Re: Google Begins Practically Begging You to Use Your Real Name

Surprisingly Good Evidence That Real Name Policies Fail To Improve Comments

quote:
YouTube has joined a growing list of social media companies who think that forcing users to use their real names will make comment sections less of a Trolling Wasteland, but there’s surprisingly good evidence from South Korea that real name policies fail at cleaning up comments. In 2007, South Korea temporarily mandated that all websites with over 100,000 viewers require real names, but scrapped it after it was found to be ineffective at cleaning up abusive and malicious comments (the policy reduced unwanted comments by an estimated .09%). We don’t know how this hidden gem of evidence skipped the national debate on real identities, but it’s an important lesson for YouTube, Facebook and Google, who have assumed that fear of judgement will change online behavior for the better.

if "google" did try to display my real name, i would close my google and youtube accounts.. that is probably the best thing that people could do.. if google tries to strip people of their online-privacy, just close their google accounts.. then google will see that people don't want their online-privacy stripped by google and maybe they will reconsider doing that..

This right here. I agree! If Google start this type of policy, i'll just delete my Google and Youtube accounts and be done with it. Not a big deal.

they realize it, I think this is why they are not requiring that the youtube account be linked to realname.

Let's hope they never do it!
