Some social media platforms contract you to change your name as frequently as you want. Not so much with Facebook: they only agree to one name change in a 60-day period. And if you change your name too often, that can spread to 120 days.
Also contrasting other platforms Facebook wants you to use your real name. They agree on common copied names, like Bob for Robert, Liz for Elizabeth, and Larry for Lawrence. If you use a fake name, you hazard being expelled from Facebook. The company’s own detailed policy on the material reads, in part.
