Facebook asking locked out users to provide Government ID

If you have opened Twitter today you may have noticed an increase in messages reporting that the social media site Facebook was asking them to provide a Government ID to unlock their account on the site.

The message that users received during log in to their Facebook account states the following: "For security reasons your account is temporarily locked. If this account reflects your real name and personal information, please help us verify it".

The user who has been temporarily locked out of the account is then asked to provide a government ID for verification.

Facebook itself has not published a public comment yet and it is unclear if the company will address the issue at all.

Facebook Government ID

Facebook's Help page provides further information about the practice:

If you can't verify your account using your mobile number, you'll need to provide a copy of your photo ID. This could be a scanned copy or a close-up photo you've taken.

Upload a photo ID

How to upload your ID

  • Optional: Cover up any confidential information (ex: license or passport number)
  • Scan or take a picture of your ID with your digital camera
  • Make sure you can clearly see your name, birthday and photo
  • Save the photo to your desktop
  • Click the button below and follow the instructions to upload your ID

This is my government issued ID. I understand I won't get help with my account if I haven't uploaded a valid ID.

The very same page lists the types of IDs that Facebook accepts:

  • Birth certificate
  • Driver's license
  • Passport
  • Marriage certificate
  • Official Name change paperwork
  • Personal or vehicle insurance card
  • Non-driver's government ID
  • Green card, residence permit or immigration papers
  • Social Security Card
  • Voter ID Card

In addition, Facebook will also accept any of the two following items that must show the name and date of birth of the locked out Facebook user.

  • Bank statement
  • Bus card
  • Check
  • Credit Card
  • Employment verification
  • Library card
  • Mail
  • Magazine subscription stub
  • Medical record
  • Membership IDs
  • Paycheck stub
  • Permit
  • School card
  • School record
  • Utility bill
  • Yearbook photo

The company notes that data that has been uploaded to Facebook as part of the verification process will be deleted after the verification.

The mass lock-out of users is not the first on Facebook. The most recent lock-out that requested users to provide Facebook with IDs to unlock the account again happened in January of this year. The company back then stated that it may ask users for photo IDs depending on the violation that occurred.

Common violations where this may be the case are accounts where either the name or birth date do not match or exist at all (for instance if a nickname is being used), and maybe also at times to verify account ownership after a hacking attempt.

The only two options that locked out Facebook users have is to either comply with the request and transfer a picture of a photo ID to Facebook, or stop using the site altogether.

    I’ll stop using altogether. I’m amazed as many people use this site as they do.

      I am absolutely shocked — in that I (along with 1 million of my friends) did not know about this “procedure” on compromised account until 3 days ago, November 21, 2013. I am bewildered at the very fact that Facebook has the incompetent audacity and, what clearly appears to be roguelike quasi-criminal enablers to issue this illegal FB MANDATORY REQUEST FOR OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT ID for verification of an account holder. No joke, what this really is and seriously I am not kidding, is Facebook Ransomware. Except in this case, as opposed to the FBI Ransomware (interesting they both have FB’s), FB will hold your account hostage and close it, if you do not comply with sending into cyberspace and beyond, your official government id, passport, drivers licenst, birth certificate to them so they can “verify” that the account holder is you. Not only is this absolutely ludicrous in every sense of their request, it also smacks of the very warnings of phishing and ransomware. How ironic is this that Facebook is asking for your personal identity documents to secure your account, especially after your page has been hacked, to “verify” you are who you are. Can someone explain this procedure to me? Really, is an employee clerk at FB going to review say 100,000 government ids from e-mail, and then compare the picture and name against the pictures and name on the account w/ FB?

      This is so unreal I literally thought it was part of the hack. After further checking, it appears that this policy is real. This nature and subject of this request, such a slap in the face of a FB account holder, especially after a hack, is simply too much to process. Most of us know the horror stories about the end results of IDENTITY THEFT for starters. We all realize how the federal government, state and local law enforcement are trying to stop such identity theft – which is out of control. Here, you have FB requesting identity documents to verify a FB page? What are they immigration, a subcontractor of the NSA or what? Love the part about the “once we review the documentation we will destroy it.” THIS CANNOT BE LEGAL. What, did Zuckerberg get rid of the legal department too?

      No company like this, AOL, Netscape, Yahoo, Google or any other one of the big boys ever went this far. Then to downright tell you your account will be closed if you don’t comply is downright criminal evil behaviour. More seriously bad decisions and current and future exposure to some BIG TIME LIABILITY. Oh, and their defense is that they just “changed” their “rules” a short while ago and believe we are all bound by these new communistic rules, even though FB did nothing to provide legal notice about them.

      Well I complied with this hacker like mentality request of theirs. Guess what, after I sent my damn passport to them 3 times, they e-mailed me back and said account closed, they never received any document from me. Now that’s extortion (w/out money) and ransom. Give me your id and I will give your identity back to you.

      Where are the Winkelsteins when you need them? Can you spell L A W S U I T? Time for the feds to step in and expose this big corporate boo boo. Perhaps an arrest or two would be in order as well. I am serious here ….. and I am really pissed about this “we control the world whether you like it or not.” “We won’t give you back pictures it took you years to get, years to find your friends and contacts and new friends, etc.” “We just want your goverment id (official of course), cause we really need to know where you live, what you look like (THIS IS HYSTERICAL) and so on.” Hey all you hedge funds and institutional investors — you think it might be time to dump your shares in a company that just rolled over on a few hundred thousand victims of hackers?

        This has just happened to me and I cannot agree more!!!!!!! I am sincerely pissed off, and i was in mid conversation. With the exceeding amount of identity theft I refuse to upload a picture. Not to mention that I work in law enforcement and my ID circulating out there would not end up well. Their help line phone number doesn’t allow you to talk with anyone or leave messages. I need them rethink this decision, due to the fact that i only use fb to contact out of state relatives, and somebody reviewing ID’s can steal your identity with ease!!!

        Hello, I have just been locked out of my Facebook Account less than an hour ago with NO WARNING! from Face Book at all, I have in all sincerity done nothing wrong nor have have I broken any of Face Book Policy Rules or broken any of Face Book Violations, I have only One Face Book Account!! Personally I find this Face Book behaviour shocking! disrespectful! insulting! and offensive! There is No Way What So Ever will I send Face Book my Personal ID INFORMATION, if this is Facebook’s way of treating the Honest, Sincere Account Holder then it’s bye bye Face Book Big Time for me!! I do fully understand that security measures must be taken seriously but asking for my PERSONAL ID is Asking Far To Much…… It’s My Personal ID Information, it would be no longer be Personal if I went and shared it with Face Book or anyone else for that matter!

        Kind Regards

        I concur completely with the above statement. I was asked to give up my personal statistics today. The secret squirrels are smug. They believe they have the keys to the kingdom and can do whatever they want to in order to get what they want and ultimately hurt people. If you live in the DMV you encounter these types all the time. They are well fed with good pensions and they really do not care who they step on because they believe their take on all things is the only accurate one. Sometimes their motive is political. God forbid if you are on the perceived wrong side and do not agree with the flow of their changing world. Final rule do not ask Facebook about their security policy when a Senator has an inordinate amount of strange harassing comment on his condolence post for another Senator. (YOU wil be punished and asked to furnish documents.)

        I am sick of their freaking crap too. I only ever used faceshite for things like competitions, organisations needing my support, etc, never ever posted photos or accounts of my doings. They can get f**cked sideways as far as I’m concerned. Sent scan of my licence as requested with licence no. and address covered even though it pissed me off bigtime some months back and they would not accept my current driver’s licence, which is accepted by the police where I live and anywhere else I need to show id. Not good enough for these f**kfaces apparently, even when I asked what was wrong with my id, got some terse extremely unhelpful reply. I was quite happy never to have anything to do with these bumwipes again, but now I have joined a group for working purposes who communicate through it. So tried again – just got reply again not accepting licence, nothing to say what is wrong with it, mind you. Funny how I can lose my password for ANY OTHER FRICKEN SITE and all I have to do is provide the email address they already have and hey presto, change password, back on. These bumholes can sit on the rough end of a pineapple and f**cking rotate.

        Well, I very recently recieved this request from facebook as well. It’s why I’m here doing some research. I’ve had the impression that FB represents very liberal media. Athough I have used my FB account as a business contact for my business and have made a very ernest attempt at staying nuetral on political and current events. I had the audacity to voice some conservative opinions in response to someone elses very liberal posts. I had a bad feeling about it as I have known for sometime now that mean spirited people can simply report you for abuse (for no reason) and FB will look into it. No sooner did I express my opinion and “Bam”! I’m locked out. I too believed this request absured and will NOT comply with this request. There are other social media where one can promote and advertise ones business such as LinkedIn. This time I’ll just keep my opinions to myself…censorship is a powerful weapon. Thanks for nothing FB!

        I think FB is just insane to ask for this information. I see fake profiles of high ranking US Military officers, and have reported them to the FBI…and FB has the nerve to ask for photo ID when they can’t even identify the fake accounts of high ranking government officials, which high ranking military officers are??? WTF are they thinking? There has to be some kind of legal way we can stop this fucken insanity.

        its happened again. as of 8/Jul/15, Facebook is yet again holding millions ransom unless we yet again give them a Govt I.D. having gone thru this 4 times, I am done with them, am reporting them to my Boss at The State Dept, and am going to get an In Writing statement from Zuckerberg himself as to why this has happened YET again and a solution to stop it. this will be posted by the NY Times. calling this illegal does not come close. and you are right, there IS no way they can go thru millions of I.D.s and “Verify” them, and the idea that they will then destroy the info, if true, means they WILL have toi then do this again later, having nothing to “Verify” you are you when this DOES happen again.

