I was selected in the DV-2020 program and now have to complete form DS-260. Currently I'm residing in my home country.
Recently form DS-260 was changed to collect Social Media Identifiers. My Facebook name differs from my real name. Do I have to enter it twice, as Social Media Identifier and under Other Names (Have you ever used other names (i.e., maiden, religious, professional, aliases, etc.)?)?
Social Media Identifier need not be listed as other names used unless used in the real world outside of social media.
