Yea, that is why I am careful what I post over there and use all generic or fake information on my profile.  Google is evil!

It might take some time before this has the desired effect but it's worth doing.

There used to be a setting in the user preferences which would shield your account from the Google spider/bot, but I don't think it is available anymore.

Well your name is all over the internet so until employers, linkedin etc get the memo...
 
And Google doesn't go directly to your FB page, so it's forgotten that already. But it knows your new name is somehow connected to the old name so you can't fool it that easily... you show up in a more general search that pulls up the "people you may know" page etc.

Oh, and your page is still "https://www.facebook.com/heybaba.rebop" so...

I don't think that was their intent at all, but FB users want it to be. Ergo!

 
The fact they stripped the chat function from the main FB mobile app, and made it into its own app tells me they want users to use that Messenger app above all others. I might be reading it wrong, though.

I have never used the chat function, and rarely used the private message function of FB, so I don't have the Messenger app, and never will. Hell, I deactivated my FB account in March, and see no reason to reactivate it.
