Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's Sister Said 'No more anonymous on Internet'

The sister of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants to put an end to online anonymity. She wants to force people to use their real names at all times on the Internet.
Randi Zuckerberg, who is Facebook's marketing director, believes users would act much more responsibly on the Internet if real names at all times were compulsory. Her remarks recall  the tangle that Google+, Facebook's fledging rival, got into the other week as it enforced its own real names policy.
Randi Zuckerberg was speaking during a presentation hosted on Tuesday by Marie Claire magazine on cyberbullying and social media. She said the use of real names online could help curb bullying and harassment on the web.

"I think anonymity on the Internet has to go away... People behave a lot better when they have their real names down. ... I think people hide behind anonymity and they feel like they can say whatever they want behind closed doors."
She added, "There's so much more we can do...We're actively tying to work with partners like Common Sense Media and our safety advisory committee."
Five months ago, Facebook, which requires all members to use their real names, announced new safety resources and tools for reporting issues, in conjunction with a White House summit for preventing bullying. Four months ago, the company rolled them out.
Christopher Poole, founder of 4chan, is however a defender of anonymity on the Internet , as ZDNet reports.
With anonymity, users can employ what Poole calls “fluid identity." He explains,  "Where there's no risk of failure, experimentation flourishes. On websites that require you to login via Facebook, the cost of failure is really high because you’re contributing as yourself. As a result, mistakes are attributed to who you are.

"I believe real names should only be required in scenarios where your actions can hurt others; in other cases, anonymity is just fine."
