Facebook bans weird names

Also Blocks Bugmenot. com!

In this age of heightning security risks in every form, in everything we do online, Facebook has decided to come down on users with awkward names. Facebook has gone on a spree to ban users who do not use their usual names. Facebook can apparently do this without any issues unless you show them your identification proof. Facebook has been even more paranoid now and has been banning users for posting too much, too often and having too many contacts on their contact list. Some noted writers and artists have fallen prey to this practice and they aren’t pleased. Hiroda Yoda an author from Japan, Rowena Gay from New Zealand and a designer by the name of Beta Yee were some of the people to get banned. Facebook says that it wants people to give authentic information about themselves online.

 

Facebook also started blocking any content related to Bugmenot.com — a site dedicated to giving users anonymous user IDs and passwords. A day after they blocked it, annoyed readers on Facebook struck back and Facebook quickly unblocked the content soon after.

Facebook was also said to block content to do with Wadja.com, another social networking site.
