Default FB has banned my current account...

To those of you that do not know, FaceBook has been demanding real names and proof of those real names for a few years now,

I finally got caught, under the completely false name of "Darryl Draygoes Johoson" because I really do not care for too many people to know my real name.

In the next few days, if this problem has not been fixed, I will be creating a new account. I will let you know the name, as I am trying to get all of my contacts back. For now, lets see if they accept a picture of a middle finger as my ID, because they are NOT getting anything else.

Short version: FB has banned me for using a name that was false, and they demand my real name. Not happening. Several of you already know my real name, but that is why you cannot contact me.

I think they have a new algorithm to do this... I got a notice about this a couple of weeks ago demanding the same info - funny thing is that my FB account has my real name.

My take on this is that if you don't want to provide your real name as FB requires you to, then simply stop using FB and find a different social network. Why buck their system?

Would somewhat ruin the point of Facebook for me if everyone used false names. It's great for getting in touch with friends you haven't seen for ages. Indeed, my Dad joined Facebook not too long ago, and he found lots of people on there who he hadn't seen for 20+years!

I have never given my real name to facebook, I find the people I want to and let them know who I am in a message. I don't want old acquaintances I never really liked looking me up.

If you do a google search for my real name, the entire first 2 pages are about me. I really need bring my internet presence down a notch. I use my real name on facebook, though. I can understand why they'd want to enforce it.

When I got married my wife changed her name on facebook and they asked for proof of ID, documents like passport of other government issued ID confirming her real name, utility bills etc.

she sent them a photo of herself in a wedding dress and they changed it.

I sent them a pic of a middle finger, but I guess that is not the point eh?

Exactly my point. The only people that I wish to find me are people that are current, and they know how to contact me. Besides a few people on this forum, I prefer to hide.

How did they find out "Darryl Draygoes Johoson" is fake? Is it because it sounds fake? I know they ask for your cellphone number and email, but at what point do they start asking for ID? is this a new policy?

Also,how do people always have mutiple acconts ? is it because they have muliple cellphones and numbers?

Woah, you got banned? I wonder why you're not active there anymore.

I use my real name and when I tried to change it to Smart Guy they just refused without asking for anything. Even when I first registered, nothing bothered me about a proof.

I do not have multiple accounts, and I really do not know. But after all of this time, they are still keeping me banned, so I guess I will have no choice but to create a new account.

The did start asking for ID's a couple of years ago (not sure when), but they had never questioned my account until this point.

I am sorry for not telling you sooner, but it happened with no real reason. I do not have an ID to give them, and that is not going to happen even when I get my ID back. You are one of many contacts that I was looking for. BTW, where is BikerEcho? I need his info as well.

Well things happen and that's quiet understandable. Don't worry about B.E. for now, come back to the scene and things will managed to get back to normal in no time.

I have now signed up for the new fb account. I guess you can find me here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100011798762267

I may be wrong because it has been years and I try to not break any rules. Creating a new account is one of the major ones for me or anyone else that runs a forum, but that is not... what I would call a decent forum.

Anyway, if you want to add me or even find out where I am, I litterally am "Jerry Don". It has been done.

You can easily get your account banned by FB if you had suspicious activity such as logging in another IP
