Facebook’s controversial policy requiring users to use their real names just got an update

The policy itself isn’t changing, according to a statement from Facebook on Tuesday, but the social network will now allow users to explain a special circumstance when verifying their name. That will flag the profile for Facebook’s review teams so they can provide “personalized support.”

Also, when users report a Facebook profile with a “fake” name, they’ll have to provide additional information; previously they could submit a report without explanation.
