Hi Chris. Why has Facebook.com said I'm ineligable to sign up with them? I have not found a way to call or email them to find out why.

Online Discrimination

Hi Sterling,

There could any number of reasons why you can not sign up for facebook. You may have been banned for some type of violation of the End User agreement, and your IP address or e-mail address has been blacklisted. You may be violating one of the following areas. Or you do not meet the criteria for membership. Here are some of the rules for facebook:

Registration and Account Security Facebook users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:

You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission. You will not use Facebook if you are under 13. You will not use Facebook if you are located in a country embargoed by the U.S., or are on the U.S. Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals. You will not use Facebook if you are a convicted sex offender. You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date. You will not share your password, let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account. You will not transfer your account to anyone without first getting our written permission. Protecting Other People's Rights We respect other people's rights, and expect you to do the same.

You will not post content or take any action on Facebook that infringes someone else's rights or otherwise violates the law. We can remove any content you post on Facebook if we believe that it violates this Statement. We will provide you with tools to help you protect your intellectual property rights. To learn more, visit our How to Report Claims of Intellectual Property Infringement page. If we removed your content for infringing someone else's copyright, and you believe we removed it by mistake, we will provide you with an opportunity to appeal. If you repeatedly infringe other people's intellectual property rights, we will disable your account when appropriate. You will not use our copyrights or trademarks(including Facebook, the Facebook and F Logos, FB, Face, Poke, Wall and 32665) without our written permission. If you collect information from users, you will: obtain their consent, make it clear you(and not Facebook) are the one collecting their information, and post a privacy policy explaining what information you collect and how you will use it. You will not post anyone's identification documents or sensitive financial information on Facebook. They also have a help center. You may look at it. Here is some of what it says:

I'm trying to sign up for a new account to use as a personal profile: While signing up for a personal profile, please ensure that your full name does not contain any invalid punctuation and that it contains a full last name. If you're still having problems signing up for a personal profile, please submit a report. Also: What do I need to do to sign up for this site?

From our Sign Up page, just provide us with your full name, email address, desired password, gender, and date of birth. If you are a current high school student, you will have the option to join one of our supported high school networks. If you are no longer in high school, you can join one of our college or workplace networks. After you complete the sign up form, we will send an email to the address you provided. Clicking on the confirmation link will complete the sign up process.

I hope these explain a little. Its not discrimination, its policy for privacy reasons.

Be well and if you get on, look me up, I would be happy to show you around facebook. :)
