FAIRBANKS, Alaska – Santa Claus’ Facebook account has been restored after the social media company suspended his access and the requested proof of identity on christmas day.
Claus, a north pole city councilman, said he never got a reason his page was blocked. He said that he thought that Facebook does not believe, his name was Santa Claus or that he lived in the North Pole.
A Facebook spokeswoman apologized in an e-mail Tuesday for the hanging of Claus’ account and said that it was done by a mistake.
“The account was removed in the bug fix and as soon as we were able to investigate,” the company said in a statement. “Our team processes millions of reports per week, and we sometimes get things wrong.”
To have his account restored, Claus said that he sent several documents that prove his or her identity, including copies of Alaska his driver’s license and the letter of appointment to the north pole city council. Claud said: he is the only Santa Claus on Facebook who lives in the city and legally goes by the name.
