Re: Just tried to sign up for facebook and they are forcing me to give a mobile phone number
Hi,

You were asked to confirm who you are because our security systems thought you may not be using your real identity with this account or that you may have multiple accounts. If you’ve already tried to log in at www.facebook.com and followed the instructions to confirm your identity, but weren’t able to complete the process, we’ll need to see other proof of your identity.

Since you did not fill out the correct contact form, here’s how to proceed:

1. Use a scanner or take a digital photo of a government-issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license or passport), which shows your full first and last name and date of birth.
2. Reply directly to this email and attach the image of your ID to the message.
3. We will confirm that your ID and account information match. As soon as we verify your identity we’ll delete the image of your ID.


Please send an image showing proper identification right away so we can help you get back into your Facebook account. Please note that we will not be able to process your request unless you have submitted the proper identification. Additionally, not submitting proper identification will result in your request being denied.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

If you have any further questions about this process, please visit our Help Center at the following address:

Thank you for your patience,
The Facebook Team

Nope. I tried. The email I posted from them above is clear. I either provide them with ID proving my name is the same as the sign up, or they don't let me sign up. If I had a mobile phone they wanted the number so they could text me.

So either way they have the user's mobile to track them OR they have not only your full name but your ID number.

They are simply trying to end the days of internet anonymity. It's their agenda to track you and they aren't hiding it.

PEOPLE WHO USE FACEBOOK AND THINK IT's NECESSARY = koolaid

I don't need the shit. I tried to sign up so I could see my friend's page (he is from High School). But it's not important enough.

Re: Just tried to sign up for facebook and they are forcing me to give a mobile phone number
I made an account under a fake name a year or two ago, which I barely use, they never asked me for identification, and I bypass the "give us your phone number" page every time I log in (I never stay logged in on there).

Wait, now I remember, I made an account under a different fake name just a week or two ago, for a different purpose, and they never asked me for this. I just went ahead and made the account.

A lot of times you can bypass these things. I got a cell phone for the first time and they said "create an account to enjoy our features" etc. and gave me a big page of every piece of information to fill out, I scrolled all the way to the bottom and it gave the option "skip this step" and I was able to register the phone without giving my name or address or anything. Not that they don't know who I am a hundred other ways, but I was not required to fork it over to activate the phone.

^^ this

you don't need to give your phone number to anyone, in fact you shouldn't.

is that so fucking difficult? just put up an email account and username.... you can adjust your security preferences, it's just safe as everything else, you only show what you want and for who you want

Re: Just tried to sign up for facebook and they are forcing me to give a mobile phone number
Ok, check out my story:
I was on fb a couple years ago as I thought it was a good way to connect with old friends and promote my music and band. One day about a year ago I was locked out of my account. When trying to log in, I got a message that said-
Your account has been accessed by someone in Santa Cruz, Ca.- Is this you?
I replied NO and followed the links to reset the PW.
Didn`t work.
Tried several times to delete my acct and nope. ITS STILL THERE.
WHAT A WASTE OF TIME.
SO, I TRIED TO START A NEW ONE with a band name, and got this:
The name you chose is not acceptable blah blah...
They know if you are not using a real name?

Buy a throw-away cell phone. Do not put the battery in the phone until you are away from your normal residence. After getting the page respond using the phone, and get confirmation. Take out the battery and then throw away the phone.

It will cost you the cost of cheap cell phone but they won't be able to track you or link you to a specific residence.

Yes, the bad guys can track you and listen to your conversations even with the phone turned off, as long as the battery is in.

Yeah he did "read some more" mate. The fact is he wanted an account to start off with, but becuase he has a brain he won't sign up and send them his mobile number or government doccument. Zuckerberg is a c*nt, he became a billionaire and then started introducing ridiculous rules. He knows full well had he been using this mentality back in early 2005 no one would have signed up to his stupid site and he'd still be a peasant!
