Question about Facebook Websites

3 Answers

I have a one-word name. LAST NAME ONLY. No first name. My one-word last name is EsDavid. And because Facebook uses the first name field so often, I think it prudent to be EsDavid EsDavid. Presently Facebook has given me "nofirstname" as a first name. So I am "nofirstname EsDavid". That is NOT working for me at all. How can I contact Facebook tech support to remedy this problem?

    EsDavid here. Furthermore, I have not found a way to successfully contact Facebook support. When I attempted to contact them via their FAQs, my only option was to say "Login" issue, and hope they would read the comment section. Not so much. I received a standard answer saying, "It looks like you were able to login successfully." I've responded with a "reply" 3 times since, but no response. Evidently simply "replying" just goes into ethernet abyss. Thanks for your help.

    Unfortunately Facebook will not let me enter EsDavid in the first name field. I get a message that I must enter a valid first name. That's why I need to contact Facebook tech support to have someone there do it from the programming side. Is there anyway to contact Facebook tech support?

    Do you really mean I can delete this account without losing all of the friends and preference settings?

Hi!

You can delete the account and add your last name as your first name over there and then can proceed with the account as usual.

    Save your name as Es and david as last name and save it, after its being saved logout, login and then change the name to Esdavid as first name, don't add last name field.

Is there a way to look up an episode of judge just by using the last name of a person that was on the show?


Go to IMDB.com. Type the actor's last name in the search field and search. Scroll down and look for the name of the show you want. You can also use CTRL+F and let your internet browser find it on the page for you.

WHY OH WHY can I NOT gET access yet again to my fb acct.!!..first no acct then cannot find password..the current answer takes too much effort..Cant it be si8mpler??? Its been nearly 3 months now. Im d


Point your web browser at http://www.facebook.com

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the little down arrow in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

If you're getting an error message, exactly what does it say?

Change my last name on facebookchange my last name


In facebook, top right you'll see a little icon dropdown arrow, click that and then click "Settings". from there select in the window that comes up "Name" either by clicking name or the edit button. There you will see where you can back out current name and add your new name. remember to click Save changes - sometimes it takes a few minutes for the change to take place on facebook's side.

My ipad4 has my old last name as Facebook login so my password no longer works only on my iPad


Password you should be able to change thru forgotten pwd. You can then reset a new one. But user id is a problem sometime if it is other than email address.

My name change request continues to be rejected


You can submit a name change request through the "Name" section of your Account Settings page. Please note that Facebook reviews each name change request that is submitted. Due to the volume of requests they receive, your request may not be processed immediately.

Please note that Facebook account names must adhere to the following authenticity standards:

  • Your full first and last name must be listed. Initials cannot stand in place of your full name. Nicknames can be listed if they are a variation of your first or last name, but only in the format "First Name 'Nickname' Lastname."
  • Your name must be listed using characters from one language only.
  • Your name cannot consist of any titles, symbols, numbers, unusual capitalization, or punctuation.

Impersonating anyone or anything is not permitted. To encourage people to use their real names on Facebook, they limit the number of times names can be changed. Also, if a Facebook representative changes your name for you, this change is considered final and you can't manually change your name afterwards. To list another name you go by, such as a maiden name, please go to the Account Settings page.

FACEBOOK WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO USE MY REAL NAME. WHEN I TRY TO CHANGE MY NAME IN THE 'ACCOUNT SETTINGS' THE SYSTEM REJECTS THE NAME


Please note that Facebook account names must adhere to the following authenticity standards:
  • Your full first and last name must be listed. Nicknames can be listed if they are a variation of your first or last name, but only in the format "First Name ‘Nickname’ Lastname."
  • Accounts are for personal use only. To represent a celebrity, business or brand, please create a Facebook Page. Pages are for representing a real public figure, artist, brand or organization and may only be created by an official representative of that entity. For more information about Facebook Pages, please click here.
  • Professional and religious titles are not allowed in account names.
  • You can list your maiden name as your alternate name on the Account Settings page. Please note that account names that include "was", "nee", and "formerly" are not allowed.
  • Accounts can represent one person only. Accounts representing groups, families, or couples are not allowed.
Facebook reviews every name change request before it is approved. If your real, full first and last name has been rejected, you can submit your request for further review. Please select the option that best describes your issue:
  • I'm already registered, but I need to change my name: Please submit your name change request and allow 24 hours for the submission to be approved. Facebook reviews each name change request that is submitted. Due to the volume of requests we receive, your request may not be processed immediately. If you have already submitted the request and the 24 hours have expired, please submit your report to Facebook.
  • I'm trying to sign up for a new account to use as a personal profile: While signing up for a personal profile, please ensure that your full name does not contain any invalid punctuation and that it contains a full last name. If you're still having problems signing up for a personal profile, please submit a report.
