Four days ago, Facebook suspended my account because my name was in violation of their community standards. However, oddly enough, my name wasn't against their standards.
"It looks like the name on your Facebook account may not be your authentic name. We ask everyone to use the name they go by in real life so friends know who they're connecting with. If this is the name you use in your everyday life, we would like to work with you to verify the name that best represents your identity. We accept a number of documents to allow you to verify your everyday name."
In their description there is not one mention of a using a legal name. My name was listed as "Joshua D. Pathfinder" which is the name I use in my day to day life, across social media, in cosplay communities, BJD communities, with friends, and even with family. This is the name that best represents my identity.
Furthermore, I have good reasons to not use my real last name publicly. Those reasons come in the form of stalkers who would harm me if they were able to look me up by my legal last name.
Facebook won't listen to me. But they can't ignore a large group of people. Please consider signing my petition and sharing it on all your social media sites. Make as many people see this as possible; Facebook is making villains out of victims.
Thank you for your support!
