I just came across this trick. Apparently, Facebook allows users from Indonesia to remove their middle name and last name/surname. So, we are just going to use an Indonesian proxy to hide our last name/surname.
Go to your internet browser's proxy settings. For example, Firefox users will need to go to Options > Advanced tab > Network tab and then click on Settings.
On the Connection settings, do as shown below (i.e Put a tick mark on Manual proxy configuration and then from the proxy list, put the information under IP address and Port on the correct field of Connection Settings) :
Put a tick mark on Use this proxy server for all protocols and Press on OK.
Now, browse to see if the proxy works or not. Go to IP-Adress.com to check that the proxy is working and that your location is now shown as Indonesia. If the website does not load or if your location is not shown as Indonesia, get a different proxy and repeat the above steps.
If you see Your IP Address Location as Indonesia, log in to Facebook. (If you are using secured Facebook connection, i.e. HTTPS, you'll have to use a proxy that supports HTTPS protocol.)
Look at the bottom of Facebook. You should see your current language there. Click on it.
You will see a list of languages now. Select Bahasa Indonesia.
Now go to Facebook General Settings.
Remove your last name and/or middle name from there, enter your password and then click on Save changes.
Done. From now onward, you will only have your first name on your Facebook profile!
Note : Once you have completed the process, go back to Connection Settings and put a tick mark on No Proxy. Change your Facebook language to your desired one.
Google Chrome and Other Browser Users :
- Go to run and type inetcpl.cpl. Press Enter.
- Go to Connections Tab.
- Click the button that says LAN Settings.
- Put a tick mark on Use a proxy server for your LAN.
- On the Address, put your proxy server address, and on Port put the port number that you received from the proxy sites above.
- Click on Okay.
- Follow the steps above from changing your language to Bahasa Indonesia.
- After you're done, make sure to change your LAN settings to how it was before.