        Thanks for posting this. I am locked out- meaning no code is sent to me anymore now after many codes were sent to my cell phone in order to open my page. I wrote them that the fact that the code is being sent to my cell is enough identification. Or why don’t you call my home phone- the phone company has my name as a client and also I am listed publicly. I believe that they are phishing for info to sell to people or companies. I wasn’t sure what to do but was nervous about the government ID. Having read this solidified my decision! I will not do it! Your posting was very helpful. Thank Goodness for people like all of you who speak out!

        My FB account is disabled and I agree that uploading documents on the Internet that could be used for identity theft is a bad idea. FB has my email address that uniquely identifies who I am so their request for these identity theft documents has no practical business use for FB.

        I just went to the WhiteHouse.gov petition page for this issue https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-facebook-intruding-users-privacies-and-demanding-real-name-identification-proofs, signed the petition, got a confirmation email with around 50 lines of css code at the top, figured out which link at the bottom to confirm my signing and obtained a 404 page (could not be found). I clicked the contact link at the bottom of the WhiteHouse.gov page to let them know about the problem and obtained another 404 page.

        There are plenty of competitors on the Internet that make turning away customers a bad idea.

        I agree with you in so many levels and maybe a threat of another Class Action lawsuit will stop this madness. Below is an email i sent to a phantom email with a ghost customer service dept in Facebook. What a joke??
        ***************************************************************************************
        Why does it take so long. I have provided my information days ago and I am still waiting a response, not to mention you have the worse customer service ever. I know it’s a free site but you all must be getting paid somehow, maybe thanks to us as “social media” consumers. I don’t understand why such high top security,and the constant updates guess being used by government means more than working with the simple public who are not using the site for any criminal activities.

        Your security policies are ridiculous if we comply with request and not being automatically taken care of. It is sad that it always comes to this when a place that comes from humble beginnings becomes PUBLIC and CORPORATE Capitalism takes over.

        I believe that a probable Class Action Suit may be brought upon to you all some day including the head of the corporation for duping it’s user the way you do by not being as useful as you claim to be.

        This is poor customer service and I am highly disappointed in Facebook and would only like to gain access because I have family and friends abroad that are wondering what happened to me. But in all honesty Facebook you have turned into the most wicked thing on the internet.

        In case anyone does read this email and sees how your way of doing things are just not completely fair I hope I get a response and a reactivation of my account.

        I had innocently changed my name to a nick name my fiance liked -CHARDONNEY SPARKELS (mind you there are hundreds of users with this name already, yet pages remain open) and my page was closed. I provided my actual name ****** with a picture, should be sufficient enough to prove my identity.

        I will not be providing anything else, since I don’t know exactly who is if anyone reviewing this, and don’t feel the need to compromise my privacy in that way to a ghost person.

        I have run out of options and hoping someone gets back to me soon.

        This is the current email address I am registered with as well as [email protected]***.COM, which I’ve had for over ten years.

        Thank you, and good day to whoever!!

        I agree! This is unfair to the peoples privacy. I don’t like having people knowing my real name, where I live, or what I’m doing. But I still wanna use Facebook to keep in contact with my friends! Its not that I have anything to hide its just I don’t trust anything that wants my personal information for no reason. I could understand Facebook is doing to keep they’re business safe but this right here is a violation to our privacy. This needs to end now!

        Please do not forget that Facebook is no more than a marketing tool targeted at gathering data info from all its members in order to sell you products. Its is presented as a platform for “social media” to attract its traffic.

        I say, Let’s play their game and use their weaknesses to strike back.

        Fb denied me to access my page. I may have happened because I was using multiple devices. Or, it could have been because I have another page, since Fb also limits people to having only 5,000 friends. Or, it could be that someone who I spurne may have reported that I have two pages.

        I complied with Fb’s [unreasonable] demand to produce proof of my identity with my California State Driver’s License, and they responded, “We’ll get in touch with you at the email address you provided after we’ve reviewed your ID. You will now be logged out of Facebook.”… They have never responded, and, this same scenario has repeated itself, when I have tried numerous ways to contact them, and complained to them and pleaded with them to please restore my account which they had ‘hijacked’…

        Why do they bother asking for my ID, when they have no intention of restoring my page to me???

        Actually, somehow, many times going into fb, my fb page is already logged into and I then get emails messages that I logged in from an unknown url. I have been locked out of fb for a week. I would really like to just get into facebook to deactivate it. Fox reported facebook’s stock is down. Do they even know this is happening? The last time I was locked out, they wanted me to download their security suite Caspersky. I’m thinking of contacting our Attorney General because it is not possible for me to deactivate the account.

      After being a decent member of Facebook and keeping all the rules they have finally rewarded me by locking me out of Facebook for months on end and I cant get back in. Sadly I don’t like saying this, but Facebook are spoilt with a huge number of members on a global scale to such an extent that individuals have become faceless to them and no longer count. This is what power and control does God bless you :-(

        My account was just shut down until I send ID to verify my name. Cinnamon really is my legal name lol. My mother had an odd sense of humor, I guess.

        The only thing I use Facebook for is to participate in discussion boards through our local newspaper’s website. It’s the only way to do so. Yesterday, some whiny young kid got his panties in a bunch because I disagreed with him about something or other and reported me to Facebook. I didn’t say anything inappropriate. It was just a normal debate about some political issue (or so I thought). Then I get a notice that my account was reported as being a fake name. WTF? They do realize that anybody can click a link to report you, right? I mean, it is such an abusive and repressive practice. Certainly an effective way to shut down open discussion.

        I refuse to send them ID. Who needs Facebook that bad? Not me.

      ((( Hi,

      Thanks for your reply. At this time, we can’t give you access to this account or continue with your request because you either:

      – Haven’t sent a form of ID that we can use to verify your identity
      – Sent us documentation that doesn’t match the name, photo or date of birth listed on this Facebook account

      Which is totally strange as the information are exact match to the FB profile. I replied to ask further clarifications, and if they don’t answer me exactly what does not match, I am stopping using this shit called Face Book. I am in a way nearly decided that that is it, and fuck Facebook, and may be they did me a favor. No more fucking Face Book.

        Did they ever open your account. This has happened to my friend and he refused to provide Id, so he has been without a FB account for three weeks. He was going to try to use a fake id, but why. In the end he is without a FB account, but the funny thing is he gets notifications from FB saying he has pokes, friends posted, you missed all this crap. What an awful way to tease a person.

      There are so many scams being perpetrated over the internet that only an drooling fool would do what facebook is requesting. How does anyone even know that it is, in fact, facebook making the request? If it is Facebook, how do we know that the documents will be deleted or even secure on a website that has been hacked? I’m certainly not going to cooperate with those f—–g idiots in this attempt to gather personal information that is none of their business. The capcha and email password resets, made several times from both my PC and Phone within a short period of time should be reassurance that I am the same me as I have always been. :-) boneheads! I managed for years without facebook and I’ll easily manage without it again.

      I always suspected how Facebook got such a humongous initial public offering of their stock with little business to support the IPO. It looks like NSA surveillance program with Facebook may be an indication of who is the real and largest shareholder of Facebook. `Facebook is now a government site and should be a part of the Social Security of National ID program. Is not a fun private website. I will not use my personal ID on an ensecure site to promote and sell your ID publically without protection. It defeats the purpose it was created for.

      I wonder if FB sees the rest of the world as an unnecessary burden. Since the internet does not “belong” to the US others can join, but for some reason we in other countries are not asked for ID. I noticed that Europe has put a flat stop to this. This ID insistance is absolutely disgraceful – it probably WILL come to other countries so that they can round up the world nicely FOR THEM!

      first off why are they targetting like celebrity accounts some do fan pages for them.
      based on the federal laws of privacy and protection act …they are a social media they are not employers they don’t pay you and it is criminal. they need to be taught a lesson. tons of social media sites people use usernames and start fan pages or they don’t want to use their names do to race, or domestic abuse or privacy of the celebrity and facebook has no right. They need a class action lawsuit on them whos with me. locking someones account without reading the account. for example what is your dob I didn’t even put my dob. that is stupid and I am not going to put my iD out there for a fan page I don’t trust facebook nor staff what if they use it for other means I mean how are they making so much anyways. They are even targeting the IP addresses. This is invading our privacy. If I was at home they could stalk you or steal from you it is not safe. This company needs to be put down… or pay a fine for serious criminal activities.

        I have been dealing with this issue since March 14, 2017. Someone changed my email address only not my password. Dealing with Facebook has been hell. Since March, Facebook has asked for my ID to prove my identity. First I sent them a copy of my drivers license only to be told just about three weeks ago that my ID did not match up with my account. Who are they matching me up with? I then sent them more ID only to be told they could not help me. I was shocked. Why can’t they help me? I am now so sorry I trusted them. I feel like a fool reading all of the comments here. All I wanted was my account back. I did not care about the pictures, just wanted my friends back. I guess I could have just created a new account but then I would need a new email and why should I have to go through all that. I do not want two email accounts.. At this point I am really done with Facebook because I don’t know where else to turn for help. Now I worry about what will they do with my ID? I so wanted my account back but this has just been too much. Thanks for listening.

      Same here… they lie about their automated security process.

      Here is the story: After successful login it doesn’t let me process further and shows the following message: “To help keep your Facebook account secure, we have an automated security process that checks lists of passwords that have been stolen from other websites and published online.

      The password you use on one of those sites matches the password you use on Facebook. We aren’t aware of any suspicious login activity on your account, but we’ll walk you through a few steps to change your password and help keep your account secure”

      This is impossible because I only use this combination for Facebook. Further proof that is that I can still recover my account via E-Mail and change the password. However, after login the same message appears. Therefore the message is a total lie!!

      What I did minutes before they locked me out was removing my mobile phone number. So for me it seems the security process stuff shows up because of this.

      Now they only option to process further after login is to upload an ID. Even, my account runs with my real name I will certainly never ever do that.

      So what now.. I really want to delete my account now and say goodbye to this company! I don’t want to work with companies that tell me shit and need an ID of me after over 10 years. It’s an easy step for me because in the past years I was online only about 3-4 a year.

