Nightclub/bar bouncers using Facebook to verify ID




Allowing underage individuals into a bar or club can have a devastating effect on that business, with fines, license suspensions, and even criminal charges hitting the owner hard. Itís not always easy to verify identification, so some enterprising bouncers in the U.K. have started matching up Facebook accounts to IDs.

Some bouncers have demanded that patrons log in to Facebook using their smartphone to make sure they are not using a fake ID.

On a few occasions, bouncers have asked to see Charlotte Nealís phone to make sure her Facebook account matched her driverís licence.
