  • Debate: Should Social Sites Allow Anonymous Users?

    by Cindy Cohn and Colette Vogele

    Every new website that allows users to participate faces the same question: do you require users to use their real names? Facebook has taken a firm position that it will require real names, even at the cost of disappearances of human rights activists around the world. Other sites have suffered as anonymous speakers poison the conversation and use the shield of anonymity to harass women. What's a social site to do? Join two of the Internet's top lawyers, EFF's Legal Director Cindy Cohn and Colette Vogele, as they debate the question.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Saturday 10th March