      However, how can I delete the account now? Even I know my login and I have access to the corresponding E-Mail there seems no option to do that without sending an ID of me? Have you experiences similar issues after removing the mobile phone number? Is there an E-Mail address where they quickly delete my account? Tried [email protected] but nothing happens and no answer since days.

    Ho ho, they finally show their hand.

    Facebook is a textbook phishing operation.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing

    ” What is phishing?

    Phishing is a type of Internet fraud that seeks to acquire a user’s credentials by deception. It includes theft of passwords, credit card numbers, bank account details and other confidential information.

    Phishing messages usually take the form of fake notifications from banks, providers, e-pay systems and other organizations. The notification will try to encourage a recipient, for one reason or another, to urgently enter/update their personal data. Such excuses usually relate to loss of data, system breakdown, etc.”

    We all knew that, but this just cements it in the record books.

      Read your reply above, had to comment. Believe me I am pretty much on high alert when it comes to security issues concerning computing in this day in age. I learned the hard way… However, believe me, I did quite a bit of research before “the event” occurred. Talk about stealing here . . . hack, phish, squish etc., header info on linked Yooho (ikk) email from Facebook was checked at least 5 times for comparison, down to ips, header, department domain, etc. Checked on another FB user page on this, and saw the rule (alleged) on their page as well and allegedly on official FB page. This saga I am not finished with yet as whoever fabricated or stole FB content, e-mail addresses and all that — is going to FB legal. Will not stop there as from the timeline, apparently this has been going on for a while. There’s more, yet —- as of today — nothing has changed! And we all know that FB has skeleton crew workforce, no contact, no support, no nothing. So, guess I will have my friend just generate an e-mail to their Shareholders to advise them of “pretent privacy” and other “rules” they allege are in effect to protect users. The awareness of all content on FB, as stated above, personal data, pictures, family data, telephone numbers, addresses, friends, etc. free for the taking with no, you know, absolute no protection or support from FB. As my friend says, anything for free is worth nothing. TBC….believe me…..they get away with this because they can. Time someone stood up for the right thing. P.S. The last HUGE HACK last week on Google, FB and Twitter – WAS BURRIED VERY DEEP if even published. Hmm, sounds like news to me instead of someone running over a grasshopper or whatever stupid stuff some MAJOR WEBSITES/NEWS publish.

      I have family pictures and personal information that Facebook has locked me out of, to include locking out my friends and family. Fact; Facebook monitors will filter your audience, and will lock you out of your account if your views are not to their liking, to include challenging you, if you want to reaching out to others with similar views. This is a social media venue that should not stifle any user, because of their beliefs; religious or political. Facebook monitors will scrutinize specific posts, views, and belief especially during this current U.S. presidential election, where it has spiked. Therefore a Lawsuits for suppressing the freedom of speech, religious, political, and bar of personal information posted warrants Facebook Inc to be Subpoena by the U.S. District Court and John G.

      i would like to know too. I did hear a report saying that they have a system in place which removes several 1000 accounts a day as “fake” accounts. And they added that most people do not contact them that have had their account suspended. What is troubling to me is that they do not show a way to contact them other than after submitting a copy of a gov ID. And they say that since people don’t contact them that their accounts must be fake and up to no good. That was troubling to me. It appears that the only way they will take correspondence is if a gov ID is uploaded to them. This is puzzling.

      Libtards have discovered that the easiest way to get rid of their opposition is to report that they are using a fake name. This results in a lockout that FB usually won’t reverse even after you jump through a lot of hoops. If you try to open a new account using your old cell number, they won’t let you.

    A side-effect and possibly a side or main aim of this FB polka will be to make users hesitate to log out (for those who even think about it) in order to avoid being locked-out, and therefor, logged-in even when on the other side of FB planet, keep being tracked, and tracked, and tracked …
    Well, if they don’t mind, who will?

      even if you log out you will also be banned. unless you delete your facebook (NOT JUST DEACTIVATE) in 14 days.

      unless you totally delete facebook account. even if your acc deactivate, facebook will still disable u.

      many ppl deactive FB and still got disabled.
      only if you delete totally.

    Huh! But the fact is, anyone hacking Facebook probably already has a name, birthday, and pictures for a user — and a lot more information too. Obviously, if a user neglects to cover his licence or passport number in the ID confirmation picture, that info is available for however long the data exists on FB’s server. Facebook was last hacked on Feb 15, 2013, although “no user data was compromised”. From a story in the ever-reliable Telegraph, on Oct 16 of this year:

    “‘Intuitively everybody knows that that information should not be there. You would not write that information on a sandwich board and walk down your local street with it on. That is exactly what you are doing with Facebook.’ When asked about the findings a Facebook spokesman acknowledged people have a responsibility to be careful with their data and stressed that the company has systems in place to stop hackers.”

    Yup.

      If so the fee will be high to compensate the mountain of targeted-ad revenue.
      I don’t think Facebook will ever propose such a thing, without even taking into consideration it would be a slap in the face of users without that premium account, but taking into consideration that a targeted user brings not only advertisement revenue but also plain intelligence data, whatever they say.
      And what would be “additional privacy”? You must mean a minimum of guaranteed privacy? And guaranteed by what?
      Facebook is a data collector. Period.

      In order to pay a fee you will need to use some form of payment. Are you willing to give them a credit or debit card number? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO way pal. What stops them from charging you again again again. What stops them from selling this info to others. Do you read the fine print at the bottom of the facebook page. They have a right to share info with their affiliates. Do you read the fine print when you do one of their fun quizzes? If you take the quiz that company automatically gets all your facebook info. Facebook get $$$ for this info from the quiz masters. In other words the quiz people write the quizzes just so the can trick you into getting your private info. HOWEVER Banks, credit card companies, cable companies, internet companies, utilities and just about every other internet company does the same thing. READ THE FINE PRINT.

      What you are saying seems to me very relevant of the huge advantage of Google. Google+ is simply an extra feature, but the company has developed such an arsenal of services that it is very hard if not unimaginable to be on the Web without meeting them one way or another.

      I’ve tested for fun, with a Firefox add-on called Blocksite Plus, to block all urls containing google ( http*://*google* ) which in fact blocked more than Google itself and still not all of Google but already a wide area… well, several sites, mainly those calling a Google api simply didn’t work right.

      Google is a dinosaur, Facebook an elephant. I think the time of the latter is counted because the company relies only on one service: putting people and their lives in connection with others’. 1 billion people for 1 service. It’ll crash sooner or later.

      It wasn’t a mistake. In April 2014 it happened to me and still they ask for government ID. Since they list Birth Certificate I have sent them a copy of mine, from the United Kingdom, and blacked out all data except my name and DOB and referred to European Data Privacy laws. As a side thought, what use would a photo on a birth certificate serve, not that mine has one… I await their response.

    Doesn’t just sound strange – it sounds bizarre. I think we’re dealing here with ivory tower management.

    I’ve just never ‘got’ Facebook (and I get Twitter even less.) Hell, I don’t even text people – I invite friends around for supper by old-fashioned telephone. It’s called having a life.

    I do have a FB account, but only to see news and pictures of my grandchildren who live a long way away. FB holds almost no information on me beyond the minimum to support an account, and I’d never dream of doing otherwise with any online service. Friends used to call me paranoid – right up to the Prism debacle.

    If this latest nonsense becomes true, then I’m gone – along with anyone else with a grain of self respect.

    Hah, as if I’d do that.

    I do have two fake profiles at Facebook complete with a seemingly authentic name and history so my own privacy is assured. Those are mainly used to participate in a number of groups on the site, but some times when I’m bored, I catch a game as well. Since I don’t communicate with my friends via social media, my accounts with fake names work just as well for my purposes.

    Neither the groups nor the games are so valuable, that I’d register with my real name. If they should ever require a confirmation by photo ID from me, it would instantly mean my departure from the site.

They can go to classmates and find me in an online copy of all four year books. They know what city I am from and what city I am in. They know what I like, what I have read, what music I like and what political spectrum I fall in.

    Facebook should call themselves Fascistbook. I am getting sick of their rules and policies. For absolutely no reason I was blocked from using a feature on facebook (commenting on pages and statuses) for absolutely no reason. Facebook blocked me for over a month. They failed to provide me a reason why I was blocked. I messaged them numerous times and still no response. After months of waiting I was finally unblocked and as soon as I commented on a status they logged me out of my account and asked for me to verify my account with a mobile number and I did this.. within 10 minutes of being back on my account they logged me out again and asked me to verify my account with a government issued account.. I completely lost it!! There is no way in hell I am giving them my iD. Welldone facebook on losing another member. Guess this is what happens when Zuckerberg sells out facebook to the NSA.

      Here’s the dingus: their asking for a photo ID is unlawful under the Californian law. Hell, suspending people for fake names without a good reason is against the Californian law too!
      Here’s what I did: when they suspended me on Tuesday, I replied with a strongly worded e-mail mentioning codes, cases, Supreme Court decisions, basically legalese for “go fuck yourself and gimme my account back”. I managed to bully them into backing off and reinstating my account. But then, apparently a different shift of morons was carted in, one moron tripped over my e-mail that went into a different place than the rest… and they suspended my account again, forcing me to repeat myself, with some extra cases, decisions and opinions.
      I am not a lawyer, but I can easily spot illegal bullshit going on. Facebook has absolutely no legal leg to stand on in this case. One person irritated enough to drag them to court, and unpleasant things for Facebook will happen.

    As they have now monetised themselves; they need users more than I need Facebook! Which I was only on at the insistences of friends (who mostly don’t actually use it!).

    So Facebook…you were an irritating part of my life for less than fourteen months, I guess this is goodbye…can’t say I’m sad to see you go…your menus are not clear, your platform makes Blogger look smart, your messaging is a poor version of Skype and I was sick of the Adverts…on top of that you’ve decided to block genuine people from their own-name registered pages, while allowing Jihadis, Fascists and dog-baiter’s to run dozens of fake-ID pages, concurrently?

