Help our facebook friends

Postby billyswong » Sat Jun 27, 2015 2:46 am UTC

Many knows facebook has a stupid "real name policy", and many fall victim to it. One crazy example is not believing one's name is real. http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/feb/16/facebook-real-name-policy-suspends-native-americans

Recently, many politically active facebook friends in Hong Kong got affected too, many got asked to show identity proof documents. Hong Kong is so far still an authoritarian non-democratic place, and giving up privacy is very bad for their personal safety.
