** If your name is not your real name, and Facebook's staff finds out, they will threaten to disable your account unless you change to your real name. Even if it ''is'' your real name, you may get flagged for using a fake name anyway, and will have to provide government-issued evidence that it ''is'' your real name. As for why this is seen as a Scrappy Mechanic, let's just say {{Double Standard}}s for what constitutes a real-looking name, people who use pseudonyms for safety reasons, and people whose legal names are [[https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/deadname deadnames]] are involved [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement and leave it at that]].

** If people can count as memes, there are several recognisable examples. Tracy Barbie/Armah/Bratty/etc. was a one-shot on MTV's Catfished. When her fame died out, she decided to make a new following on Facebook (and its sister Instagram) by using her pre-recognized personality and began garnering attention by posting incredibly offensive content that we don't need examples of here. Once again, she went viral, though that status died qickly again.
*** Erika Camacho, another celebrity catfish, and Asad Ali, a young Middle-Eastern man famous for "dating" his thousands of female followers, are two other examples. The former was famous for faking relationships with other popular kids while the latter was famous for his womanizing (and actually referred to as a meme). Funnily enough, the two got into a turf war and ended in VolleyingInsults. Again, other than their devoted fanbase, nobody really remembers them.

** YOU GOT THE ZUCC/HE GOT THE ZUCC.[[labelnote:Explanation]]A relatively new meme, this meme is play on the "Got the succ" meme wherein Facebook user accounts or their pages are removed for arbitrary rule violations, or no reason given, passing the blame from average site admins to the founder Mark Zuckerberg. Other victims will often teasingly respond to blocked users as "He got the Zucc".[[/labelnote]]

** By September 1st, thousands of profile clones named Hugh Mungus (plural Hugh Mungi) began flooding the website user base. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The joke, mainly perpetrated by individuals under 16, began as a reaction to a viral video of a Black Lives Matter protest at a high-cost police station wherein a white male citizen was interviewed, but not any of the protesters. One woman (accused of being a radical feminist) took offensive and demanded to interrogate the man. She asked him his name to which he flatly replied, "Hugh. (Hugh what?) Hugh Mungus. She then accused him of sexual harassment, inevitably hijacking the protest. The meme has also been covered on Buzzfeed and Gawker.[[/labelnote]]

** While hate groups against the usual targets (Jews, African Americans, LGBT people, etc.) are not tolerated, hate groups against [[AcceptableEthnicTargets smaller, lesser known minorities]] (lesser known in the US at least) are often left alone no matter how many times they get reported for being racist.
