Facebook think I'm an impostor!

I have an identity crisis.

I had a message yesterday from Facebook to say that my account had been disabled. The standard online message says this is either for a serious of small misdemeanours or one 'egregious' breach of the rules. I had no idea what I might have done, so I messaged them to query and have been told that my site is a fake and that it is a breach of their rules not to give a genuine first name and last name. They say that their decision is final and that my account will not be re-activated! Given that I've been one of the main evangelists for Facebook at Westminster, this is, to say the least, frustrating. Also, the thought of starting again and re-contacting my 2,500+ friends doesn't thrill me...

So my Christmas quiz question is - how do I prove to Facebook that I am who I say I am?!

After all, I have a strong suspicion that the Facebook site of Queen Elizabeth I is not entirely genuine, but that seems to have escaped the notice of the censors....

UPDATE - my friends have kindly started a Facebook group to get me readmitted - please visit and join here!

You could invite them to dinner on the terrace. That impresses everyone.

Andy Mayer said...

Hmmm, but is this the real Steve Webb MP, or a cunning imposter who blogs under his name...

Ryan said...

People who are still on Facebook, should join the new group Steve Webb is real!

Jonny Wright said...

I suppose you could set up a future Facebook account, if you decide to get one, using your parliamentary email address. That ought to convince them. If I remember right, you were on a regional network before, rather than the UK Parliament network?

Tut, tut. You should stick to Myspace:)-

That's incredible. I met "Steve" once in Parliament, and again at the party conference. To discover now that he is some kind of imposter, voting in Parliament on behalf of UK citizens, is truly astonishing. Is he not really a professor either? Maybe he's a robot or something! To think, I even had my photograph taken with him. Presumably this will be on News at Ten?

You could ask the home office for a prototype identity card :)

Get yourself a LiveJournal instead Steve, like the smart kids in the cultural elite do.

Andy said...

How do we know that's the real Facebook and not an imposter?

Hmm, thinking further about it. Now that you have been outed as an imposter I should blogger asking them to take your blog down.

Steve's Facebook profile has just come back up. Let's hope it stays that way!

Sam said...

I know people this has happened to here in Bangor, and it's actually quite traumatic for people when they're being challenged by faceless chaps for arbitrary reasons.

Good to see you're back on FB, Steve.

Well, this is terrible. Facebook needs to be stopped. There is an equivalent service run by google which somehow seems fairer. If you still need to use Facebook just create a new account. It’s the easiest way, you won’t be breaching terms and conditions because you only have one account working.

The other method is through their telephone and address.

The Google equivalent is called Orkut. Maybe it pays to join several community systems rather than one as a back up.

Let it be a lesson for all!

I don't know how your case is different from mine, but I got banned not long ago too, why because my name doesn't sound real. I made a new account and fought back. I actually won and got them to apologize. What do you mean I’m an imposter faking myself, just because my name is not common doesn't make me fictional? So I got them to allow me to transfer stuff from the deleted account to the new one. I also asked them to allow me to change the email address I used for the second one to the first one because I use that more. I also got all my notes, photos, and all the groups I was in and everything transferred to the new, but that was only my choice. I could've taken the old one back, but I chose the new one. Anyways I think you should actually email the facebook staff about this. They do this to soooooo many people, it’s ridiculous. Anyways you should contact them and let them know that you have people that can prove you are real. I asked all my friends to email them, but it wasn’t necessary, because I told them I’m going to ask my friends to prove I’m real, after a few messages they asked me to ask everyone to stop emailing and supporting me, because the were going to return my account. they apologized and told that if I ever have problem I’ll let them know, and they would fix it, so I did, I wasn't going to pass this opportunity, I made sure that everything from the old account was transferred to the knew because they allowed me to transfer stuff, also I got my email changed and I got all the other things I wanted and also with every email about the changes, apology after apology. It was nice seeing the apology all the time.
