Protecting your Facebook Pages from impostors
In the big scheme of things my Facebook Page, America’s Future Talk Show Host is a small fish compared to other Pages like Coke and Vogue, but recently my Page has been stolen by another Facebook User named Jimmy Boy Moran.
Moran is claiming to be the CEO & Founder of my established brand name.
Now, I know that the title is very uplifting and motivational, but I had it first and I don’t take these things sweetly as other people might want me to. This poser listed the fake information under the “work and education” section of their profile. We have no mutual friends by the way.
What did I do to right the wrong?
I messaged Moran asking him to take down the information, and he has not replied or removed the connection.
Since I heard nothing in response from Moran, I contacted Facebook by reporting the timeline and they sent me this in return:
Note: If you have an issue with something on someone’s timeline or profile, be sure to report the content (ex: a photo), not the entire timeline or profile. That way, your report will be more accurately reviewed.
You cannot report people’s work and education like you can report a photo. I am piss livid. So, there you go I am no where with this and find the entire situation to be dishonest and disgusting.
Facebook needs to implement a solution to people adding fake job and school information on their profiles. It is Facebook, a social network that transformed how we communicate and what we know, I am very certain the leading network can build a more secure way for people to honestly add Pages to their work and education. Solution: Have the Page approve the connection before it appears on the person’s timeline and profile.
So, now I am thinking of getting rid of the Facebook Page altogether. Unless you have something to say about it.