I stoped using it anyways, some 2, even 3 years ago, when “smarter and more interesting” focused social networks came out… Locked account didn not even happend to me, but to my friend, and what they are doing is outrageous! I completly agree that it is a form of RANSOME.

    Happy to have ended my account with FB!

    I am bewildered as I wasn’t even giving an option to verify with my phone number.They gave me a text option and an audio captcha option and despite typing in the audio numbers and the text several times my account remains blocked and I attached it to my website.This is a rude awakening.If anybody knows any statutes of law which shows the illegality of their actions kindly let me know as I will not let them get away with this nonsense.
    Banners Broker was a piddly little company and when people started talking about it and spreading word of how good they were they started implementing rules which made it difficult for their Affiliates to operate and realize what they paid for and luckily I got my £3,629 by taking them to task through the Ombudsman.Amazon has started doing the same thing with its sellers and now Facebook.It tells you to keep away from where many people gather as it will soon turn to a place of abuse and trampling of your rights.Facebook is owned by a young man who could not speak to me on the road if he met me but now he is using his platform to abuse me.Well it means I will never rely on this platform again and serves me a lesson that I will definitely learn from.

      I think there is a flaw in the name reporting systems coding. And it has hole in it in which other users can report another user as not using real name. And if they have an army of zombie accts, can get them all to report a user acct as using fake name to get that user booted off facebook. this may be why some users report be booted off facebook on a weekly basis. Seems like a script kiddie messing around with the flaws in their name reporting system. If not, I would like to get response from their chief technology officer. Interestly they have been going through a couple in the last couple years. And the current one has recently sold off 2.2 million dollars worth of his shares in facebook. A number of facebook insiders have been reported to be selling off massive amounts of facebook shares, while at the same time are saying facebook stock will more than double in 2015??

      i just can’t see how any one can trust them with business.. I have seeing many many reports of people who are being blocked who run groups, fan pages. And some are doing it as a service to client businesses.. and getting locked out can cause many problems for the administration of a fan page or group. The future for facebook is looking alot more like Myspace, the further i research this.

    this is happening to many of us, now I am a victim too. yes it’s on my facebook too.

    Frankly speaking, if we want real people as friend. we dont have to use facebook, a lot of online people are fake. myspace does not need people show their ID cards too. if I want to be real I would go out of my home to make friends, not to use internet.

    many people online are very fake.

    Facebook is not legal dept (police) or your country government, can we report this to our local police?

    steal people ID card is crime. do facebook staff know that?

    if we want real we dont need facebook. facebook also contains black heart people who always report other people without reason.

    many times my account got lock. got ban. photo identify , because many lifeless facebookers only sue sue sue sue sue. I dont like facebook very much.

    these yrs I read facebook complain and posts, a lot of people got disabled because facebook think that they are fakers.

    I come to facebook to play facebook games. to have fun.

    not to prove I am real.

    I USE FACEBOOK NOT TO PROVE I AM REAL./ if I WANT PROVE I GO REALPICS.net.

    if I want to prove I am real , I would prefer salute on Realpics.net. not use facebook

If everyone should go to local police and report facebook (as ridiculous as it would be) as a private Californian entity, which is asking for your local ID, then maybe you will stand a chance. Otherwise all your mumble jumble tricks will just re-invent them, making them better. And anyway, by now, facebook knows everything about you, including your mobile and your real name , because you logged-in already one time using the mobile app. So good luck people.

    Facebook is allowing malevolent trolls to report legitimate facebook pages, which then get hit with the requirement for providing photo IDs, etc. But many of these sites are community organizations that don’t have a “photo ID”, or any credit cards or utility bills to provide. Facebook has fallen for the trolls’ complaints and now many legitimate organizations are banned from facebook. Facebook needs to change this insanity, or everyone will be migrating to other sites instead.

    After verifying the capcha, and sending the confirmation text via phone, I was allowed on. 20 minutes later, I was logged out and had to repeat the process to “pass their security check”. Then another 20 minutes later, I was logged out, and had to repeat the process. Then a 3rd time, same deal. 3 Security checks an hour?

    After the 4th time, I was logged out..and asked to verify using mobile number. And guess what? Facebook said “you have already activated an account with this number”? Well DUH. Does Facebook want me to have TWO cellphones? Then they gave me the ID request thing.

    Facebook rejects names with less than 3 characters and so people have to invent names to have an account.
    Then FB proceeds to ask you to verify with an ID with the exact same name which they rejected.

    Their brilliant idea is just stupid.
    I think they ostracize the Asian population with short names like “Li”, “Du”, “To”,”Ye”, “Ke”, “Lu” etc.

    Mark got the lengthy msg.below:


    Mark W—tz,

    For security reasons your account is temporarily locked
    If this account reflects your real name and personal information, please help us verify it
    .

    Upload a photo ID
    To make sure this is your account, we need you to upload a color photo of your government-issued ID.

    Your ID should include your name, birthday and photo.
    Acceptable IDs include your:
    Passport

    Driver’s license
    State-issued ID card

    Military ID card
    Immigration ID with signature
    Please keep in mind that we can’t accept your profile picture.

    Once we receive and review a clear image of your ID, we will permanently delete your attached identification document from our servers.

    I am done with FACEBOOK if i can’t get back in my own account since like 8 YEARS AGO, i m done with facebook if this happen again,when i try to log in soon. MARK is giving up on em,and filing a complaint,and will not be on if this is the case.

    ((( Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. At this time, we can’t give you access to this account or continue with your request because you either:

    – Haven’t sent a form of ID that we can use to verify your identity
    – Sent us documentation that doesn’t match the name, photo or date of birth listed on this Facebook account
    )))

    Which is totally strange as the information are exact match to the FB profile. I replied to ask further clarifications, and if they don’t answer me exactly what does not match, I am stopping using this shit called Face Book. I am in a way nearly decided that that is it, and fuck Facebook, and may be they did me a favor. No more fucking Face Book.

I have not seen any reports from any of the other 3 largest email providers (yahoo, google, and microsoft) doing this. There is pieces of this puzzle that still need to be revealed.

    I eMailed this to two random Facebook executives who’s eMails I found on Google….

    1) I believe the information you are asking for is not to be given to you under UK data-protection legislation without good reason. As I hold a Facebook page under the name I was born with, the name I use to register most of my Internet accounts/memberships with; the fact that you’re telling me my name is ‘not allowed’ is NOT (in my own opinion) a good enough reason for me to pass private information or images of private documents to you, without more assurances than the vague claim of subsequent destruction you make.

    2) I believe this matter is either down to; A) the attempts myself and several others were making for the last few weeks to get the fascist National British Resistance sites of Mr. Joshua Bonehill shut down…something you were as reticent to do as you have proved with to be with Jihadist or animal torture sites like dog-fighting, or; B) an attempt to obtain – BY DECEPTION – information you can then use for commercial gain.

    3) You already obtain commercial gain from me by the advertising you place in front of me, and on my timeline as viewed by others. There was no problem with my name when I registered or for the subsequent 13 months I have been using your service?

    4) Therefore I have to assume there is no REAL problem with my account at all, but rather a manufactured one for either of the points in 2 – above. As you have floated yourselves on the market, your need for users (of your service) is greater than my need for Facebook, which I resisted for years, only joined to stop a few friends whinging and find to have some poor interfaces and a less than clear structure/format vis-à-vis settings. It is also cripplingly heavy on data-use for someone like me with a pay-as-you-go dongle.

    5) Please either unblock my page ([Personal details removed]) OR send me an eMail detailing the specific problem you have with the name I use, which I was born with and which I also use on Blogger, Google+ and Amazon OR return all my images and original copy, and close my account, providing evidence of its having been closed.

    6) If you chose the last option in 5) above, please accept fair warning that following the deletion of my page, by you, any and all subsequent notifications, requests or advertisements by you, your agents or nominated representatives, by electronic or traditional mail, text or in person toward or directly aimed at me will be considered further-harassment and invoiced by me to your London Office at £100 damages per action/incident, to be recovered – in the event you fail to pay the invoices by the due date/s – in the UK’s County Court service via the fast-track, small claims facility.

    7) I retain the right to republish this image, or a text version of the words upon it as and where I see fit.

    …I was back-on FB first thing Monday…this always seems to happen over weekends?

    I did not know about this policy until yesterday evening when I was locked out of my account. I don’t believe it’s because of what they are saying, I think it’s a load of crap. Why would they even care what names we are using? Every other social media site allows their users/members to use nicknames. A lot of people have a problem using their real names on the Internet anyways, so this is a major violation problem. What they are asking of us is not right and personally I think it’s a little creepy. I can understand if they want us to show just our names, but they want our names, birth dates, and a photo too? No thanks. Facebook is not important to me to give personal information out like that. Hell, our online banks don’t even ask us for IDs, so why should we have to with Facebook?

    I was just recently locked out of my account that I was using for professional purposes instead of my other one that I use as entertaining purposes. I told them they had until the 27th of this month to resolve it. They are causing me to lose clients and money because of it. My advice to everyone,find a new site!

    My account was “temporarily blocked”. I bought a software from a guy’s WSO (Warrior Site Offer), I wanted the special software he was offering and the bonuses. The instructions for getting the bonuses was to send him a request message via his facebook page. I sent him a message with the proof of payment information so he would see that I purchased via his affiliate link. My account was instantly deleted. I was not logged into facebook at the time sent him the request.. I just do not understand why I was blocked. I had done nothing wrong. I am so frustrated like everyone else here. After submitting the picture of my license (which after reading everyone’s comments I now regret), the page turns to a white screen and nothing happens. I have no idea if facebook received it or not. After going through all of the other phone and captcha verifications, I should not have to do anything more. I am not surprised that they are abusive towards people… They have a huge amount of power from being so popular and they feel that they can treat people terribly if they want to. They have zero accountability.

