But such experiences are routine in the lab of Henrik Ehrsson, a neuroscientist at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, who uses illusions to probe, stretch and displace people's sense of self.

Google vs Facebook: The Anti-Privacy War

Google vs Facebook: The Anti-Privacy War | Persistent Identity | Scoop.it

"Facebook. Google. It doesn’t seem to matter anymore. The big players in the social networking game don’t seem to value user privacy or users’ control over their own data anymore. I held out hope for Google, thinking their business pages would be a viable option for those of us who network professionally using pen names. But even that has some privacy concerns as pages must be tied to profiles which are subject to the real name policy.

 

Even when they enable the option to assign other administrators to pages, Google will have a record of personal ties to businesses that frankly isn’t their business. As someone who takes on corporate and small business ghostwriting work, Google shouldn’t be able to tie my private Plus profile to any pages owned by my clients unless I choose to publicly share that information."

Do Courts Back Google and Facebook’s View of Anonymity?

Do Courts Back Google and Facebook’s View of Anonymity? | Persistent Identity | Scoop.it

Internet users who want to remain anonymous online have been pushing back against media companies’ efforts to strip them of their pseudonyms. The issue has fanned a debate over whether people are entitled to have hidden identities or only a single real one. Meanwhile, courts have been ruling on the question in another context—and advocates for anonymous speech may not like what they’re saying.
