For those of us who watched Google evolve during the #Nymwars it's both terrifying and validating.
The report is from NNEDV, and those at extreme risk (at least 23 million Facebook users) are victims of domestic violence, victims of sexual assault, women, and LGBTQ people.
The idea that some who have built a significant portion of their incognito private, public, alternative or business identity on fb. are uncomfortable with being forced to use their genuine identity online can't be an argument for 'regulating' fb. The whole idea is ridiculous. Fb is not a public utility and if it were, you still couldn't hide your identity. Most banks (except private ones in tax shelters) require real id. If i were a moralist, i might say 'suits you right, you load of pervs'; but i'm not saying that. What I am saying though, is this: that'll teach you to keep your indiscretions private. If you're doing something censurable and pay with a check or a credit card, you shouldn't be surprised.