    Not only am I locked out, but it also means I can not access my page anymore to update.

    I absolutely refuse to send facebook a legit federal id, and equally I won’t spend money to buy a fake id just to circumvent facebook.

    I did find an android app for creating fake id’s however all the id’s have this stupid text that says “fake id generated by” on them.

    I am looking still for some sort of service where we can type in a name, and an IMAGE of a REAL LOOKING id being displayed to us.

    I don’t care if its an id, a birth cert, or any other facebook approved “valid document”.

    Perhaps some of our more tech. inclined friends will be able to create something for us along these lines just for this purpose.

    I am certain fake id’s are illegal but I am not so sure that images of fake id’s are and thats all facebook is asking for.

    Facebook aka Tracebook is obviously a front for the NSA. The crazy thing is they are barely even trying to hide it anymore. Not only do they ban people who post anything that can be considered political dissent, but they have the audacity to have a policy like this. A free social media site asking people to present photo ID and use their real name just to participate.

    Who benefits from such a policy? Only the government period.

    My partner and myself were just locked out of Facebook this week. We’re relatively certain a jealous woman we dealt with recently issued the report.

    Both of us are extremely uncomfortable providing the documentation asked for.

    Thing is? I have a stalker and -can’t- use my legal name safely on the internet. Family and friends all know me as the name used in Facebook so why isn’t the pseudonym ok? It’s not like I was spamming or doing anything objectionable.

    Guess I’ll have to find another way to share with them.

    Locked out of facebook today because they said I was using a different device than normal. I’m using the same laptop I’ve been using for years. I rarely use FB and was only logging in to check for messages from my kids. They want a copy of my government issued photo ID to verify my identity. I have no photo’s of myself on FB, what are they going to compare my ID to? My FB uses my full actual name and date of birth. They can contact me using my email, which is the only information that is needed to make the dam account and the only thing that they need to verify. This is so obviously an attempt to create a database of names, photo’s, dates of birth etc. Uploading a copy of my passport can’t be legal. Not a chance, my kids can just go back to using email to contact me, screw Facebook.

      After years of facebook, I’ve got my account suspended. They are asking me now to upload a personal ID to unlock my account. I consider that this is totally an abuse to our identity and to our personal information. Facebook is no legal state authority, and has no rights to request personal ID’s or personal documents. They are taking our data abusively and they are collecting information about us into their database. Think about how many users are being abused in this way.
      I am just a simple user and you are probably not interested what is my name, or where do I live.
      The point is that we are loosing control on our lives and we are being forced to send them our personal information. Every personal information is protected by law in each country of this world.
      We have legal rights, why don’t we use them ?
      I don’t know about others, but…I don’t need facebook anymore. The friends we have should be part of our real life, not some pictures shown on a desktop.

    Facebook shut my account down 2 weeks ago, siting ‘fake name use.’ They’re right, i didn’t use my real name when i signed up in 2011. Gosh! I Didn’t even know much about social media back then. So i named myself after my favorite African meal. I was informed that someone had reported the name. Why on earth would somebody be bothered about the name of an African food? I never in million years thought it would be a problem. Never had a issue with that account, just went on there to look at wedding dresses and to read celebrity gossip. One day i had it, the next day it was gone. 4 years of pictures, posts, comments, memories, all gone, all lost and all because i named myself after an African food. I didn’t send Facebook my government id so my account remains shut down.

      It takes FaceJoke locking people out and holding their personal information and pics hostage for ransom of your most personal ID’s or Docs…. to make you wake up to the fact that it doesn’t care shit about your privacy.

    How can you guys give your personal information and ID to a Californian private company? For many of you who got into this, you can easily verify your account while in vacation, in nomatterwhere and you buy this local sim card, either mobile internet, either phone calls. I got my suspended account verified in Thailand and since then, never had any issues. Never give your personal data to private entities.

    They send request specify to ask our IDs documents, those shit fuck pigs working behind Fuckjoke…

    Yes, no one should submit our private information to them, until, unless we want to make it a personal matter like gentlemen.

    They must hate us for what our behavior on FB, and do not want free speech any more.

    Facebook kicked me out and claim they need my ID for verification.

    1) how can they verify if I have never shared my picture(s) on Facebook, so why do they need my ID? (To steal my identity, as Facebook employees may not all be legal or even working in USA, but elsewhere ie India, China, & etc)

    2) why would Facebook care if my account is legit or not? I am already logging in and that is their goal, member to log in

    3) having an acc on Facebook already creates more members on Facebook, so why is Facebook abusing that?

    Has anyone been able to log in their account once they have been blocked by Facebook for no reason?

    My Facebook account is business account and I have all my clients in that account. Can someone please advice what to do? Thanks

    Locked out. Will they delete my account after a period of time if I do not provide ID? Gutted as not only will I lose contacts and miss features like events (useful for gigs and birthdays/social events) I’ll lose chat/post history and pictures with my now deceased best friend. I have tweeted asking for a backup of my data but I’m not holding out much hope :(

      there are software Socialsafe ,which can help you backup all your fuckjoke files, at least most of it, if they have give your some 7 days before blocked you there.

      Facebook is a shit, they have no authorization to ask our personal information , and for my understanding of this situation , may be only a few person have really recovered his accounts ,after submitted their IDs.

      We have to fight back on Fuckjokes ,and give them a lesson some how or some way, let them suffer as us one day.

      Sorry, but say Hasta la vista, baby to your contacts and posts!

      Facebook wants your ID and of personal docs (even ask for SS#) to mine more personal information like your work, your home address, school, DOB, your fuzzy wuzzy mug shot…. oh my! They can even assume your identity. Now that you realize Facebook is a joke, cut your looses and quit forever! Also, tell your friends, family, co-workers to QUIT before they are LOCKED OUT! GIVE THEM HEADS UP TO REMOVE ALL THE PICS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION before they suffer the same fate as the people here.

      It takes FaceJoke locking people out and holding their personal information and pics hostage for ransom of your most personal ID’s or Docs…. to make you wake up to the fact that it doesn’t care shit about your privacy. Only cares about mining all your personal information so they can sell it for profit.

      Facebook and their employees are low life’s who just suck people’s personal information. Whatever it takes to make a buck!

      The good thing about FaceJOKE locking people out and demanding their Gov ID’s or Docs is that it just verifies and exposes them as the leeches and the lowest life forms of a SHAM business / company!

    From what I saw on this page here, no one is successfully recovered his IDs.

    The only way out ,is to organized to attach, to fight back ,legally or personally.

    You may try to recovery some of your post or photos and friends, by ask your friends, or you apply another new account with your government IDs, to access you timeline, if it still alive.

    They given me 7 days to prepare those IDs, but I written on the same day to stop my Facebook account, and call them Fuckjoke

    I have been locked out of Facebook for three days now. I wrote a response to FB letting them know i do not wish to give my personal ID information yet they responded back a computerized response on how I can send them identification. What the heck ? Why in gods name would I send my private information over the net to a company i myself cannot get a hold of? There is no way to get a hold of a real life person therefore how can I be sure my info will be deleted or trashed ? I honesty feel this is taking their power too far and anyone falling for this is just a stupid person. Facebook needs to get sued and needs to go to hell!!! I cannot even get back on to delete my account which bothers me even more so. Had I had warning of this I would of closed it down right away. This is why they did not warn anyone. FB is information gatherers.

      Of course you cannot get back your information or ask for deletion, for the simple reason that Facebook doesn’t delete anything. Facebook is a private company which complies with Californian laws only, and this is the reason some countries have already ban them. They are keeping track not only of your private information, which is about 10 percent, but your online behaviour, groups, interests, they have programmes and bots designed to get every piece of information.

    I hate providing accurate information online. For this reason, I made up a birthday for FB, and listed the year as 1914. My name sounds like a fake name, but is not. Recently, I received the Gestapo’s demand for ID. I’ve used and enjoyed my account for 8 years, very low profile and zero anti-TOS activity, so I grudgingly provided a valid driver’s license. Rejected due to mismatched birth dates. I sent it again, in an image and explanation that yes, I used the incorrect birth date, but my govt. ID was the correct date and I’d fix my lie immediately if allowed into my account. I was polite every step of the way. Result: Locked. And “that’s final.” I’m done with FB.

    Firstly there is no possible reason why Facebook would need anyone’s photo ID.

    Secondly the main reason Facebook are asking for it is because your profile has been reported as FAKE by someone else on Facebook.

    Thirdly even IF you send in photo ID and your account is unblocked if anyone else decides to play the same joke and report you AGAIN, your account will be blocked and you`ll have to go through the whole process all over again, and again, and again…

    Lastly the dangers of sending a copy of your photo id are obvious and your leaving yourself wide open to fraud and identity theft.

    DONT SEND PHOTO ID it’s as simple as that…

    Please let’s not forget that Facebook is first and foremost a marketing tool for profits. The “Social Media” aspect of it is a cover up to attract traffic. FB collects data (data mining) from its members and sells it to vendors for major profits.

