Bowing to unprecedented pressure from users, the media and the government, Facebook has agreed to grant total anonymity and privacy to all users.
Just as the change came into force, there were dozens of reports of users being visited by Facebook personnel.
One user, Herbert Rawlings, 47, from Blackburn, Lancashire reported that a Facebook representative burst into his home wearing an “Anonymous” Vendetta mask and clutching a shotgun, screaming: “This shit works both ways, sucker!” The representative then asked a series of very personal questions and left.
However, the new resolution has not been welcomed by everyone and users took to Facebook to express their opinion.
Someone, some age, from somewhere said: “This is awful, I don’t know who I’m annoying.”
Someone else from somewhere else said: “It’s just like living in London but without getting stabbed.”
Yet another person from another place said: “It’s taken all the fun out of trolling.”
Another person said: “Oh no! I might be talking to my mother!”
A Facebook spokesperson, who said they would be happy to be named, said: “You wanted anonymity, now you’ve got it. We’d be happy to review the policy but we don’t know who to email to get a board meeting together.”
