Facebook Locks Out Thousands, Now Wants Photo ID.

More like Hundreds of Thousands.

Facebook now Communists.

Option 1

We will accept any government-issued ID that contains your name and date of birth. Examples include:

Birth certificate
Driver’s license
Marriage certificate
Official name change paperwork
Personal or vehicle insurance card
Non-driver’s government ID (ex: disability, SNAP card, national ID card)
Green card, residence permit or immigration papers
Voter ID card

Option 2

You can provide two different forms of ID from the following list (ex: a bank statement and a library card, but not two bank statements). The names on your IDs must match each other, and one of the IDs must include a photo or date of birth that matches the information on your profile.

Below are some examples of IDs we’ll accept:

Bank statement
Bus card
Credit card
Employment verification
Library card
Magazine subscription stub
Medical record
Membership ID (ex: pension card, union membership, work ID, professional ID)
Paycheck stub
School card
School record
Social Security card
Utility bill
Yearbook photo (actual scan or photograph of the page in your yearbook)

Option 3

If you don’t have an ID that shows your authentic name as well as your photo or date of birth, you can provide two forms of ID from Option 2 above, and then provide a government ID that includes a date of birth or photo that matches the information on your profile. We won’t add the name or other information from the government ID to your account.


Bank Statements, Paycheck Stubs, Utility Bills???

Are these people out of their F’N minds.

Drivers licenses, marriage certificates. Who do these people think they are?

Never had I ever been into FB to begin with. My name is my business, my privacy. I write under my real life nick name of Longshot. Bestowed upon my head from a dear friend in 1975 from where I ended up working most of my life.

I always thought people were nuts to put all of their business onto the Internet. Real names, plastering their pictures everywhere and In reality it has turned out to be not only disastrous but deadly for some.

Yes FB wars have become much too real and people have been murdered over something as a simple post some deranged mind took too seriously or misunderstood altogether.

Now what in the hell would I ever want to sign up under my real name?

My friends know who Longshot is.

So now Facebook has posted this with those who have been signed up with their given previous choice log in names.


Please Change Your Name

It looks like the name on your Facebook account may not be your authentic name. We ask everyone to use the name they go by in real life so friends know who they’re connecting with.
What names are allowed on Facebook?

If this is the name you use in your everyday life, we would like to work with you to verify the name that best represents your identity. We accept a number of documents to allow you to verify your everyday name.


Well I have news for you Facebook,

Longshot is used everyday by my friends in-which to Identify Me and I certainly see no sane reason that I should sign up, sign in with any other name and you certainly are not going to get my Drivers License or Bank Statement.

What are you? Nuts, Stupid, Big Brother or just plain fools?

I for one am not. I can live without you Thank You. Hope other with AUTHENTIC names dump you, your stock and anything connected to you. 24 hours after this is posted if I cannot log back in and be UNlocked, I will gladly remove the FB button off of this blog.

It’s not like I get paid for writing and you contribute anything to me personally.

Mark Zuckerberg and his Facebook can get Fucked.

Accept This

Fuck You


This is the United States of America not China or N. Korea.

Privacy and Freedom of Speech is mine!

Je Suis Charlie!!!


EDIT: Jan. 23, 2015 3:17AM

Was asked to leave FB button to allow this blog to be shared onto that site to inform people who may be next victim of being locked out, as 99% of the people this is happening to are those actually using Real names. Only reason I’ll put it back.

Do Not Succumb and give out your personal business or ID of any kind. FB did cancel out my account, I haven’t lost any sleep over it.

Recent Video is no bull since that is what is happening since Jan. 1, 2015. New Terms of Service ALL had to click onto to be there.

Video is worth watching and is the truth, I know they did it to me.



As if they don’t know enough about those logging in and using FB.

This is under PRIVACY. Whose?


Data Use Policy → Information we receive about you
Information we receive and how it is used

Information we receive about you

We receive a number of different types of information about you, including: Your information

Your information is the information that’s required when you sign up for the site, as well as the information you choose to share.

Registration information:

When you sign up for Facebook, you are required to provide information such as your name, email address, birthday, and gender. In some cases, you may be able to register using other information, like your telephone number.

Information you choose to share:

Your information also includes the information you choose to share on Facebook, such as when you post a status update, upload a photo, or comment on a friend’s story.

