No, the point is they do allow multiple accounts with the same name: there are two 'Eddy Vluggen's and countless John Smith's. If they didn't allow that they'd just whack on a unique index. What's not permitted is for one person to have two accounts. In your case I guess they're looking at IP addresses / location / browser agent / cookies, plus the two accounts have the same name, and some (many?) of the same friends. My guess is they want your mobile number to dis-ambiguate the two accounts and confirm that maybe it really is just a co-incidence, rather than either a breach of their rules or out-and-out fraud.

My "local" heritage railway (it's not local to me, and I pass several others to get there!) is a privately-owned railway line, restored to largely as it was in the 1950s/1960s, running a mix of steam and diesel trains. It's a hobby for steam enthusiasts, a living museum, a fun day out, an educational resource, and much more. In April we'll become the first such heritage line to run our trains onto the national network main line (another already runs their trains over a minor branch line; we'll be running onto the electrified, double-track mainline from London to the South West.

If you do get going with FB, explore the groups - you'll be surprised by what niche interests are catered for! Smile | :)
