Randi Zuckerberg Says Online Anonymity Has To Go

From the Huffington Post:

Randi Zuckerberg, Facebook’s marketing director, has a fix for cyberbullying: stop people from doing anything online without their names attached….“I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away,” she said during a panel discussion on social media hosted Tuesday evening by Marie Claire magazine. “People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. … I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors.”

Do you agree with Zuckerberg’s sister (in case you were wondering — I thought maybe she was his wife)? Personally, I kind of like cyberbullying (apparently that’s one word). I can’t think of anything more pleasing than having written an article online and receiving twenty or thirty anonymous comments that say awful and outrageous things about my person.

Maybe that’s not considered cyberbullying? I enjoy gauging reactions of people with controversial information and outlandish statements. I like that people can really “cut loose” without having to post their actual names.

So I say, don’t ruin my trip, Randi Zuckerberg. And please, if anybody has anything incendiary to say, don’t be shy.
