I rarely enter my facebook account because I only created it to follow some sellers and well, I also added a few friends later.
Few days ago, I tried to enter my facebook account. I've always needed to write my email and password to enter.
But this time Facebook started to ask for my real name. I wrote my name and my first surname (in my country we have TWO surnames, dad's and mom's surname). They didn't validate what I wrote and blocked my facebook account because they thought I was lying or something...
The question is: why they even started to ask for my full name like if they were trying to verficate my true identity if I only used to write my email and pass to enter? The only reason I could came up with is that perhaps someone thought that I wasn't the real account owner (?) (I dunno but I'm aware that a lot of people report art submitted without permission around facebook because I've received a lot of notes about people telling me "hey, this dude submited on facebook your pictures without your permission")
OK, I received a facebook team's email today where they asked my national ID card photocopy, so I was like:
I wrote them that I prefer my facebook account suspended before giving a photocopy of my real national ID card to a company that sells our personal data to certain companies that I don't support and even to some countries that I don't personally like at all (few of them are countries that live under "dictatorships", I already saw this on News several times). If you read their Terms and Conditions you can basically conclude that they have the right to do whatever they want with your photos and data (you supposedly agree with all this when you create your facebook account). They can earn money from your pictures and personal data without your permission whenever they want. I'm so glad I only had a profile photo and few fanarts, but NO photo about my friends, family, etc.
I'm aware that they have some basic data of mine like my name, email, country and birthday, but lol, c'mon our national ID card has our parents names, our address, our telephone, our real sign and a lot of numbers behind that I'm not gonna give to facebook... I prefer that account suspended before giving them a photocopy of my national ID card just to verify my identity, I mean, Who the hell are they? a bank? the police? or what's wrong here? Other websites have a lot of alternative ways/systems to verify that you are the real owner of your account XD
I don't know if they are going to open my account or not eventually, but if they don't do it, I don't care at all NEVER give to a social network company a photocopy of your NIF or TOO personal data because the fact that a social network company needs that kind of info says A LOT about it. We are controlled to a greater extent than we think...
What else can I add? pfff... Can I resign from the human race now?, I wish I could move to another planet X'D
how come this happen to you? well, for sharing your art work on fb, it is true, I've seen your work and I took and share it but I didnt say it is made by me, Im not a theaf LOL, but when I knew it was from deviant art user, I deleted it because I know how it feels when you see your work somewhere and nobody asks your permission or gives a credit at least. but it is weird that fb asks you for your real name, try to create a fake name that make sense to the facebook owners that has first and last. you can use "Hinata Hyuga" I did mine "Tifa Uchiha". and you can also write the reall information of you, but you can hide them, because facebook gives the option of privacy. I hope I helped here
I don't use my real surname, birthday nor e-mail with my name in it because of this, but I haven't had any problems though (or yet, that is).
Similar thing happened to me with google when I tried to log in in my gmail (the one with real name). They wanted me to verify my identity by sending them copy of my id, to give them my bank account number so they can make a small transaction or to give them my cell phone number so they can send me some code. I somehow managed to get my account back, but now I have everything backed up and I don't think I will be coming back if they do something like this again.
Well, I guess it's true that you are the product being sold when using those free services :/
This is ridiculous. And to think, millions of people are posting almost their whole address and basically their whole family album. I have a FB account but I'm NEVER posting any personal pics or too much info. Some people think that this privacy thing is stupid, but they're very wrong. Very.
I had to do that, and I went through with the verification (used an old school ID) so I could manage the FB page of a non-profit for which I volunteer. As soon as I'm finished with the non-profit, I'm done with this site. I feel as though I've given up enough, already.
