Can you please make it a condition of Facebook membership that existing members and future applicants for Facebook membership give meaningful profiles of themselves other than just their name and gender by giving mandatory information such as dates of birth; names of places they've lived; names of employers; occupations; and in the case of married women...their maiden names? At present, if a person's name is entered, Facebook throws up potentially hundreds of names from around the World which makes contacting friends nigh impossible!
Presumably when people join social media sites such as Facebook, it is done with the intention of contacting lost friends and old work colleagues so they should have no qualms about providing as much information as possible to enable this to be achieved. Anyone dissenting from providing this information is not really entering into the spirit of social media and should have their name removed from Facebook.
