Two questions for the Facebook team:
- How can a married woman be found by her old school friends via search? They can’t. Even if you put your maiden name in your profile, it won’t come up in a search.
- How can a woman change her profile to her married name? There is no name change option, and not many users will be keen to create a whole new account under their married name. [Update: Credit to the #mobitopia guys who pointed out I was talking out of my arse. Under Account, you can change your name.]
I would love for Facebook to allow you to enter a maiden name somewhere, enabling users who search for you to see that your name has since changed.
