Wow. Seriously? What the hell does facebook CARE if we are using real names or not? That’s so ridiculous. Nicknames are a thing that happen and…
I know. Facebook is a pile of shit. I should deactivate mine. I type on it a lot, even though I shouldn’t. I’m generally even embarrassed to give it out to people I don’t know. I also didn’t want to use my real name, I hate my real name. I’m “TheNightStar” as far as i’m concerned… (or old variations of which that I can’t change retroactively now).
But I do use Facebook to whine and rant and talk about things that bother me, almost relentlessly.. and I probably would have done that, regardless of what my stupid name on it was.
Furthermore, I hate this perception that everyone just holds that anonymity on the internet, instantly profiles you as a douche or an asshole, when it’s actually all down to whether that PERSON is an asshole themselves, that determines how they conduct themselves or use anonymity as the excuse… the very same excuse that Facebook is using to vilify people for, just for going by their online handle, rather than their real name.
Especially for some people who want to be associated with a brand, not as their mundane, boring as shit name. I mean it’s just a name, like, who cares? I could call myself “Goodtime Funbag McSnozzle” for all it would matter when it came down to what I come to the internet for, and what I use the internet for.
But yeah, quite ironic that for a site who wants to make people use their individual names, they don’t seem very interested in treating them like individual people.
