  • Anonymity Online Dangerous? (Video)

    There’s a growing chorus who think that internet users should have to use their real names, as their online footprint. This is controversial because a big part of social media is engaging without becoming intimate.

    There’s a growing chorus of business leaders and consumers, who think that internet users should have to use their real names as their online footprint. I guess this is controversial, because a big part of social media, is engaging without becoming intimate, or at least recognized by choice.

    In the Huffington Post article Facebook’s Randi Zuckerberg: Anonymity Online ‘Has To Go Away, ‘Bianca Bosker profiles Facebook’s Randi Zuckerberg (brother of Mark), who states, “ I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away,” she said during a panel discussion on social media hosted Tuesday evening by Marie Claire magazine. “People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. … I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors.”

    This will be an interesting conversation between privacy and safety, and I would assume first amendment issues will also become entangled. I bet the marketers are pulling for full disclosure, so they can have all those qualified leads: there’s always a business side to these things.

    Good Luck.