It also includes the information you choose to share when you communicate with us, such as when you contact us using an email address, or when you take an action, such as when you add a friend, like a Page or a website, add a place to your story, use our contact importers, or indicate you are in a relationship.

Your name, profile pictures, cover photos, gender, networks, username and User ID are treated just like information you choose to make public. Learn more.

Your birthday allows us to do things like show you age-appropriate content and advertisements.

Information others share about you

We receive information about you from your friends and others, such as when they upload your contact information, post a photo of you, tag you in a photo or status update, or at a location, or add you to a group.

When people use Facebook, they may store and share information about you and others that they have, such as when they upload and manage their invites and contacts.

Other information we receive about you

We also receive other types of information about you:
We receive data about you whenever you use or are running Facebook, such as when you look at another person’s timeline, send or receive a message, search for a friend or a Page, click on, view or otherwise interact with things, use a Facebook mobile app, or make purchases through Facebook.

When you post things like photos or videos on Facebook, we may receive additional related data (or metadata), such as the time, date, and place you took the photo or video.

We receive data from or about the computer, mobile phone, or other devices you use to install Facebook apps or to access Facebook, including when multiple users log in from the same device. This may include network and communication information, such as your IP address or mobile phone number, and other information about things like your internet service, operating system, location, the type (including identifiers) of the device or browser you use, or the pages you visit. For example, we may get your GPS or other location information so we can tell you if any of your friends are nearby, or we could request device information to improve how our apps work on your device.

We receive data whenever you visit a game, application, or website that uses Facebook Platform or visit a site with a Facebook feature (such as a social plugin), sometimes through cookies. This may include the date and time you visit the site; the web address, or URL, you’re on; technical information about the IP address, browser and the operating system you use; and, if you are logged in to Facebook, your User ID.

Sometimes we get data from our affiliates or our advertising partners, customers and other third parties that helps us (or them) deliver ads, understand online activity, and generally make Facebook better. For example, an advertiser may tell us information about you (like how you responded to an ad on Facebook or on another site) in order to measure the effectiveness of – and improve the quality of – ads.

As described in “How we use the information we receive” we also put together data from the information we already have about you, your friends, and others, so we can offer and suggest a variety of services and features. For example, we may make friend suggestions, pick stories for your News Feed, or suggest people to tag in photos. We may put together your current city with GPS and other location information we have about you to, for example, tell you and your friends about people or events nearby, or offer deals to you in which you might be interested. We may also put together data about you to serve you ads or other content that might be more relevant to you.

When we get your GPS location, we put it together with other location information we have about you (like your current city). But we only keep it until it is no longer useful to provide you services, like keeping your last GPS coordinates to send you relevant notifications.

Public information

When we use the phrase “public information” (which we sometimes refer to as “Everyone information”), we mean the information you choose to make public, as well as information that is always publicly available.

Sometimes you will not be able to select an audience when you post something (like when you write on a Page’s wall or comment on a news article that uses our comments plugin). This is because some types of stories are always public stories. As a general rule, you should assume that if you do not see a sharing icon, the information will be publicly available.

When others share information about you, they can also choose to make it public.

Information that is always publicly available

The types of information listed below are always publicly available, and they are treated just like information you decided to make public:


This helps your friends and family find you. If you are uncomfortable sharing your real name, you can always delete your account.

Profile Pictures and Cover Photos:

These help your friends and family recognize you. If you are uncomfortable making any of these photos public, you can always delete them. Unless you delete them, when you add a new profile picture or cover photo, the previous photo will remain public in your profile picture or cover photo album.

Usernames and User IDs

Usernames and User IDs are the same thing – a way to identify you on Facebook. A User ID is a string of numbers and a username generally is some variation of your name. With your username, you get a custom link (a Facebook URL, such as http://www.facebook.com/username) to your timeline that you can give out to people or post on external websites.

If someone has your Username or User ID, they can use it to access information about you through the facebook.com website. For example, if someone has your Username, they can type facebook.com/Username into their browser and see your public information as well as anything else you’ve let them see. Similarly, someone with your Username or User ID can access information about you through our APIs, such as our Graph API. Specifically, they can access your public information, along with your age range, language and country.


If you do not want your information to be accessible to Platform applications, you can turn off all Platform applications from your Privacy Settings. If you turn off Platform you will no longer be able to use any games or other applications until you turn Platform back on. For more information about the information that apps receive when you visit them, see Other websites and applications.


