Users on both Facebook and Instagram are being told they need to provide government-issued identification in order to access their accounts, which have been otherwise locked down. This is reportedly an official effort by the social media pair — Facebook is Instagram’s parent company — against accounts they suspect of terms of service violations. Further, some users who went to this quite suspicious trouble (in the age of identity theft and information trading, being told to send a photo of your ID for a Facebook account doesn’t immediately ring true) didn’t even have their type of ID accepted. Rather, they were instructed to provide further documentation — anything from a copy of a work or school ID, to a copy of a birth certificate. (Photo from Talking Points Memo) source
