Facebook now removing SL FB Accounts

SL News Alert

I have been hearing lately that Facebook have been removing SL accounts by deactivating them one by one. Be prepared, this is very bad news for the SL community I think that use FB on a regular basis. This is one of the messages Facebook are sending out at the moment (this was sent to Arjuna Nirvana). It will be interesting to see if Linden Lab responds to this soon, if any at all.

Facebook accounts are meant for personal, authentic usage only and should reflect mainly your “real-world contacts.” As such, fake accounts are a violation of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. This includes accounts that exist solely for the usage of third-party gaming applications, as well as users that maintain multiple accounts to gain an unfair advantage in these applications.

While we realize that certain third-party applications might encourage users to create multiple accounts, send out form messages, or make posts on other users’ Walls, we cannot make exceptions to the policies we have in place.

Please be aware that we take the appropriate action on any violations we encounter. If there are any accounts like this on the site currently, it is only because they have not yet been removed.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to reactivate this account for any reason. This decision is final.

Thanks for your understanding,

  • I really don’t see any problem Second Life residents having SL accounts if they use them well.
  • Over to you, what do you think of this? Whats the latest?
