Quote:Facebook’s ongoing war on pseudonyms is well-documented. The company wants everyone to use their real name on the social network, and ideally this would be their only identity on the Internet. Menlo Park often bans users that use fake names (most are spammers, but many are just using pseudonyms), but it recently went further than that: the company is now asking you to snitch on your friends if they are not using their real name.

As you can see in the screenshot above, courtesy of Twitter user chapeaudefee (via TPM), Facebook recently started prompting friends of users with names they suspect to be fake.

Nice way to rat your "friends" out that just want to remain anonymous. I swear that place gets creepier by the day.

US social media giant Facebook is deleting its facial recognition data it collected from European users and plans to soon terminate the feature there. Meanwhile, the software is gaining traction in the US, attracting apps that now recognize faces in public.

­When users “tag” a friend in a photo uploaded to Facebook, the service stores and remembers facial features that identify that unique individual. Facebook is then able to suggest “tags” on newly uploaded photos to match pictures with names.

If they thought their stock has taken a beating so far wait until they figure out how to get rid of all the people using pseudonyms. They will lose at least 1/3 of their users. It is a fad with teens to use witty pseudonyms. This will be fun to watch. Maybe we should start working on the next big social networking site...

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
