Followup on Facebook ID protection: You can use advertisers to prove who you are
Just to add to the post of Sept 14.
It appears that Facebook requires that individuals who want to “boost” issue-oriented posts on their pages in advertorials (posts that don’t actually sell anything or ask for donations for a non-profit) have to have proven their US “identities” by having purchased at least one ad in the past for a product they were selling in a conventional manner. Adsense, Amazon Associates, and ads bought for them by POS publishers for books don’t count.
Also, Facebook has terminated accounts of police departments (like in Memphis) who use fake accounts to entrap some activists or to spy on groups like Black Lives Matter.
