This week Facebook tried out a new tool to help them freeze accounts that look like they’re fake, which is great in theory but evidently didn’t come close to actually working.
A bunch of actual people woke up Wednesday morning with their Facebook accounts mysteriously frozen because the software had flagged them as suspicious.
The weird thing about the account suspensions is that most of the people who have been booted are female, which leads me to suspect that the software suspended them thinking that they were pornbots. Flattering, but, ya know… come on. I’m trying to poke people over here.
Don’t worry, though, ladies. As a blogger and licensed master of sweatpants-chic, I’ve come up with a foolproof guide to make your profile photo less porny and keep your Facebook account up and running!
