The FaceBook ban on peoples not using their birth given, legal names has caught up with me.
Two months ago an acquaintance of mine warned me about FB blocking people from using their service if they didn’t use their ‘real’/legal name. Being Black Coffee Poet on FB (both as a personal account and an FB page) has me violating FBs new legal name policy.
If I want to continue using my account I have to scan some legal ID with my real name. To that I say, “Hell NO!”.
As of yesterday I have been blocked. No access to my personal account or my page.
Legally, in the FB sense of being ‘legal’ (their rules), I am supposed to be allowed to run a page as the one I have: the Black Coffee Poet page. Pages do not need to be under a ‘real’/legal name.
Being that I’m blocked from both accounts, FB is BREAKING their own rules.
I have no way of contacting FB so I’m no longer on FaceBook having me not be in contact with almost 3000 FB friends.
It’s Twitter time!
I’ve been procrastinating on learning how to use Twitter. Now is the time.
