Default Facebook rant...

It's taken me the better part of a year to actually get hooked on FB. So what happens? Last night when I logged in, I get a promt asking for a phone number to verify that I'm an actual person. Hubby & I hemmed and hawed over that for about an hour, but there was no way to log on without doing it. So, hubby typed in our land line number. Only to get a box that said something to the effect of they're really busy, and it's going to take awhile to get the code to me that I need to log on with. Now, mind you, that was well after 9PM eastern time last night (closer to 10:30). So, what happens this morning? THE SAME DANG THING!! Evidently they really want a cell number, but they ain't getting mine.

You should be able to avoid giving that, I've never given my phone number out!

Definitely sounds like a scam.

Google does the same thing on occasion. There should be somewhere on the page that says skip (it's really tiny). It's not mandatory but can be helpful if someone hacks your account or what have you.

Yea that comes up on Yahoo mail every once in awhile. I just decline to provide it. I've never seen it on FB, though.

facebook asks new users to verify their account with a cell number. It's not a scam..and it's pretty normal.

You don't HAVE to do it. It is necessary so you can use some features (like changing your URL, timeline etc...)

https://www.facebook.com/help/verify

It's so that people stay real and don't start making 2589728957328951 accounts.

I have mine verified.. it's not that big of a deal. You get a text message with a code and fill it in. and they are very specific that the info is never shared, used etc.. and I've never had a problem.
