I'm so bummed. I have never been a social media person. I created a facebook account just for Township. It allowed me to play on two devices but the unknown benefit was I added a bunch of new friends from the Township group. Then I pretty much never logged in again because the Facebook group was... well... we all know! A mess! I've had over 300 friends to help and to help me back, always exciting and always something to do in "TS Retirement." It made the Professors Experiment particularly fun with all the helicopter help flying around!! 

But I guess my gaming profile didn't follow Facebook's rules and my account was deactivated. My fault for giving facebook a false name... HOWEVER Township is constantly sending reminders in the chat box about how we should never share personal information. Yet, in order to have more than 50 friends (which is also encouraged) we have to have a real facebook account with our real identity?? This makes no sense. Now that my account is no longer connected I lost all my super active friends. No more helicopter help Sad And I cannot play on two devices! I'm scared to even open my iPad for fear I'll lose my town.

I hate it that players are punished for not sharing personal information when that is exactly what Playrix tells us we shouldn't do. Sigh.

I’m really sorry to hear that this happened to you. I see a lot of TS only FB accounts, although some have been removed. 
FB seem to be doing a bit of housekeeping, unfortunately clearing out profiles for more sinister reason, it has also hit the TS community.

To be fair... my last name on Facebook was "Township" hahaha. So I guess I have to laugh about being caught? I just wasn't trying to hide it, I figured lots of folks did that. Oh well. I just have to decide now if I am actually willing to have some sort of real account so I can have friends again and multiple devices :/

My whole game changed once I added all those active friends. Now all helps have dried up and I also have very few I am able to help. That's what I am most sad about. It really pumped life into the game for me.

If both your devices are IOS (iPhone, iPad) then you don’t need Facebook to play on multiple devices.  Your game progress is saved to Apple GameCenter using your AppleID.

It is really too dumb that Facebook only allows one account per person.  I would think most people would like to keep family, work, and gaming contacts separate.  

I did finally connect a couple games to my FB account.  We need to use the FB privacy settings to restrict what people can see or do there.

I agree that a personal, gaming and work profile would be very advantageous. 
With more and more prospective employers searching social media & the recent spate of FB hacking that’s been going on, I stopped posting anything personal, which is a shame, but necessary for me. 
On the upside, my friends & family don’t have to put up with the funny memes I used to post anymore, always a silver lining. 🤣🤣

When I joined the Township Facebook group with the fake account (which had no identifying info or photos) I accepted all friend requests because I was only in that one group and that is the only place I posted asking for Township friends. I started receiving very disturbing messages, nasty photos and messages, and video calls! I deleted and blocked them, but that was another reason I logged out and stayed away once I had accumulated some in-game friends. I would have been very concerned if I had that experience with a real account. It's so unfortunate Playrix demands we link to facebook in order to increase our in-game friends. It's really unsafe and against everything they tell you not to do in the actual game.

That's why I refuse to link my game to FB at all.  I had a very bad experience 10 years ago with FB friends for another game.  That is also the reason I have hesitated to open the co-op. Heck it took me awhile to even add friends from the suggested friends tab in the game.

I'm just super cautious about these things these days.  So if a game forces me to not be cautious then I won't be playing the game.

Same here. I am cautious about using Facebook to play games and add games friends now. I didn't get burn 10 years ago but I feel the people on FB have changed. Yet I still feel penalised because I can't join all the Co op that required one to have FB messenger.

So for what it's worth, in the last update all of my Facebook friends I had magically came back to me. I still can't log into my Facebook account, but at least I am still connected to all the friends I had acquired. I'm so happy, because having a lot of friends to help and have help from has made the game far more enjoyable for me than being limited to only the in game friends who aren't as active.

You can have 1 Facebook and also keep everything separate.  Whenever you go in to edit something, do you notice how it asks if you want it open to everyone and then gives you a host of other options?  You can set what info, posts, pictures, etc.  The automatic lists are "public, friends, and just you" but you can make lists of let's say, Townshippers to only see or not see something you are posting or that is on your profile.
