Facebook Account Deactivated

Facebook Account Deactivated, I returned house from a beautiful afternoon walk with Ryland to find my Mac asking me to log in to Facebook. Amusing I believed, as I never ever usually log out. I tried to log in just to be greeted by 'Account Handicapped'.

Facebook Account Deactivated

I clicked through to see why:

Phony accounts are a violation of our Declaration of Rights and Obligations. All accounts need to follow the following policies:

  • You must provide your genuine first name and last name. Impersonating anyone or anything is forbidden.

  • You are not allowed to develop multiple accounts that exist entirely for the use of Facebook Platform applications.

  • It is an offense of Facebook policy to keep more than one account on the site.

  • Profiles (timelines) produced to represent celebrities, family pets, ideas, or inanimate objects are strictly forbidden.

  • Profiles (timelines) produced for the purpose of spamming or pestering others are strictly forbidden.

People on Facebook want to engage with their real friends and the people they understand in the real life. Because fake accounts can damage the stability of this environment, they are not permitted to stay on the site.

It seems that finally Facebook are actially beginning to implement their policy about multiple accounts and fake profile names. The problem is-- my name Di Coke is real, and I only have one Facebook account! And it's not the abbreviation that's the concern, as their policy states: Nicknames can be used as a first or middle name if they're a variation of your real first or surname (like Bob rather of Robert).

So what taken place? Well, I believe it is among 2 things-- either someone has actually reported my account as being fake, or Facebook are having a clampdown on the usage of trademark name. In either case, I deserved a caution initially, before they disabled my account and took down my SuperLucky fan page. In addition to that, I cannot access the four pages I'm an Administrator on-- and nobody is able to contact me via Facebook. As a Blogger and Social Network Manager, this is a significant blow. It's been three hours because they disabled my account and I hope this is sorted ASAP. Until then, if you need to, you can contact me via Twitter or email.

And to those of you reading this who have two Facebook accounts or use comping nicknames-- take this as a caution! If your account gets handicapped you'll need to publish ID showing your genuine name to reactivate it, and I don't think a lot of you have passports with the name 'Lucky MSE Turnips' on do you?! And one more thing please don’t forget to share this awesome trick to use the Facebook Account Deactivated with your friends.
