All these links show how Facebook just deleted hundreds of fake Facebook accounts that Second Life users opened up when they ignored the rules that say

Registration and Account Security

Facebook users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

  1. You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission.
  2. You will not use your personal profile for your own commercial gain (such as selling your status update to an advertiser).
  3. You will not use Facebook if you are under 13.
  4. You will not use Facebook if you are a convicted sex offender.
  5. You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date.
  6. You will not share your password, let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account.
  7. You will not transfer your account to anyone without first getting our written permission.
  8. If you select a username for your account we reserve the right to remove or reclaim it if we believe appropriate (such as when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user’s actual name).

This whole process wasn’t the work of only one person. There are many who helped to report many many fake Facebook profiles because Facebook needed more than just one or two people to report to take the profiles down. A official letter sent to the Facebook owners in the mail two weeks ago we hoped helped to.

So please continue to report these fake profiles to Facebook. But to the Secondlife users who think they got their fake Facebook profiles deleted withou warning I say that you did have your warning right here on this blog. Any Secondlife users that still have fake accounts on Facebook you should read the Facebook TOS and delete your account yourself because when we find it, it’s getting reported until it gets nuked!
