Facebook de-friends the "other" Mark Zuckerberg

If you're the right Mark Zuckerberg you are a lucky man, sitting on the Facebook empire worth billions. If you're Mark Zuckerberg the Indianapolis lawyer, you are not so lucky, at least with Facebook. Bankruptcy attorney Mark S. Zuckerberg has had his Facebook account pulled citing identity fraud, according to The Indianapolis Star.

"I hope it's all just a misunderstanding on their part," Zuckerberg said.

"All my friends are upset with me because they think I de-friended them," Zuckerberg told the Star,  "I've had to do a lot of explaining."

The Star reported that Zuckerberg "receives about 500 Facebook friend requests a day, almost all of them mistaking him for the "other" Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook," and that his law office continually fields calls from people with Facebook complaints.

Zuckerberg had to prove his identity by providing copies of his driver's license, birth certificate, and Indianapolis Bar Association license after Facebook initially denied his attempt to create his account two years ago. I suppose this time they'll require a DNA test.
