    I signed up for a facebook fanpage for an authority site I'm building.

    It seems you need to now give them a mobile phone # and confirm to get a page url, which is a real pain in the ass.

    But on top of that, as I was uploading a display picture for the page, facebook decides to just automatically log me out. Upon re-logging it claims "someone may have logged into your account". Which is complete bullshit, then it requests governmental ID via an image upload just to get into your account again.

    The fuck is this? Clearly they're out to collect ID's for some data collection operation but how do I avoid this? I'm not giving them my ID but cant get into the account until I do.

    Simple way - Stop using facebook.

    They always want mobile number to send you messages all the time.

    Did you make several accounts from the same ip/ same browser, if so maybe that's why they're asking for all the extra security.

    dude just don't say "fb is a joke" there are millions user using it ! May be there is something you are not doing it right. After all fb is all based on programming logic. Live with it ! if you need to create that fb page .... do it ... just think around the box ! i do not mean to blame you ... just think fresh ! there is always a solution for that

    My guess, you either made more accounts or used a public proxy. Either way, it's a mistake.

    not really true, of course you can...there might be a few things that you can't do with a non-pva account, but you can make them and use them quite well.

    Obviously proxy or the ip you used is the issue here.
    If you are using private proxies, it is highly possible that these proxies are already spammed by other users. Always ask for virgin proxies.

    Sense of this post; very little

    I had 1 made 1 fanpage prior 3 months ago via an entirely different account.

    I was using my local IP and everything was going smoothly until facebook randomly booted me.

    Thinking about photoshopping a fake passport and sending it to FB to see what happens. Either way this is fucking stupid. Phone number is a pain in the ass but reasonable; requesting an upload of your ID or birth certificate for a fanpage, simply because you already made one a few months ago is ridiculous.

    It happens and it's indeed out there to avoid spam and also collect more user information, as they always want. I also had problems registering a new Google account without a phone number.

    It really bothers me, to the point of not creating any of both, even when I really needed them. Personally I can't believe they're going so far on the register process :/

    The proxy determines if they are going to send you an SMS confirmation request or ID request.

    People need to understand that these services are not 'free'. You're exchanging your privacy for these kind of accounts in social networks or services such as Gmail etc.

    What was the niche of the page? And did your last account got suspended or is it still active? The answers to these questions might help in identifying the reason why it actually happened.
