interesting, that doesnt seem to apply for all businesses.
Where or why do we draw the line?

I've never used Facebook. I tell everyone who wants to be my friend to call me. I only know that the Facebook app on an Android will quickly drain the battery.

FB is a tool - a kind of curtained, global identity purveyor that seeks as much about every single person as they can get their hands on. Where that data goes is anyone's guess... but regardless, it can't be anywhere anyone I would want mine to go.

Dropped out of FB four years ago when they began deleting my comments at the ESPN football scoreboard. Their reason? I refused to surrender my physical address and phone number.

Don't miss 'em a bit.

Ladies and Gentlment,

The social network and CIA data-mining operation we all call "Facebook" has taken it to a new level in my books. I would appreciate it if anyone else who has encountered similar situation could offer some advise.

1. I use an acronym for my surname on Facebook. This is to keep people from finding me or requesting to be friends that I dont want. I have my own little social circle of friends and thats it.

2. a Month ago Facebook closed my account and requested I changed my screen name to my proper I just added an extra letter to my acronym I use instead of my surname and they let me back on.

3. This morning my account closed and I received this message:
Screen Shot of Facebook request

In order to proceed then next screen asks you to upload a file copy of your identification in order for Facebook to verify who you are.

Why? Why does Facebook have to verify who I am? I am not doing anything illegal or wrong.

I have been pretty active and vocal on various Facebook discussion groups and News Media Facebook pages the last 2 days in regards to the "911 - dont beleive the official story" kind of topics. So Im wondering if I have been reported or something.

Anyway, I beleive having to provide my identification is WRONG, UNWARRANTED, and an INVASION ON MY PERSONAL RIGHTS.

Facebook is not a Banking organisation, I am not trying to get a loan, it is not a Police Law Enforcement Agency and I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PROVE WHO I AM.

Thats like ATS requesting all members submit a Photo ID to verify they are real people behind the made-up is just unjust.

4. Anyway, instead of uploading a photo I.D, I wrote a letter and saved it as an image file and uploaded the following instead:

Dear Facebook,
The request by yourself for me to upload proof of my identity in order for me to access my Facebook account again , I beleive is an infringement on my individual rights, and my right to use a different surname in order to protect myself somewhat from all the trolls out there.

I have not caused any issues on Facebook and Facebook is not a Banking Institution or a Law Enforcement Organisation where proof of my identification is required. I am not a terrorist or a threat to anyone in anyway, and therefore I dont beleive that I should have to submit to this request.

So unless you can prove otherwise, and can justify your request for me to submit identification, I beleive your request is invalid, it is an infringement, and an unreasonable request. I know of many people out there not using their real names and have never been questioned about this.

If this has anything to do with any political posts I may have made, shared, or commented on, that are against the grain of public opinion or what society has been led to beleive is true, then please state so, man-up, and call it what it is. I would appreciate it if a Facebook representative could contact me on my email address with a phone number so we could discuss this in person. else Mark Zuckerberg and his CIA "data-mining"accomplices can go and suck on a fresh one!

As my little protest to their request.

Would appreciate any advice and opinions on this matter....has anyone else encountered similar?

Here's an idea:


Make a business account for whatever name you like.

Make the business. Use it for all types of shizuoka. Except biz.
