DigameXtra on Facebook On Hold: Due to again being locked out of my FB accounts  for the umpteenth time I cannot continue to post daily DigameXtra issues on FB. I am working on it but FB support is almost useless, their identity confirmation won’t send my mobile the reset code, I don’t know anyone they show me photos of, I can’t send them a scan of my utility bill as it’s included in my rent, and evidently I don’t know my own birthday! To be honest I am ready to quit FB all together. I will update in a few days. -Ed.
