Suddenly and without warning, cosplayer facebook pages are disappearing! It seems as though anyone with the word ‘cosplay’ in their Facebook username has had their accounts deleted without explanation. Some theories hitting the news feed now are that facebook wants to concentrate cosplayer activities to fan pages only, but only time will tell. As of this moment we have not heard of any fan pages being effected. If you or a loved-one use the word cosplay in a personal username, it may already be too late.
We will keep you updated as we learn more.
(Editor’s Update: Nerd Caliber has e-mailed Facebook’s corporate headquarters and has yet to receive a response from them concerning their actions.)
(Second Update – 10:25PM EST – Facebook has neither answered my e-mail or returned my phone call. However The Daily Dot did receive a response from their media agency.)
