Is this potentially an allowing of avatars as legitimate accounts?

Hamlet Au

Avatars can already use Facebook -- avatar owners just have to create a fan page for their avatar and use FB through that page.

Pussycat Catnap

That misses the entire point of having an avatar account, and of my question.

So again:
Is this potentially an allowing of avatars as legitimate accounts?

Note the word 'account'.

As in, without any direct connection back to any meat body.

Hamlet Au

Probably not, as that misses the entire point of using Facebook.

I miss the point of Facebook, so have no comment other than to say it’s about damn time FB recognized anonymous SOMETHING.

I think they were referring to an interview in Wired Magazine. Zuckerberg was referring to allowing 3rd apps use Facebook for authentication, without revealing the person's information to the app. Zuckerberg said, "But I don't think that this is making anonymity on Facebook. What it's doing is allowing someone to sign into an app without revealing who they are to the app."

Pussycat Catnap

Yeah its not anonymous in any real sense.

Read the Wired article. Its just marketing speech.

FB is still all up in your business. But now they promise not to tell you what they're doing if you ask them to keep you ignorant.

Adeon Writer

You can read Facebook anonymously without an account. Neat.

But I already blocked all their domain in my hosts file, so it's not much use to me. The links will break for me regardless.

Once bitten.


It is pseudonymous. Like SL is. On the internet, nothing is "anonymous", unless you hijack a PC in China and become a criminal by doing so.


I've got SL Facebook, and close to 3k friends, so yes SL FB is real.

The word anonymous and FB don't go together, so don't believe that anonymous crap.
