4chan founder Christopher Poole (aka “moot”) criticized Google and Facebook’s approach when it comes to user identity. Poole gave an engaging speech at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco, USA, where he argued that users should have the choice to use their real identities or remain anonymous on social networks. His concerns come from Facebook and Google Plus’ latest initiatives to disallow user anonymity.

Poole explains that:

We all have multiple identities. It’s part of being human. We’re all multi-faceted people. Facebook and Google do identity wrong, Twitter does it better, and I want to think about what the world would be if we did it right.
