The other day I go to log in and get this message:
"Please Verify Your Identity
It looks like your account might not be real. Facebook is a community where people share and interact using their real identities.Facebook does not allow accounts that:
- Pretend to be someone else
- Use a fake name
- Don't represent a real person
In order to regain access to your account, please complete the following security check to verify your identity and help keep Facebook secure."
There's a Continue button right under that message. You click on that and it says to enter your phone number and they'll send a code. So I entered my number and waited for the code. And waited. I'm still waiting for the code like 48 minutes later. So I've clicked on "I Need Help" and I get this useless nonsense here:
If you're unable to verify your account using a mobile phone number, you can submit a request to verify your account using your government-issued ID."
Scan my driver's license and email it to you? Really, Facebook? Yeah, I'm not doing any of that. I actually looked up "making a Facebook page for your site" and followed the instructions on the proper way to set up a page for your site, so I'm not sure what happened to cause this. So if any fellow blog/site owners have encountered this and have had luck fixing it, please let me know how you did it.
