    Challenge authority.

    Defy the rules.

    Resistors gu braith.

    My job requires me to keep up the museum facebook page.

    Facebook requires me to have a personal page in order to do my job.

    What I call myself is my business.

    Good for you. The people I trust to know more about this kind of thing than I do say that if you just MUST be on such sites for whatever reason, "LIE"!

    Please, sir! Pseudonyms are an honorable literary device.

    Mark Zuckerberg is in a lot of trouble overall. Maybe when he finally gets thrown out, there won't be this silly stuff. They also ask your age, including the year, so I gave them 1915. Take that!

    I'm waiting for the inevitable crash and burn. I've seen TONS of fad sites like face***k come and go over the years, but never one as evil. Nor one with as many apologists on its behalf.

    Absolutely hate this policy. Honestly I would rather just create a website on a website builder like hPage.com and have my portfolio and work stated there rather than have my private details out there for other people to take advantage of. At least with a website, I can have more bookings and I can control what I want to be put there without anyone forcing me what to say.

    Having your own website is a mark of professionalism.

    Depending on sites like face***k, is amateurish at best.

    Good on you!

    Rule #1: Never, EVER, use your legal name on the Internet. NEVER.

    Can’t agree more! I’m so glad I never used my real name, I’m un-google-ble and I think that’s great. Yet a lot of people go on LinkedIn with their real names, and maybe it’s useful for some sectors of work, just wouldn’t like to be on it. Also some companies put their employees on their websites with names. But sometimes it’s unavoidable. However it’s a bit different for belly dancers, it’s more risky to be out there with your real name. Lots of tribal fusion dancers do it though.

    My last employer was like this - but I opted out.
    The ancient practice of telling everyone your "use" name, and only telling those you truly trust your "real" name has come full circle. Your "real" name has power over you.