    I wonder what are their ROI for all these vendors… FB is the only one making the big bucks here and at our own expenses and we are are allowing it freely.

    and FB is getting more and more greedy… to the name of new security…

    i may not be a big user of facebook not a heavy poster but it sure is bloody inconvenient when now it limits my ability to communicate with my girlfriend and her family as we are only able to see each other 2 times a week the rest of the week we chat almost all day and now i have to buy frigging credit for my mobile phone to use Viber and thats a royal pain in the ass too

    oh well fuck facebook i mean why should we be forced to put our complete name on the front page for the whole bloody world to see anyway most of us like to use a nickname some of us dont want to put our full names up and our date of birth on full display come on lets face it this is the internet not exactly that secure or private is it hell i set all the privacy setting on my FB account so no one can find me unless i add them first yet i keep on getting people i dont know adding me

    This is ridiculous, Facebook is not a Government agency with legal rights to such private information about its users, it also infers that all the friends you have, have lied about who you are, which is insulting to say the least b! Why would anyone give a social website such personal detailed information for ? And Facebook is also definitely not security conscience either, they have been hacked into time and time again, Hitler and the Nazis would have loved a setup like facebook, all the information about peoples thoughts, beliefs, religious affiliations, and sexual preferences in one single place, no scouring to be done anywhere its all there in your facebook ready to be used by whoever and whenever they like ! If facebook really needs to know all about there followers, then the best way to do that is to stop limiting what they can and cannot do, like and say, then you would have a true representation of the types attitudes and likes of all those that participate in this huge social experiment ! Its a very flawed system with a lot of loopholes and no real protection of your personal

Second giving info. like Profile engine with out authorization.. 3rd If your Pictures will be upload there will be facial recognition… (i feel scary) but since a lot of my friends using FB I don’t have choice I need to used FB but…this is too much u blocked my FB without any reason…and sending ID Pictures. is not safe… I will never use my account… DAmn FB after u steal and give info. to other site you want to steal our PRIVACY.

    @Vanilla, fb is not stealing anything from us. They dont need to as each one of us is giving freely our profile data to fb. Who in return sells our data to anyone who would pay for it. Fb is a marketing company for major profits at our expenses. Wake up! The fbCoolAid is addictive!

    Same thing happened to me when I woke up at 8 this morning. Tried going in my account and it said it was locked because of nudity I NEVER posed nudity which fucking baffles me as to why they’d lock me out?? Also said i have to verify my identity with my Photo ID!!! Third time this has happened. It’s a complete joke. Fuck fb. It’s now 11pm and no reply from them. I even sent them a nice email explaining my situation and guess what NO reply whatsoever . This is pathetic, I’m starting to think I don’t even need fb!!! Because if this just happens all the time why even bother. It’s stupid, and a waste of my time, they need to sort their shit out!!!! How ar they even allowed to pull this bs!!? And won’t be surprised if I don’t get an email anymore because there’s billions of people going thru this also!!! So mad,

      Facejoke and FUCKaberg will NOT reply, even if you sent those jokers the photo id’s they demand, you’re still locked out.

      Facejoke is just a front and a scam to mine personal information from it’s unsuspecting users.

      You don’t need faceJOKE! The reason for those games on facejoke is to have people addicted to playing, like a drug. So you’ll return again and again.

      To sum it up… FaceJOKE and Mark FUCKaberg are the pimps and the users are the HOEs. All the users are being USED and ABUSED, while those scammers are raking in the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    @psychodelia; very wise comments. I agree with you. I also believe there is a reason for everything.

    It is a very frustrating situation to find myself after 6 years of using fb as my window to the world, as my blank canvas to redraw everyday, as a bridge with my family overseas, as my red book and so much more…maybe too much more. How was my life before fb? Why am i missing it? What is it that i am missing from using it?

    I am becoming very inquisitive as to my usage of fb and its role, impact on my life.

    It is a hard transition and adjustement to not rely on fb anymore. I went to twitter instead. Its not the same. Why is that?

    Maybe twitter needs to become what pepsi is to cocacola.

    It has been 4 months now and my account is still locked while they are reviewing my submitted ID. what a joke!

    I did open a second account and they shut me down fast asking for ID.

    I am on stand still right now learning to live without fb and not be mad about it. A new lifestyle. Sounds weird!

    Blocked and ID check by Facebook. Wow, am I pissed off! FB are happy with taking my money to promote my small, struggling business but have now pulled the plug on that. What’s worse, I (stupidly) used FB to log into other services such as Pinterest, and thanks to FB I have had problems regaining control of those unrelated accounts. NEVER use your FB login details to sign up to any other service!

    FB have just cut off my income for no good reason. Their customer service (and I do consider myself a “customer” seeing as I have paid them for services) is atrocious. They are by far the most horrible, arrogant f**ktards on the planet. They spend so much time and effort encouraging small businesses to build up followers and achievements and then bully us with those achievements using ransom demands for ID.

    Facebook – in the space of just one day you have utterly destroyed all respect I had for you as a serious platform for social engagement and business growth. You are basically just a bunch of vile evil c**ts.

    I was locked out from Facebook five days ago. No explanation why—just that they need a verification & I must send them a government-issued id (driver’s license) with a photo. I refuse to do that! I’ve been on FB for three years, never cluttered my page with too many ‘friends’, didn’t pester others with requests for new friends (happy with those I had)— mainly viewed photos of my grandsons who live in Ontario. And I used my real name too and where I was from. I’m glad I’m not addicted to FB so it is easy for me to adapt. I never could understand why any FB user would need 1000+ friends. A chap who was locked out from FB has been trying for many, many weeks now to get unlocked but can’t because he keeps failing to identify the photos of his seven friends (randomly selected by FB). He said he had a few thousand friends on FB. What a nightmare for him. Even a 6 out of 7 is no good! Has to get all seven for a pass. Even if he finally succeeds, it doesn’t guarantee him anything. What some have to do to get reinstated. Who needs that? (ha)

      So true, your comment with people with 1000 Facebook ‘friends’. What a load of old bollocks! They’d be very lucky if 10 of them were real friends. REAL friends are not that easy to come by, or to keep. It take effort. You cannot possibly extend that effort to so many people. Same with these people who rack up thousands of Twitter or Instragram followers or whatever, is their sense of self esteem that low, they need to have these figures to make them feel worthy? Good for you that you don’t need them, you can always email your grandsons.

      There’s plenty going on in life, ditch F**kbook, people, if they are giving you grief like this.

    Thank you for responding to my Dec. 8/15 comment, Psychodelia. This is interesting. Peter at another web site had this to say on Oct. 25/15: “I recently tried to send a message to a person who I hoped belonged to my family tree. When you send a message on Facebook to someone who is not a member of your FB page you are required to select certain items (images) before they let the message go through. I made an error with one of the items and immediately got locked out of my page. I did not ever get a chance to correct my mistake. I am going through the 3rd degree trying to prove who I am. I have been locked out for the weekend with no end in sight. Trying to get through to Facebook for help is a NIGHTMARE.” This was the exact thing that happened to another FB user that I know. What’s going on?

    If anyone is foolish enough to provide any official documentation to facebook, you may be sure that your information will be passed on to third-party interests. Facebook does not delete your confidential data after you have uploaded it. Facebook – particularly, Mark Zuckerberg and that festering rat Sheryl Sandberg – have also been asking for credit card numbers, too. Facebook alleges that it is because a users account is hacked – that, however, is a lie. Since Sheryl ‘sad-sack’ Sandberg and her dilapidated crew of mental retards began to infringe on freedom of speech, facebook profits plummeted.

    Facebook needs to be investigated – thoroughly, this time – by federal authorities.

    If everyone who has been booted out like us, creates a new account and then starts reporting every name they can, every chance they can, we might be able to upset enough people so that they make so much noise that they have to change there policy.
    Everything I have read has told me that facebook has made it open slather for people to report false names, this is the chink in there armor, this is how we get them back.

    So my account was blocked 10 months ago. Like most of you, i had it for 6 years, low keys and busy. I was so shocked on the day when i couldnt access my account and was asked instead to provide proof of identity. I choose not to and decided to forget forever fuckjoke.

    It was not that easy to stop relying on fuckjoke in my daily tasks after 6 years.

    The twist in my story is that yesterday i went back into fuckjoke to see if i could create another fuckjoke account with another fake name.

    Guess what?
    I can!

    Guess what??
    I dont want it. Its a blank page. I dont know what to do with it. I no longer want to be part of fuckjoke!

    If only i could go back into my #1 account to get my pictures and notes.

    Just say BYE BYE to your FaceJOKE account and photos.

    Unfortunately it’s GONE and NO photo ID will give you access to all your photos. No one else ask for Government photo ID, except for FaceJOKE! They want all your personal information, so they can held you HOSTAGE for obtaining MORE personal information from you. The more personal information you share on FaceJOKE the more desperate one becomes in getting that information / account back when they lock you OUT! Until you surrender your most intimate information / photos / ID to these JOKERS at FB.

    FaceJOKE is SCAM and SHAM for all the millions of unsuspecting users who choose to post all their personal photos, information with them. So, they can sell to the highest bidders.

    Facebook is still at it. They asked repeatedly for months for me to supply a mobile number. I don’t have one. Do you know why walky-talkies have rubber coated antennas? Because if it was exposed it would burn you badly. Everyone using a cell phone today is slowly frying their brain. It causes behavioral abnormalities such as road-rage. I’m not crazy, my IQ is well past 200. I have been locked out of an old account by them today. I don’t want it anymore. But now that they’ve pulled this I am seriously considering to totally quit Facebook. I have another account.

    I had Google do the same thing to an old YouTube account a couple months back. Their computer decided that someone had stolen my password and were trying to access the account. There’s no way to give Google feedback especially online. You have to phone their business office. I hate calling long distance without a 1-800 number. So it sits for now. I plan to remove its email address.

    I’ve quit FB completely, although it will be two weeks (14 days) before my (other) account is fully deleted. They wanted photo ID again to let me download the content so I’ve let it go. Anyways, for others out there who want to delete their accounts, the page at FB is extremely hard to find. You need to be logged into FB to use the page. It’s at number 4 in the following link: http://www.wikihow.com/Permanently-Delete-a-Facebook-Account Just click on “this link”. Good instructions there. As for the other FB account, I’ve blocked its email addy. All I can do and they can keep it. I’m still on Twitter. So far they seem to have some good sense.

    Ok so recently I got locked out of my account, they asked for an id, in which I sent a photo of the only id card I have, but with the photo blocked. Now I don’t have the same name as my facebook one, due to not wanting to share my personal name with fb group(s). Later I got an email telling me they still won’t accept it, and now they have my info. I have stuff on that account that I don’t want to just disappear, I’ve been trying to contact facebook but of course I don’t get any help from them.

