Facebook is a social network website where people can interact with their friends online. Users can share what they're doing or thinking, and they can share links and videos and comment on things their friends share.

But the rule is that you have to be yourselfand use your own name.

In trying to verify such things, the computer verification system inevitably makes mistakes, so it might have made a mistake if it rejected the name you tried to use.
Facebook Name Standards

Facebook wants people to be themselves and not pretend to be someone else, so it requires users to use their real first and last names when they sign up for a Facebook personal profile.

This means that you can't pretend to be your friend Joe, you can't sign up for a Facebook account under your pet's name, you can't use a name you use in a video game or the name of a movie character.

Also, couples are not supposed to sign up for a single account using both their names. Names can be rejected if they contain symbols, numerals or punctuation, or are capitalized in an unusual way.

You also shouldn't include a title such as Mr. or Dr.
You can add a nickname or maiden name in place of a middle name because Facebook realizes people are sometimes known under different names for legitimate reasons.

Email Address Problems

To keep people from signing up for more than one personal profile, Facebook won't let you sign up for two Facebook accounts using the same email address.

If you find there is already a Facebook account associated with your email address, ask to have the password sent to you and verify whether it's your account and you just forgot you set it up.

Also, make sure you type the address in the correct format.
It needs to have an @ sign and a complete domain name; "@gmail" is not correct, but instead should be "@gmail.com" for example.

If your email address begins with "info" or "webmaster" Facebook may assume this is a generic address for an organization and not an individual.
How to Protest

If you are convinced you are trying to use a name that is allowed and still getting rejected, you can fill out the Facebook "Name Rejected" form (facebook.com/help/reg.php?show form=name rejected).

Remember also that you have to be 13 years of age or older to be a Facebook member.
The form asks for your date of birth, so that could trigger a rejection also if you are too young.
Other Options

If you are associated with a business, a brand or an event, you can create a Facebook Page (also sometimes called a Fan Page or a Business Page).

You can do this at Facebook's Create a Page section (facebook.com/pages/create.php) to represent a business, place, company, organization, brand or product, artist, band, public figure, some form of entertainment, cause or community.

You can also create a group at the Groups page (facebook.com/groups).

These are options to let you interact on Facebook if you represent something that is not an individual person.
If your Facebook profile is still unavailable after many days, then send an email to
info@facebook.com,
appeals@facebook.com or
disabled@facebook.com and explain them the issue.

Once you send them an email, your account will be available again soon.

I'm having trouble logging into my facebook it wont accept my password I put my email address on my face shows up or put my phone number and it shows that it will not accept my password


Hi
You could try this. If you go to facebook.com login page, just under where you input your password you can click on "forgotten password". This takes you to a page where it says "find my account" where you can enter "Email, Phone, Username or Full Name". Try entering one of these (My email gave the best result for me) and follow through the instructions to reset your password so that you can access your account.

Good Luck

How do I find my email address on my Facebook so I can log in and reset my password


Facebook accepts full name, email, username or phone number to reset your password.

Username can be seen on your profile page url facebook.com/(username)

If you don't know any of these details, then you can't reset your password... but I doubt you forgot your real name!

For some reason Facebook won't accept my email address. Why????


have you tried putting you email address and making sure that capslock is turned off, if so and it still wont accept your email as you say try retrieving your password put your email click forgot password it will prompt you to input your personal for password rest and retrieval, this happened to me as well but I found out I was hacked, because when I got to change my password and enter my facebook all my personal pictures were deleted and messages were sent to my friends saying I was hacked with a smiling face on the message .

First things first you should change your password immediately, second, clean your browser once you are done doing FB, third yes, you can scan your computer for virus and spyware, this might be cause by a virus hidden on your system, Lastly, make sure that your secuirty program is always updated.
