  1. Hey Mohit

    Thanks for the detailed article. But can you confirm that it still works? I changed the proxy many times. Even shows me that I have an Indonesian IP. But facebook still doesn't allow me a single name.

    It gives the error: "Anda harus memberikan nama belakang" which means last name is required.

    Do you have any idea? Thanks!

  2. Hello @Mind Hacker
    Yes the trick is working successfully. I just tried it again for my new ID and it worked.
