Aadhaar Card Mandatory For Opening A Facebook Account

aadhaar card need to creating facebook
The government have announced that it will now be mandatory to have an Aadhaar card in order to set up a Facebook account. This will reduce the number of fake accounts that exist on the social media site.

If you already have a Facebook account then you will be required to upload an image of your card to the site in order to prevent your account becoming suspended. This will happen within 15 days so you need to act fast.

The CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed that this is the case and has offered reassurances that all personal information will be kept safe and confidential. He has also reiterated how important it is to use the Aadhaar card to guard against fake accounts.

The government is keen for every citizen to have an Aadhaar card and this was also the policy of the previous government. There are so many things that you can use the card for that it makes sense that as many people have one as possible.

It was interesting to see that when this announcement was made that the number of Indian citizens that applied for an Aadhaar card increased quite rapidly. On the other hand, most Bangladeshi citizens have a card already and so are ready to use it.
