Chris Morran of The Consumerist blogged about Facebook’s attitude towards data : “I just want Facebook and others who take part in targeted advertising to admit that it has nothing to do with providing users with something they want. 'Facebook have announced that they intend to move forward with their “real name” policy, which requires users to use their “authentic” name. The announcement comes after a previous attempt stalled due to strong criticism from the Social Network’s users, resulting in Facebook apologising—a decision they’ve now seemingly reversed.
