Authors Beware: Facebook Doesn’t Allow Pen Names – From The Story Empire Blog


Hello SErs! Harmony here. Happy Monday! Today, I am posting about a serious issue that I have experienced recently. Some of you might have noticed that I no longer have any presence on Facebook. That little corner of social media that I spent 4 to 5 years building up. At the last count, I had over 800 followers. That took some doing. And, now … nothing.

Why is that?

Let me explain. I got hacked. So, the first thing I did was to change my password and set up two-factor authentication. All well and good. Then problems hit. Facebook’s two factor broke. It just wouldn’t send me the access codes to my mobile via text SMS. So, in the end, I had to use one of their hundreds of contact forms to ask for help. It took from early Sunday morning to late Monday night to finally get a response and access to my account. And to do that, I had to upload a copy of my passport photo.

All good again? Not quite.
