We have an unusual surname. Facebook didn't like it. The only way my eldest son could sign up was to split his surname in half! Last week he took a lorry for an MoT He is an engineer for the council so is always taking lorries to the test centre, most examiners know him. However a new tester thought his surname was a joke. No.1 had to explain it WAS his real name, it was on his licence!!

If you can use this forum, you can use Facebook. My son with learning difficulties has a Facebook account. He can't read, write, or do any maths but we can send him pictures, messages he can hopefully ask his staff to read to him etc. I keep in touch with friends who I meet in Crete, scattered around the world, etc, etc. I never say when I am going away on the main site. I can send photos to friends. Wonderful to be able to keep in touch during lockdown.
I've done research in using an alias name as don't want to use my actual name, doesn't seem possible.
I know loads of people on FB who don’t use their full name. Most use their first name and middle name with no surname.

I know I've mentioned being wary of going on Facebook. I have signed up to Twitter hoping it would be simpler, but no. Non of the responses I've received have been any supportive.
