** The "Other" mailbox. It works like the junk mail folder on your email and most messages there are typical spam messages, but every-so-often will serious messages from people you're not friends with (usually from your job or school) asking questions you could answer to be placed there as well. How many check their "Other" mailboxes on a regular basis? Some people doesn't even know they have that mailbox.

** If your name is not "the name you use in everyday life" (in Facebook's wording, but in practice it's really "legal name", read further), and Facebook's staff finds out, they will threaten to disable your account unless you change your Facebook name to your legal name. Even if it ''is'' your legal name, you may get flagged for using a fake name anyway, and will have to provide government-issued proof (such as a driver's license, birth certificate, or passport) that it ''is'' your real name. This is a problem when one considers the {{Double Standard}}s for what constitutes a legal-looking name (names of European origin are seen as more "real"-looking and thus acceptable than names coming from other cultures), people who use pseudonyms for safety or privacy reasons (such as to get away from stalkers and abusive family members), and people whose legal names are [[https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/deadname deadnames]] (e.g. due to being transgender).

Further excaberating all of this is that "false names" can be reported by ''users'', meaning that all it takes is one or two people who have a grudge against you to jeopardize your account.

* DoubleStandard: Facebook's [[http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/05/29/campaigners_get_facebook_response/ announcement]] of a new policy has stuck some users as this. The new rules would ban anything that "promotes violence" against women. While this sounds like a good idea many have criticized the rather vague and loose wording as well as the fact that is does not offer the same protections for men. The fact that it bases its judgments and training solely on feminist claims and ([[UsefulNotes/{{Feminism}} misunderstood]]) beliefs has also drawn [[http://www.avoiceformen.com/feminism/feminist-lies-feminism/facebook-hates-women/ some attention.]]

** The Treding section of the site used to provide news in succinct, accurate summaries. Now their summaries are vague clickbait that barely tells you anything about what's trending, or bring in very biased views about politics or social issues. For example, one trend talked about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis's new son and his strange name, but don't actually mention the name.
