Philosophy Wire: Facebook. Anonymity. Eponymity. Crazy Lamb!

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-11-14]: Facebook tries ti impose the use of real names to it's users. [1] In the era of shallowness, it is more important what your name is than what you actually say... I imagine Kierkegaard could not have an account in FB... Name your self "crazy lamb"! Write wise things! Make "Crazy Lamb" synonymous to Aristotle! And then just wait for Facebook to delete your account.

PS. OK, in this case Facebook also wants to make some money by exploiting the real identities of it's users. But no interesting wire could come from this... ;)
