Facebook should allow you to use pseudonyms: coalition

A group called The Nameless Coalition believes Facebook should get rid of its real names policy, and allow people to use pseudonyms on the social media platform.

According to the group, Facebook’s real names policy “clearly violates European data protection laws”.

“In the meantime, we wanted to create demands that would support the dignity, safety, and expressive rights of all users,” the group said.

It sent a coalition letter to Facebook, and created an open petition to Facebook in support of the demands.

“With your help, we can make sure Facebook is truly a safe and accessible place for those who make it a rich community,” the group said.
