Facebook name warning

Anyone out there who’s using Facebook using a name that doesn’t look like a name needs to be aware that their account will be suspended as soon as they get found out. Just the other day this happened to a leading ME campaigner who was using a slightly disguised version of his email address as his Facebook name (although the address did contain his real name). There is speculation that someone might have complained about him, but the real reason is probably nothing more than this. A couple of years ago the same happened to one of my Muslim blogging friends who was using a name that couldn’t possibly be a name, even though we all recognised her by it.

Of course, you don’t have to use your real name; you can use a pseudonym and I’m sure many do. It just has to be a name.
