Under the name Psyche Coderre, which is my real surname. Better than the real full name, but I feel like I'm naked from the waist down. Ugh :(

Still going to keep being active on the G+ community (https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/103143483314387812335?cfem=1) -- which has 99 members after only a day and a half -- and have just been added as an admin on the LJ group too (http://fb-v-privacy.livejournal.com/). I won't be online much after tomorrow, but not giving up, and going to keep fighting for those who are still locked out and who have been forced to take names they don't want. Grr, shakey fist.

Facebook will be happy though as it will enable them to sell your data. :(

I wonder at what point they will also start insisting on real date of birth, real workplace, university, etc. I currently have no workplace or university on there and a date of birth which is my real birthday but a very obviously false year of birth. It is supposed to be only visible to me according to my 'privacy settings' but it's quite obvious that they do allow advertisers to see it as I get a lot of adverts for cruises, remortgaging your home, stairlifts etc. And I wonder how many people on FB who aren't worried by the real name thing because it doesn't affect them personally realise that it's surely only the thin end of the wedge. xxx

They have a strict new set of terms and conditions coming into force on 1st January. I'm thinking of organising a Mass Facebook Exodus Day for that day, I wonder if we'll get enough participation to make a difference?
Still not averse to protesting at their offices. When I get back from holiday.