    Hello again. You may have noticed that places like FB and some others are asking for your cell or mobile numbers. Don’t give it to them. From that number they can learn who you really are and get your home address. It’s actually illegal in Canada and the USA to impersonate someone else online. So, the oldschool habit of being anonymous online doesn’t work like it used to. For my part I do not own a mobile/cell and they don’t accept hardlines. I often wish they’d realize that not everyone is cell happy. If you’ve been locked out of your FB account and you really don’t want to lose the information it contains you will most likely need to speak to a lawyer. Here’s a good article from 2014 about it: http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/i-asked-a-lawyer-how-facebooks-new-terms-will-affect-my-online-life-183

    after 5 years of use Facebook is forcing me to change my profile name they initially aproved!
    I registered a Facebook account back in 2011 using a nickname and I WAS ACCEPTED!
    Now after 5 years of use and after creating a net of contacts that know me by that name Facebook is forcing me to change it!
    It makes me sick to see that this company can do whatever they want!
    If my name wasn’t good it shouldn’t be accepted right from the beginning!
    Not now after all the work I had creating a network!
    The main question here is this one »» should this company have the right to force someone to change something they accepted right from the beginning and during 5 years??
    Some years ago Google tried to force users to use their real names but then changed their ideas and came to their senses. Facebook instead kept this stupid idea and had cases like Sister Roma, Salman Rushdie and many others!
    If they wanted Facebook to be a social network with only real names that should have been done right from the beginning.
    It’s a dictatorial attitude what this company is doing without no one fighting against this!
    1. accepted my name
    2. used it during 5 years

    AND NOW THEY COME AND FORCE ME TO CHANGE IT???

    And their support is incompetent taking days to solve issues that could be solved in minutes
    The ways people have to contact and complaint against this company are impossible to deal with!
    A bunch of automatized answers and no direct or live support!
    This company wants customers without having employers to give them support.
    They want revenues without costs!
    They run a business that couldn’t care less about its customers and users!

    You realise that all the stuff you post on Facebook belongs to them, not you? If you give them your cell number they now have your name and address. Currently, in Canada and the USA it’s illegal to misrepresent yourself online so the old way of anonymity is gone. When FB demanded my ID (which cannot be photocopied btw) I told them to take a hike. I shut down all my FB accounts and blocked them to my emails. Responding to them is useless. None of the communications they have given you have come from humans, only from a machine. Machines lack stuff like mercy. If you get locked out of your accounts, just move on. OR, try contacting the human aspects of FB: http://www.headquartersinfo.com/facebook-headquarters-information/

    Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Good advice if you trip and fall carrying eggs. Have more than one FB account using different legitimate names. Many people in the same communities such as school dorms and such have seperate accounts with FB on the same IP address. So, unless they are privy to all your private info then you can do it too. It’s not illegal. You’ll need multiple email addresses. However, if they ask for your ID or your cell number do NOT give it to them. If they close an account, then you need to be prepared to close and dump that one while you use your other ones. Piece of cake. Btw, it’s not a human who is blocking your account. It’s a computer program. You might try researching using Google what accounts get closed by FB and how to avoid having one. As for myself I chose to quit FB entirely. I have extra time now. I’m learning how to paint the old-fashioned way. Seems I have some talent too.

    Facebook has locked me out during mid of a comment conversation against a defrauding Photography School run by a Camera manufacturing company. The advertisement of the Camera company often appeared on Facebook “PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW”.

    Even after submission of Government IDs with photo, Name and Age proof for a number of times Facebook declares me below 13 years of age in-spite of age proof for 65 years old. They have put me in a great monetary loss.

    They say it themselves and hear what they say. Facebook authorities are behaving like a mad fellow and treat themselves as Government above Globe.

    It is a senseless act as a dictator on the Globe and work as a spy for someone they work for. Facebook steals personal information and identity proofs.

    In spite of several emails Facebook has stolen my personal ID. It has become a COMMRCIAL site rather than being social, collect information for Government, hack and block accounts during election period . It is totally illegal and Advertisement based site. I shall file a legal suit against illegal and unlawful act of Facebook authorities in court of legal action.

    I know you will say im mad but the following weird thing happened:

    1) I reported a lot of others for spamming, for hate speech etc
    2) naturally I got the attention of facebook employees, by reporting others….
    3) I had a lot of formant unplublished pages that i created but never developed. Now I saw crazy traces of visitors. How can unpublished pages have visitors?
    4) For a while I do nothing But the visitos keep coming back. I mean, every week I get notification that someone saw my page, even unpublished page:/ And pages that had no photos or info on them. By the way they wree not pages with any political content hate speech, im involved in fine arts so they were aobut promoting me as artist but i never developed them. So someone IN FACEBOOK decided he/ or she, likes to browse my personal data and personal artworkin my unpublished pages…..Great….
    5) I feel uncomfortable and decided to download my entire profile content and then delete my facebook profile.
    6) I proceed with the download, then next day I myself ask that my profile is deleted in special request.
    7) I get notification that unless I log back within a certain time, i will have my profile deleted indeed. So im given a last chance to keep it. I start pondering if i should….
    8) I decide to log in and keep my profile. but guess what im told: iM TOLD THAT I HAVE VIOLATED FACEBOOK’S POLICIES AND FOR THIS REASON MY PROFILE IS DELETED FOR EVER.

    Coincidence? I believe somoene within Facebook was stalking me! He or she kept coming back looking at everything i say and create in facebook and then when I myself decided to delete my profile, he/she got vindictive (as a typical stalker) for not having anymore access to my personal life, and he/she put this permanent delete in place to insult me should I want to keep my profile within the period of still being able to save it before permanent deletion.

      “How can unpublished pages have visitors?” Because your account had already be hacked. Someone figured out or discovered your password and discredited you to Facebook. Of course FB has hackers and stalkers. Welcome to the real world. At least you were able to download your content before it all went to hell. Get your computer checked for keyloggers and other forms of spyware or malware (malware is bad/criminal software). I would strongly suggest you also change ALL of your passwords. I know it’s a chore but it’s possible your computer has also been hacked.

        Hi, thanks very much for assuming that there is no way I could have discredited myself (haha) but I think I did. I was involved in so called ‘online campaigns of awareness” for example ,for animal rights, when things go ugly one animal activist turns against the other hence many people if not dozens reported my profile (im sure of this cause they threatened they would). And indeed I did not use my real name completely. I was surely not abiding with the law of facebook.

        I doubt anyone has hacked my facebook and I insist that a working person for facebook, who was called by the haters to take a look at my messages (flagged I guess) and at public opinions, he/she took the libery to also STALK me for months. Hence the hits in unpublished pages. Despite the reports against me my profile was intact for a year and i was not even asked to provide ID. But as I said above I felt very uneasy about the idea that a facebook employee is stalking me? Ok they told him/her so because of the reports against me but stalking is illegal no matter what.

        I think Facebook acts like an unethical corporation who doesn’t even have a decent product anymore. They constantly make enemies and think that they will always be number 1 network for socializing online. This is not certain. One can only think of a new facebook platform that somehow will be better then im sure millions will slowly be jumping onto the new social network.

        Its for me weird that nobody else came up with a very similar netowrk (except VK but thats Russian mainly) already!

    My account was locked today midway thru a comment on a friend’s page. They are asking for govt photo id. Why do I need to provide that? I am NOT a US citizen nor do I live in the US so what are they going to compare it to or confirm it with? I do NOT do selfies, comment on US politics, used any fake names nor have I violated any of their terms and conditions. I have used my real name for the entire time, I think it’s eight years, I’ve been on fb. Last night I made a comment on PokemonGo and got some stupid responses from some stupid players. One brought up my last name. Now i’m wondering if that idiot reported me or something. It will be absolutely stupid of Facebook to lock out a user who has been using it longer than the idiot that reported them, without even checking the post itself. Beside that, I can’t see why fb should ask me, a foreigner, for picture id especially since they wouldn’t kno what’s valid in my country or not. It’s really highly suspicious.

    Facebook has a program that randomly closes accounts and then sends you an email demanding that you identify yourself. Send them a copy of your driver’s license, birth certificate or other kind of identity card. That’s if you want them to know who you are and where you live. I know of a girl who did it and she was reinstated in about two weeks.

      Its advisable by many if you market yourself online or your business to use social platform with some reservation that one day they could delete all your work and your profile. As they seem to believe bots more than humans (Scary right?).

      You sould use social media only to direct people from them into your paid hosted website and ask people who are interested in your work to give you their emails address/subscribe to some newsletter you send. This way you will survive (have your contacts and your material) in case fartbook or any fartbook arbitrarily decides to mess with you and your livelyhood.

    I have seen thousands of other reports of people locked out of their accounts. You’ve done nothing wrong. Facebook doesn’t care about you. They want your ID because for them it’s money in the bank to have your real name and address. Their excuse is a law in USA and Canada (and also perhaps in UK) where you are not allowed to be anonymous or impersonate someone or something else online or off. Facebook has a program that roams around, randomly closing accounts, any account. If you want to keep your account you will have to provide them with what they want from you. I decided that this so-called “free service” wasn’t free at all. I quit FB completely. I don’t miss it.

        Why did you wait so long? You need to contact Facebook by email and send them proof of your identity. They will not accept anything less. It will take at least a week to get back on. Next time do not base your business on Facebook. You own nothing on it. Nothing. In the meantime search for other online ways to promote your business. I am a retired person. I don’t work for FB. I am also no longer a member of FB. I quit because they were a huge waste of my time. Thank goodness I backed up everything I submitted to it. Hope it works out well for you.

    Facebook is locking us out first! Then asking for ID. It’s not for those who are “locked out” for some unkown reason!!!!

