Even Atsuko Kudo was deleted! Unbelievable… Facebook admins (or managers?) are idiots…

Thanks to @Overchief

Nevertheless I decided to give Facebook another chance. I registered under a pretty existing name, created a company page, even activated my nick using my cell phone, acquired ~650 friends (almost two times less then earlier). And guess what? Yesterday my account was deleted again.

This time I’m not going to ask for the reason, I do not care. Facebook proved to be absolutely useless. Not many visits, no conversations, no comments. Much-much less than during my first FB period. Users “disappear” faster than “reappear”. Just huge Firefox load.

I think Facebook has passed the peak of popularity. The popularity I can not explain. So far only two social networks continue to “deliver”: professional LinkedIn (mostly used in US and NL) and LiveJournal (in RU). Tumbler is good for finding new photos, Twitter for breaking news and live events.

Facebook will follow Yahoo, MySpace and Hyves. Facebook gets boring. Facebook police (just like Yahoo ~5 years ago) is killing the remaining interest along with spent time, efforts, information, contacts…

Goodbye Facebook. I’m moving further. Anybody got a Google+ invite? 😉

And this is the official reason:

Your account is disabled because we determined that you are not representing yourself authentically on Facebook. According to our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, all accounts must abide by the following policies:

• Accounts must list your real name and date of birth
• Impersonating anyone or anything is prohibited (e.g. profiles created to represent celebrities, pets, ideas, or inanimate objects)

• Profiles created for the purpose of spamming or harassing others are strictly prohibited

Facebook is a community where people connect and share with friends using their real identities. Claiming to be someone else, creating multiple accounts, or falsely representing an organization undermines the trust and safety of the community and violates our terms.

We enforce the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities when we encounter violations on the site or receive reports of violations. If other inauthentic accounts currently exist on the site, it is only because they have not yet been reported and removed.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to reactivate this account or provide further information about your violation or the systems we have in place.

Ridiculous …

And this is how the seemed to be successful story ended. I had 1125 Facebook friends when suddenly without any explanation my account was disabled. I filed a complaint. Let’s see if I get the access back.

  1. yeah. i am thinking of making a twitter though and adding a widget to the sidebar on mine to show my latest “short thoughts” that occur throughout the day. other than that since we all continue to use aliases i am not going to try and social network on facebook either.

  2. I’ve re-registered as Larry Rah this time. No sure how long it will exist.

    About “short thoughts” and Twitter. I still prefer to have everything on-site. Hence I created the “Home alone” forum thread. But I would like to have a more elegant solution. A blog in blog. Probably a “pinned” post with short comments?

    Did you try calling them?

    Calling? You’re joking. They delete thousands accounts every day. Unlike Yahoo (they delete without traces), you can get one of their standard letters (see the post) from Facebook if you complain.

  4. Yeah, I can’t have a Facebook because the runts at work would just love to stalk and harass me on it. So its easier to just not have one.

  5. Zentai Viking Brown is also blocked: /forum/mybb/showthread.php?tid=676 No more perverts allowed? 😀

    Najlon Ator, we are waiting for you 😉
