Facebook Profile

Well, I’ve managed to set up a Facebook group for Ice Cubes, but not without some issues. My first step was to create a new account. I wanted to create a unique identity for Ice Cubes, so that it had a life of it’s own and wasn’t just an off-shoot of one person’s account (even though there would be at least three admin in the end).

So, the account is called Ice Cubes. Except it isn’t, because I struggled to create an account that was simply called that. I had to do it as ice-cubes Cemap, or a variation of those words that moved away from being straightforward and simple. In the world of Facebook developers, you aren’t allowed to be called Ice. I’m still exploring why you wouldn’t be allowed to have this name, in a world of Britney’s and Email’s, and any variation and mis-spelling of many names, it seems an odd decision to deny the unique moniker that identifies you from a) your family b) at least a percentage of those people in your social/work group.

Update: Interestingly, there’s this excerpt from the T&C’s within the user Conduct section:

In addition, you agree not to use the Service or the Site to:

register for more than one User account, register for a User account on behalf of an individual other than yourself, or register for a User account on behalf of any group or entity

Which, I guess means you have to create groups as yourself.
