I am really starting to like the 4chan founder. He does a very good talk about the fact that neither facebook or g+ are doing a good job of handling online identities. In fact he praises Twitter for allowing people to have multiple accounts and pseudonyms which allow people to identify and share as who they want to be rather than the name that their parents gave them.
I agree in some context pseudonyms are not the best option. In fact we do use LinkedIn as a resource to learn more about one's identity, but do services such as g+ and facebook have to insist on people maintaining real identities?
What are your thoughts on this?