      You understand that Facebook is not a human being? A program regularly checks user accounts and randomly locks them without warning. You can only re-open your account by submitting official government photo identification to them. You do not send the actual physical documents — just copies of them. They need your real name, address, signature, photo and phone/cell numbers. They are backed by a law in USA, UK and Canada. You cannot misrepresent yourself online. No more anonymity. You can be anonymous but you are breaking a law. I see that law as “kinda stupid” considering online ID theft. Please understand that I do not work for Facebook. I just help people where I can. I got locked out by them too so I quit FB completely. I wish EVERYONE would quit FB and put them out of business. Ah well, heck will freeze over etc.

    I always felt maybe naively that the silicon valley was based on libertarian principles and that such inquisitorial demands would not occur on a website like Facebook.

    I have been a member of Facebook since 06 and have always used my real name and shared more information that I should have (date of birth, university, my share of pictures, location…).That being said facebook disabled my account and the only way it can be reinstated is if I submit a government issued ID, which is where I draw the line.

    I do not believe that FB has any right (neither legal and certainly not moral) to ask for any official ID as proof of identity. They are going down a dangerous path and I would rather not be on FB than submit a copy of my passport to a company that has no business having it.

    My account is also blocked. The problem is that I ceated my Facebook page with a nickname 10 years ago, before they required users to use their real name. Also, my page picture is a manga character… I am agitated that my account was locked for security reasons and that I need to send an ID for the picture and the name. Even if I can mask important information, I am unwilling to send such document online. I lost a 10 year old account with all its content and contacts!

    I’ve done some further research on the laws surrounding this debacle with Facebook. I am not a lawyer and some of the things I said on Dec 23, 2016 are not as accurate as I’d like. There’s no laws about e-personation at the federal level in the USA. Being anonymous or unidentified online is not a crime. Some States in the USA have laws against e-personation. I found a video on Youtube that could help your understanding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWnmzIswOQY

    I also found an article about this on Wired: https://www.wired.com/2015/06/facebook-real-name-policy-problems/

    I am a Canadian citizen so would not be able to bring suit against FB in the USA. Have any of you considered bringing a class-action suit against them? Rather than just whining about how unfair it is. It’s illegal for a police person (in USA) to demand your ID without probable cause. So, how come FB can ask for it?

      This is not the government asking for your ID, FB is a publicly traded corporation, its no different than Exxon or General Motors demanding your picture ID.

      And there is no way they will delete your ID after they have reviewed it, not a chance.

      I shall not send my picture ID to them, sorry.

    Yesterday FB suddenly asked for ID verification. I complied on my iphone. Then I found a fb toll free number for help which turns out to be a third party not associated with FB. They are called “Printers Tech Fz LLC” and they do have a website. Says they are in Saudi Arabia but they claim that is where their payments go but they are based in the US – New York.

    They said my FB account was suddenly active in Russia – I live in the USA. That is why FB ask for ID. Said the Russians hacked into my account and into my home computer and iPhone using the software “Torpig”. Now after $500!!! and three hours they “cleaned” all of my devices. I did get an email from FB giving me a case number for my ID verification. Well after cleaned I logged back into FB and they had notified my IN FB that my ID was good before Printers Tech even started their cleaning. Was I hacked or just scammed – maybe but I’m definitely out $500!!

    due to the number of disable and closure, I email facebook about that,

    FACEBOOK STAFF TOLD ME, when locked my account I give them identity card.
    they said, they are facebook head, they can really lock anyone up anytime they want to

    if they think you are fake person, they just lock you without notice.
    means, even if this time you give FB ID card, your account will also be disabled EVEN IN SHORTER TIME THAN THE LAST DISABLED.

    your account is disabled 6 months to 1 yr after you register, then 3-6 months then 2-3 months and 1-2 month then days.

    sometimes even hours, your account is disabled

    it’s facebook staff allow to do this, without contact the user.

    even if you open back account, they can even lock you again in seconds.
    so not use facebook is the only solution to avoid such hassle/pressure/stress

    I used FB to invest in my business through ads but now my account was currently blocked for no apparent reason. I’ve paid for their ads numerous times. I’ve followed their “rules” but still get blocked. It’s a good thing I had other social accounts that’s worth investing my time and money. This is depressing.

    You do realize that Facebook itself is PROUD of the fact it is made up of hackers? Their address is One Hacker Way in “Menlo, California.”
    I recieved the same notice. I refuse to comply.
    Yes, this stinks of a phishing attack!
    I refuse to send them ID of any sort OR my phone number. Their policies do not suit me at all. I refuse to use my “real name” especially associated with an ID of any kind online, it only makes good sense.
    I have followed the rules: ‘When you put information on the internet do not use your real name, your real date of birth.
    ‘When you are putting information on social networking sites don’t put real combinations of information, because it can be used against you.’..
    for many years.
    ALL Facebook users should follow those two simple rules and not give the site real names OR any sort of usable telephone number or address!

    The whole thing about Facebook requiring ID is a HOAX. Check it out at Snopes.com
    http://www.snopes.com/computer/facebook/facebookid.asp
    Most likely it’s a phishing attempt for identity theft. It’s also likely your account has been hacked which is why they can send you emails about it. I decided to quit FB after reading about the scams on it here: http://www.thatsnonsense.com/category/facebook/
    and “Nads” problems here: https://www.wired.com/2015/06/facebook-real-name-policy-problems/
    Quit them, and tell your friends to quit. There are alternatives: http://www.adweek.com/digital/albizu-garcia-gain-guest-post-tired-of-facebook-here-are-6-up-and-coming-alternatives/

    I have posted no lies. Hoaxes and hackings have been done against Facebook and their users in the past. I have done my research. Snopes is a reputable site that investigates false news and hoaxes online. I am aware that FB has been actually closing people’s accounts simply because they can. JohninHim claims there are no running legal cases against FB. You have not checked anything online. That’s obvious. Take a look at the following links. Try using a search engine and learn more.

    Canada: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/supreme-court-gives-thumbs-up-to-privacy-lawsuit-against-facebook/article35444477/

    Europe/Ireland: http://europe-v-facebook.org/EN/en.html

    It seems that FB is in quite a lot of legal trouble. My own contract lawyer told me some years ago that EULAs do not hold up in court. They cannot break any law either. FB cannot force you to have your case heard in California, for example. Please READ the articles at the above links, and not just churn out the usual negative rhetoric. Thank you.

      That is what FB has done to us, here most of the users.
      I am not claim that you are lying here, but only target on FB. But if you are part of FB, that is another case.

      2.Facebook has done this to me, its user since almost its beginning, and asked my real ID and blocked my account there.
      If you say FB is not asking us to provide our government IDs, then whom is behind all of this ? why FB cannot fix it, AND just let it continues for almost 4 or 5 years like this ?

      You or FB claim that FB is also an victim of hoax, or hacking, are you doubt your IQ or all of the users‘ here ?

      3.Whatever other legal case or hoax against FB, is not my concern now, but the ID request issue.

      FB is negative rhetoric media now, and running by Jihad and commie inside. That is my negative .

      I am prepared to participate any legal actions in this ID issue with FB.

    Facebook suspended my account for pretending to be someone else.
    I had no photo ID at the time so uploaded three bits of mail, which they would not accept, next I sent my Birth Certificate they still would not give back my account! when I received my new photo driving licence in the mail I thought this would be the end of it and I would get my account back! However, on sending it to them they replied back to me saying someone else had provided the same documents to them and they now required another different government issued photo ID!!!
    I refused and I am still locked out of my account.

    Having read some of these stories I am now worried…

    I would also donate to any legal case against Facebook!

    I opened My facebook account , but was not allowed in, because My user name is The same i have used this last thirteen years) is suddenly not a “real name”.
    No way am i going to send anyone My passport, license, or any other government document, the only people that should be allowed this information on demand are the respective authorities dealing within a specific set of guidelines, and it was NEVER supposed to be uploaded by way of picture to anyone outside of such authority with the right to demand such document.
    I will not bend to the will of the demand, because i feel it is an unsafe practice to provide such information to anyone who demands it, for their “free” service, if personal information is the new price of “free” in today’s Facebook.
    I will pursue the use of other platforms , there are still some decent ones out there, say,” ‘Ello”, for instance that allow a person to promote an online identity, follow the rules of the social media as set out by the participants.
    I wouldn’t send the guys that sold Russia ads a pittance of information about my personal numerical associations, and physical address that should only be privy to the relevant people in question. facebook is only as relevant as people allow it to be- and so, say Bye, Mark Zuckerburg, You just permenantly lost a statistic to send You clickbait ads to .
    I broke no rules,, and will miss My friends. But really, that is a raw deal and i was mislead about the freedom of speech when FaceBook now demands one minute that they need verifiable information and is in the process of getting drug through a congressional investigation for facilitating the Russian fiasco regarding the Presidential Campaign now wanting My personal information. No Thanks, Mark.

    Just wanted to comment to say that this shit is still happening. I was using a pseudonym because it’s the name I use for gaming, and the page was used primarily to keep in touch with other gamers who only know the pseudonym. I wasn’t harming anyone. I wasn’t impersonating anyone. I wasn’t trolling/bullying. Yet, late last month, I was required to submit government issued identification to unlock my account. Obviously, I can’t submit identification with a name that isn’t my legal name on it, nor do I feel I should. So I didn’t. I was given ZERO chance to make copies of my photos I had on the account (secondary purpose of the account was photo storage, as devices die/are lost/are stolen/need factory resets). Several of the subjects of the photos are now deceased, which of course makes getting replacements bloody well impossible. I researched, and it’s real. Facebook actually does this. I made my account before any “real name” requirement, BTW. I was never advised of the change. I’ve lost contact with several friends now, in addition to the irreplaceable photographs. Attempts to contact someone, ANYONE, so I can have maybe 24 hours of access in order to make my friends aware of the situation and obtain my photos are ignored or answered with the most unhelpful robot drivel I’ve ever seen. This should be, but is not, illegal!
