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.
