Zuckerberg's Sister: Anonymity on Internet must disappear

Randi, Mark Zuckerberg's sister and Facebook's director of marketing forced the employees to use their real names and email addresses when accessing the popular social network.

Randi Zuckerberg says that the people have to give up the anonymous status on the Internet, because that will prevent any act of harassment on the web.

"I believe that anonymity on the Internet must go away. People have a much better prestige if signing with their real names. People hide behind anonymity and have the feeling they can say whatever they think of," said Randi Zuckerberg.

Eric Schmidt, Google CEO supports this initiative. Moreover, it says that the online anonymity is dangerous and he believes that the Government would ask soon the Americans to make use of their name in all online activities.
However there is a problem: what if the people prefer to have their own privacy then? Anonymity is dangerous but probably the accessible full personal details are even more dangerous in the case of a breach.
