Facebook’s Case Of Mistaken Identity
So you go to log onto your Facebook account, only to find out that you can’t. That’s exactly what happened to an Indianapolis bankruptcy attorney, whose name is Mark S. Zuckerberg, not Mark E. Zuckerberg the Facebook founder.
In a story from AP, Attorney Zuckerberg said that his profile on the Facebook website was suddenly shut down for a while, because his name is very similar to that of Facebook founder Mark E. Zuckerberg.
There was a report that Facebook sent him some error messages stating that he has a fraudulent identity. His account was finally restored with a message from Facebook apologizing for the inconvenience.
He had to supply copies of his birth certificate, his driver’s license and his Indianapolis Bar Association license when he set up his account back in 2009. I think we’ve all had technical problems with our Facebook accounts, but nothing like this. This got me to think about the movie “The Social Network.” Do you think Hollywood could make a movie out of this?