Your Facebook email address includes your public username like so: username@facebook.com. People can use your Facebook email address to send you messages and anyone in a message conversation can reply to it.

How we use the information we receive

We use the information we receive about you in connection with the services and features we provide to you and other users like your friends, our partners, the advertisers that purchase ads on the site, and the developers that build the games, applications, and websites you use. For example, in addition to helping people see and find things that you do and share, we may use the information we receive about you:

Granting us permission “UNDER NEW TERMS AND USE AS OF JAN. 1, 2015 ALL HAD TO CLICK ACCEPT” to use your information not only allows us to provide Facebook as it exists today, but it also allows us to provide you with innovative features and services we develop in the future that use the information we receive about you in new ways.

While you are allowing us to use the information we receive about you, you always own all of your information. Your trust is important to us, which is why we don’t share information we receive about you with others unless we have:

received your permission; “UNDER NEW TERMS AND USE AS OF JAN. 1, 2015 ALL HAD TO CLICK ACCEPT”

given you notice, such as by telling you about it in this policy; or

removed your name and any other personally identifying information from it.

Of course, for information others share about you, they control how it is shared.

We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. For certain categories of data, we may also tell you about specific data retention practices.

We may enable access to public information that has been shared through our services.

We store data for as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you and others, including those described above. Typically, information associated with your account will be kept until your account is deleted. For certain categories of data, we may also tell you about specific data retention practices.

We may enable access to public information that has been shared through our services.

We are able to suggest that your friend tag you in a picture by scanning and comparing your friend’s pictures to information we’ve put together from your profile pictures and the other photos in which you’ve been tagged. If this feature is enabled for you, you can control whether we suggest that another user tag you in a photo using the “Timeline and Tagging” settings. Learn more at: https://www.facebook.com/help/tag-suggestions



Deactivating your account puts your account on hold. Other users will no longer see your timeline, but we do not delete any of your information. Deactivating an account is the same as you telling us not to delete any information because you might want to reactivate your account at some point in the future. You can deactivate your account on your account settings page.

Your friends will still see you listed in their list of friends while your account is deactivated.


When you delete your account, it is permanently deleted from Facebook. It typically takes about one month to delete an account, but some information may remain in backup copies and logs for up to 90 days. You should only delete your account if you are sure you never want to reactivate it. You can delete your account here. Learn more.

Certain information is needed to provide you with services, so we only delete this information after you delete your account. Some of the things you do on Facebook aren’t stored in your account, like posting to a group or sending someone a message (where your friend may still have a message you sent, even after you delete your account). That information remains after you delete your account.


They have all this info on users. Our Computer ID’s, your Phones ID, when you use Phone your exact location where you sit. Etc…Etc…Etc…

Yet they still want more.

And they wonder why Thousands refuse to want to have their Real Name listed.

Sorry FB just isn’t worth all this. They have enough info on everybody, they won’t get my name and Gov. Photo Identification or any other type of documents they want listed in options at the start of blog.

How much of a fool do you have to be.

  1. I was one of their “lock outs” …as were many of my modeling friends. We as models tend to use pseudo names so we don’t have stalkers knocking on our front doors. If ANYONE thinks for one minute that this is a joke – I’m here to tell them they are dead wrong. I took screenshots, uploaded them to my photos and made it public. People need to wake up because this is very much REAL!

    • I use a pseudo name not because I look good or anything, but because it’s the smart thing to do online. FB can go get bent! Late reply, sorry, but I just received a name review from them and was asked to submit ID.

      I’ll be blogging this for sure.

  2. Yeah, they just locked me out yesterday from my real account. Now I have a fake account that they haven’t said anything about. I am not giving them my i.d. I will just access facebook through my fake account. I think Facebook may be shooting themselves in the foot with this one.

  3. As someone who was stalked, broken into, and assaulted in my own home, there is no frickin way I’m posting my real name on the internet or giving Facebook my identity for them to steal or use in their data bank. Nor am I giving them credit card information for them to steal. Really!!!!? They just blocked me again. Didn’t like my original name, so I changed it. After another year or so, they don’t like the updated name they had approved. Effers. Screw Facebook!

  4. I’m experiencing this BS right now! I told FB to just delete my acct, but they won’t. I’m blocked so I cannot delete my own account. I told them I do not wish to get email notifications of FB posts etc any longer and please just delete my account! It’s extortion, harassment, total BS, and we need a class action lawsuit. Any ideas how I can get my FB acct deleted without sending personal ID documents?

