Facebook (generally) uses "real" names rather than nicknames. It'd be a bit of a bummer if you're called John Smith and you couldn't sign up because there was already a John Smith registered. But running two accounts with the same name is a violation of the Ts+Cs I believe.
You're saying if a Mom does not give a fully global unique name, it is in violation? The EULA is almost never enforced. Do they warn Moms in the UK if there's already a child with that name and that such is a FB violation if registered? If the girlfriend comes and asks me how to call the baby, I'd best suggest a (random?) GUID?

I do like the John Smith example, as a common first name is "Jan" and a common last name is "Smeets" in this country, with one of the more familiar folk-singers being "Jantje Smeets".

I imagine FB denying president Bush senior access to his account, because there's already a president Bush registered.

Community events? You join a local group, and post in that group to advertise whatever real-life meeting or event you want to publicise. I tell people about events on my local heritage railway in about a dozen different groups, covering the main town and a couple of smaller villages along the line, plus in county-wide "what's on" groups, as well as railway-based interest groups and so on.
I mistranslated community there; interest groups sounds more logical. "Local heritage railway" was the next, what IS that? So, yeah, we do have one in this city too, we just call them different.

Thanks for the explanation though, it is appreciated Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
