    From CNN RE: Facebook

    Once verified, a user will be able to "more prominently display an alternate name (nickname, maiden name, byline, etc.) on their timelines in addition to their real name."
    Unlike Twitter, Facebook has required users to register under their real names.
    So, now presumably Stefani Germanotta can be Lady Gaga on Facebook, Declan McManus can be Elvis Costello, and Madonna Louise Ciccone can share photos of her Super Bowl performance using just her first name.

    At least NOW I know when I am listening to Diana (Krall) McManus...

    I'm thinking that if you don't have a facebook,things will be just fine.

    Some people like their privacy raped by a 27 YO narcissist asshole who hates them.
    Thankfully, I'm not one of them.
