I am not very sophisticated when it comes to social networking. I have had a facebook acct for years - I do not use my real name or date of birth, rather a nickname.

I log in about once a week, and today I found I cannot log in and Facebook wants me to submit a photo ID to unlock my account????

I have never heard of such a thing, I guess it's goodbye facebook.

Is this new? am I retarded?

DO NOT give them your personal ID.
EVER.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 1:52:02 AM EDT
Never heard of it. Did you change the name on the account recently? Try doing the forgot password reset feature?
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 1:53:17 AM EDT
Easy solution. Don't.

Check the URL just in case you're getting phished.

Edit: Looks like genuine Facebook does use photo ID verification if you don't have a mobile number associated with your account.

If you feel that strongly about it, Open a different account

ID required for Facebook but not to vote in this country. Makes sense.

Link Posted: 7/2/2015 2:24:43 AM EDT
Someone reported your account as fake.

Show ID, or say bye to Facebook.

Make sure the URL is actually Facebook.

No. Possibly.

It is very easy to make an anonymous FB account. Just get a free web based email address and go from there.

Well yeah, since Facebook is probably the number one data collection tool for just about every alphabet agency.

They locked my account claiming I'm not using my real name (which I'm not) and made me change it.

I did, to something ridiculous. I'm guessing I will get asked for my ID next.

Fuck Facebook!

I suppose face book is also trying to weed out the what 70% accounts that are fake.

I mean only Obama and Hillary, Bush and their ilk can get those.

If someone tags your account as not being your real name, they will lock it down until you confirm.

my new facebook name will be Mohammed Smith.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 8:39:05 AM EDT
Really? I know they changed some of their stuff, but that's weird. I'd never give them my ID.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 8:48:59 AM EDT
I deleted my Facebook account in January. Recently, I started one with a nickname. I got the same message. They want I.D. and my phone number. Nope.

I had that happen to me a few years ago to my Don Keypunch account. I just told em to eat my dick and opened another account with a different email. I still don't use my real name.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 10:11:20 AM EDT
Never had a Facebook account. Every time I start to think I should start one, I see something like this.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 10:17:41 AM EDT
Same happened to one of my friends, he used his company name instead of his real name.
They made him start a new account.

Too many people will gladly give it to them. Its fucking retarded.

If they really want to ensure only real people are on it , just charge for FB. Plenty of fucktards would pay 20 a month for it.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 11:30:04 AM EDT
They've been doing this for a while on suspicious accounts, it's not new.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 11:32:12 AM EDT
In the fine print you agree to when you make an FB account you agree to only use only your real information. If they suspect that you are using a fake name they will lock down your account until you prove your identity. They can't make money off fake information.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 11:33:39 AM EDT
You have 2 choices.

I would not use one of those freely available apps to generate a fake ID for that name you used. The Facebook folks wouldn't like that.

So you have to show a photo ID to use Facebook, but not to vote...got it.

You have to show a photo ID if they think your user name is fake.
If your user name is anywhere near reasonable, they won't notice.

I didn't know someone's account could be flagged by other users. That sounds ripe for abuse.

Or for getting rid of stupid names like "Tony StraightBallin Smith" and "Katrina YOLOSWAG BeautifulDisaster Johnson".
