Here’s a little comic relief on a Friday! 

This is one of the main reasons that I randomly activate & deactivate my Facebook page. I find it be extremely intrusive & monitored & the fact that they want all your personal info (& your first born) is a little weird for a social media account. I mean one day they will want your social security number. But I digress.

I remember once trying to add ‘Coke’ to my screen name and immediately my “request was “denied”. I remember thinking there must be some nerdy geek Facebook guy trolling screen names?!  Clearly there might be!

Via Fox5NY — A Facebook post by a man named Phuc Dat Bich (pronounced “Phoo Da Bic”) has gone viral. The Australian of Vietnamese descent says his account has been shutdown several times by the social media site. The issue appears to be centered on his name.

According to Bich, 23, Facebook accuses him of having a “false and misleading” name.

Bich even posted a photo of his passport that showed his full name.  

Earlier this year, Bich wrote:

“I find it highly irritating the fact that nobody seems to believe me when I say that my full legal name is how you see it.”

The post went viral Friday after a newspaper in Australia got wind of the issue.

Bich appeared to be back on Facebook after he re-posted a link to the article.
