Facebook: “Your Name is Fake”

Facebook: "Your Name is Fake"Blendover Episode 156:

You know how Facebook supposedly has systems in place to ensure you’re not using a fake name? It turns out that the systems are backfiring – several Native Americans, some with traditional names, are being told by Facebook that their names are fake! We look into this farce and find out what’s going on. Our Craniumelody artist this week is 4minute.

BlendoveR is a fun, hard-hitting pod-cast where rules are regularly thrown out the window in favor of honest, open commentating with frank, and brutal, opinions.  Presented by Greg Davies (cGt2099 from The-TrukstoP.com), and Terr Ciavarra (Media Nox from medianox.bandcamp.com), we try to make the focus of the show touch on world news, music, social events, movies, politics, books, and technology innovations, but, more often than not, we stray on to any topic that presents itself or wanders off onto its own tangent.