  5. Well, I have a Facebook account for the specific reason of having a documented history of my existence online. I don’t actually do much there. In fact, one reason I got my account (in 2015, so it’s not even brand new) is that I want to get promotional offers from companies like Saint Hubert (a restaurant chain). I’m not even sure when this happened, because I’m not on Facebook every day, but the oldest undeleted email from Facebook saying that I have a message is from January 9, 2016. Yesterday (January 10), I sent them a copy of my health card, which includes a picture. That (or rather than their confirmation message) was 13 hours ago.

    Why in the world would they think my name is fake? This is me:

    Facebook chose me for no reason, maybe because of my last name. Are they banning the whole population of Moldavia? I’m not from their, but I have ancestors there and the name exists in Romania/Moldavia/Bessarabia.

    Suck it, Facebook, I exist!

  6. They just locked mine. I guess because of my name that was in Arabic alphabets to reduce my search-ability. I’m a programmer/IT/BI guy and I’m aware of lot “scary” things about Internet. My profile had minimal/pseudo information about me; just enough to be recognized by friends and family and I only had 60 people on my list. I had also unsubscribed for all targeted ads. Never had their app on my phone.
    I have sent them my real name ” F$#$ YOU” and 3 photo IDs of my middle finger and then I created a new account and slowly adding my 60 peeps.

  7. Great post! I was just asked to submit an ID for my name as well. While, I don’t go by my pseudo name in real life, it’s really the smart thing to do online. Especially with people that are quick to dox you and get you fired if you don’t toe the PC line.

    I’m going to have to make a blog post about this too! I hope more people would voice their outrage instead of just submitting everything like sheep.

    • I am not keeping a Facebook account for the purpose of hiding and communicating a lot. On the contrary, I want to have a minimal but not completely nonexistent record of my existence online. I’m not accepting friends I don’t know or actually posting messages about what I’m doing. Not unless I don’t mind if the whole world finds out about that, so I usually just don’t post. Similarly, I’m on LinkedIn too even though I am not looking for work. I do, on a very rare occasion, contact a company like the bank directly if there is a problem, because they may be more likely to solve it than when I call them. I do call first, for example, and don’t post really confidential details. It’s just like being in the phone book in the old days. I want to be there but won’t publish my whole life story.

    This is what facebook has come down to..and its why it will collapse. What they are doing is disgusting and cannot be legal. To ask for private gov’t id for what?..i use fb..better yet..i used fb, to play games and chat with two people periodically..this is nothing but an attempt to take your info and rsell it to 3rd parties! Cant wait till the site is closed down. 6 accounts in a row, including 2 i had for 8 years all closed and requesting gov’t id. They have killed this platform..i for one will never be back..keep your garbage suckerburg!

  9. Now, they have deactivated my account without telling me. My ID was accepted and my account was reinstated back in January 2018. Since then, they kept locking my account from time to time and sending me an email saying “Did you log into Facebook from somewhere new?”. That had happened even before, but it kept happening with increasing frequency. I always waited them out. It tended to last for 8 days, so it must have happened automatically.

    Last time my account was unlocked after this happened, it was on April 9, 2018. Nevertheless, the same day, when I tried to log in, I hit a “roadblock”saying that I have been logged out of Facebook and to send them a picture “if I want to get back on Facebook”. They said “picture” and not ID. The picture looked like me. Nevertheless, after waiting that long, I finally tried to log on a couple of days ago and the account had been deactivated. I had the opportunity to “appeal”, but I had no idea it was deactivated.

    This time, I sent the same copy of my ID as in January. I have received no response. There was also some wording in the text about appealing mentioning their community rules, as if I had done something wrong when the fact is that I have kept a low profile but was not totally inactive. I used to log in. I almost used Facebook more to deal with the Facebook team or see that I’m locked out and wait them out than to post, but I did not do anything wrong either. I do not appreciate being “protected” by constantly being harassed until Facebook themselves have stolen my account.

  10. Right on, brother man. Sharing on Twitter and on Google Plus.

  11. viper6188

    Yup… People are being convicted of crimes, stalked, hacked, and blackmailed on FB…They are in court for selling private information, and conducting pychological brain manipulation experiments. They ain’t EVER getting my ID….I got by without FB for 40 years of my life…Pretty sure, I can make it another 40…
