well i had a facebook, but i deleted it because i really just didn't care for the way it made me feel about people. I would get jealous of my friends sometimes and they would post things that just made me roll my eyes and I just didn't care to have that get in the way of my judgement of people, and i haven't missed it really.
But my profile on here is pretty bare bones, like i don't even have my age or gender on here and i really don't have a good reason not to? I've also kept most all of my forum posts here androgynous, i kindof like to keep that enigmatic approach i guess. It's not that i have anything to hide, or even that i don't trust the environment of the internet. I just kinda feel that its unimportant information for any purposes that i have online and sharing it would only pose somewhat of a security risk for me.
I don't really have to be anybody online, and to be quite honest, i kinda like being a nobody. I just like being a person that anyone can talk to about anything

Used to have a real pic of me as my profile image here.. until it was stolen by someone who was unhappy with me, he created an alt similar to my username with that pic to post some nasty stuff (before he got banned and those posts deleted).

So yeah, very glad this isn't my real name as well. That kind of stuff might show up in Google searches that future employers might run of my real name. Even though it can be explained, it wouldn't be fun. Everything I post is what I'd post under my real name.. unfortunately, never know when someone else might steal my name or picture, just to post stuff that I never would in order to cause trouble for me.

On an old chat I use to share pictures and my number.. of course all the members went to shit and I ended up growing uncomfortable doing so.
Think if I ever did something like that I'd maybe show brief photos and maybe stuff like Skype account- trivial but commutative things.

Never.Posting personal info like my name is just not advisable.

I don't like my real name, so it would be stupid to use it. As for privacy, I don't care. It's not like someone's going to use it against me, but I'm not going to tell everyone, anyway.

To be honest, I don't use my real name because a lot of people can't pronounce it and it's a very uncommon name.

I used my real name, Ayesha, on here. Honestly because, I'm pretty sure with my first name you can't find where I live.

Nobody will know my real name. I am too crafty.
And if they somehow find out, it won't help to identify me.

I'am comfortable with using just my first name. I couldn’t care less, and as for my age and gender, I'm fine with that too.

I wouldn't be able to remember who I told the fake name to. I just use my real name.

Well my name is Callum so I have no problem sharing that as it is very common in the UK. & my last name is really common too so knowing my name won't help anyone out that much.

My name remains private. It's actually one of my job's requirements not to have my name or face freely displayed on social networks or sites such as this.

Me neither, I don't feel comfortable using mine on social media at present either.
