    hi guys,
    logging in one of my accounts I got the following message, prompting me to pick one of the options:

    What do you do with your profile?
    1. I'm using this profile to represent my authentic self and I'd like to keep using it as a Profile (ex: John Smith).
    2. I'm using this profile to represent something other than myself (i.e. a business, organization or idea).
    3. I'm using this profile to admin an existing Page, Group, Ad Account or other Business presence.

    this is the first time i ever see this. does anyone know what will happen if I sellect option 1? will it lead me to ID verification?
    i want to keep using that account as a profile and don't want to convert it into a page unless it is my only option.

    I recommend using Facebook the date your real name and birth, as it will
    block Facebook loses everything never have to return account

    for those who'll need help with this and are wondering what happens if you state you want to keep using the account as a personal profile here's what happened:

    * i chose option 1 (I'm using this profile to represent my authentic self and I'd like to keep using it as a Profile)
    * they will then ask you to confirm that you indeed want to use it as a personal profile
    * in the next screen you'll need to confirm yet again that you will be using your real name
    * in the next one they'll ask you to chose what name you want (just as when you open an account) - in my case i prefered to chose a different one.
    * then you need to confirm that's the name you want followed by a notice saying they will help you chance the audience of your posts in a later time.

    that's it. no ID verification is required. i assume they knew the name wasn't real as i was never presented with an option to keep the original one. hope this helps someone out :)
