Do you believe that Facebook's policy that all users must be under their 'real name' contributes to members' safety or a policy that puts users more at risk?
This article is centered on the current battle of drag queens being able to use their preferred name over a birth name but also, imho, focuses on a main issue of individual's privacy / security:

"Their policy is to provide a safe environment, but we feel that by requiring people to use their legal names it makes people more unsafe by opening them up to attacks," she said.
Lil Miss Hot Mess said that as one of the most important social public forums, Facebook's policy is an issue that affects the transgender and LGBT community, social workers, teachers, victims of domestic violence and people who want anonymity for any number of reasons.
Thoughts? (FTR - the article does mention that Google+ recently ended their policy to require legal names.)
