Not the Mark Zuckerberg, just a Mark Zuckerberg

Oh the pain: a consumer bankruptcy and home foreclosure attorney in Indianapolis is adjusting to life without Facebook, after an identity clash led to his account being disabled.

Mark S Zuckerberg, whose problems with the social networking site began, predictably, when he first tried to join. At that point, he told a local TV station, he had to jump through hoops to get an account, providing everything from birth certificate to his Bar Association license to prove his ID.

After a couple of years as another happy user of the modern world’s opiate of the masses, Zuckerberg suddenly found his account disabled. He told the TV program that he’s found himself having to explain to friends that he hasn’t de-friended them, he’s been cut off.

It would appear to El Reg that a keen admin somewhere didn’t twig to the idea that a Mark Zuckerberg with only 350 Facebook friends might not be the millionaire boss of the outfit.

As he observed talking to WishTV in Marion County, it’s nearly impossible to speak with humans at Facebook. However, the site promises to reverse the administrative cock-up, he said.
